Sonoelastographic Evaluation of the Lower Lateral Nasal Cartilage Lateral Crus, Auricular Conchal Cartilage, and Costal Cartilage
Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-3399577We investigated the sonoelastographic features of the lower lateral nasal cartilage lateral crus (LLNC-LC), auricular conchal cartilage (ACC), and costal cartilage (CC). In this prospective study, group 1 consisted of 60 participants (30 males and 30 females) between 18 and 35 years of age. Group 2 consisted of 60 participants (30 males and 30 females) between 35 and 50 years of age. Strain elastography (SE) and shear wave elastography (SWE) were performed. For all LLNC-LCs and ACCs, type I SE was detected more in group 2, type II SE was detected more in group 1, and type III SE was detected more in group 1 (p
Conclusion Nasal elongation using costal cartilage grafting is an effective therapeutic approach for patients with severe short noses. Reliable outcomes and the use of autologous tissue along with minimal donor site morbidity contribute to the high patient acceptance. Meticulous surgical technique and careful patient selection are prerequisites for successful results.
Conclusions The vomer bone graft has been shown to correct the lateral and inferior disorientation of the alar base and improve the nostril and nasal tip aesthetic measurements. The vomer bone is therefore a sufficient bone source for grafting with high viability and no resorption.
Conclusions Although plastic surgery trainees endorse gradual operative autonomy overall, a majority of final-year trainees do not perceive supervision only independence in the majority of core procedures queried. Faculties perceive higher trainee operative autonomy than trainees for most procedures. Discordant approaches to case logging were identified both among trainees and between trainees and faculties. Standardization may improve both progression and assessment of operative autonomy in plastic surgery training.

Abstract Body dysmorphic disorder and borderline personality disorder are common in esthetic practices and occur in up to 15% of patients. Operating on these patients may not only lead to dissatisfaction but may also worsen their premorbid condition and can induce negative behavior toward the practice. Preventing surgery and referring patients for cognitive therapy is essential. An adequate understanding of these conditions and the available screening tools is indispensable for all esthetic practitioners. Unrealistic emotional attribution to a facial shape, multiple procedures, a near-normal nose at the outset, ch...
CONCLUSION: The preliminary experience of 205 cases with a revision rate of less than 10% is promising. A final evaluation of the technique will only be possible after further studies and evaluation of long-term results. PMID: 32995897 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: In vivo and in vitro experiments detected no significant difference between the biocompatibilities and degradabilities of modified and commercial PDS plates. The results of this study suggest that the modified PDS can be used to produce versatile, low cost, absorbable graft materials for rhinoplasty and septoplasty.
