Authors: Ogawa Y, Ogawa Y Abstract Malignant skin tumors and precancerous lesions have a predilection to be located in the nasal dorsum or sidewall. Although invasive reconstructions have been presented, no simple and suitable method has yet been reported for this area. The flap presented herein, named the lateral nasal advancement flap, is designed on the adjacent lateral region of the sidewall or nasal dorsum and advanced in the medial direction. Two Burow's triangles are removed in the upper and lower portions of the flap: the upper triangle along the nasofacial sulcus and the lower triangle along the nasofacial...

This study investigated the effect of infiltrating lidocaine into nasal packs on the pain caused by pack removal after closed reduction of nasal bone fractures. METHODS: Seventy-five patients who underwent closed reduction of nasal bone fractures between March 2016 and March 2018 were enrolled in this prospective, randomized, single-blind study. Merocel (hydroxylated polyvinyl acetate) packs were applied bilaterally and retained for 5 days. Twenty minutes before removal, both packs were rehydrated with 6 mL of 2% lidocaine in 26 patients and with 6 mL of saline in 24 patients; the packs were not rehydrated in 25 patien...

Rhinoplasty in patients of Middle Eastern descent presents a unique challenge. There are a large number of variations of skin tone, skin thickness, and structural deformities, which require a high degree of thoughtfulness and planning. A thorough history and physical examination is the cornerstone to achieving a good result. An open and honest discussion is necessary to fully understand the patient ’s goals. The surgeon should clearly define which goals are achievable and which are not. Conservative techniques will help achieve a natural, balanced outcome and will allow for preservation of nasal function.

CONCLUSIONS: Most patients with isolated cleft lip may not require long-term, longitudinal evaluation by cleft team specialists. Cleft teams should develop limited follow-up protocols for these children to improve resource allocation and promote value-based care in this patient population.

AbstractRhinoplasty is undoubtedly one of the most challenging operations in the face. Since its introduction by the fathers of modern cosmetic rhinoplasty such as John Orlando Roe in the United States and Jack Joseph in Europe, we have witnessed many advances and refinements in the nose approach, and specifically in the management of the nasal dorsum. This is the case of the conservative rhinoplasty techniques, Push down and Let down, that have become very popular again in recent years. The aim of this article is to present a new modification of the dorsal conservative techniques with predictable and lasting esthetic resu...

A rare case of intraosseous cavernous hemangioma was identified in the nasal root. Using a combination of endoscopic surgery and open rhinoplasty, an osteotomy was performed and resection of the hemangioma was successfully achieved with transcolumellar and infracartilaginous incisions and 2 stab incisions. No adverse side effects were observed after the procedure, no tumor recurrence was observed at the 16-month-postoperative follow-up. The preserved periosteum contributed to the osteogenesis and thus, a need for a reconstructive surgery was indicated.

Conclusions Anatomic reconstruction of the nasal dorsum and refining the nasal tip using an osseocartilaginous rib graft with the cantilever technique are effective in acute nasal trauma patients who wish to enhance their nasal profile in the primary treatment setting.

AbstractBackgroundThere is an anecdotal belief among some surgeons performing Asian eyelid surgery that double eyelid surgery itself decreases eyebrow position. However, the exact amount of descent and the specific changes in the proportion of facial aesthetics are unknown.PurposeThe goal of this study is to determine whether there indeed is a change in brow position after double eyelidplasty and to quantify the proportional differences associated with the change. The three-point double eyelids surgery method was used so that the change in the brow position is solely attributed to the surgery itself and not to the excision...
