Closed Rhinoplasty with a Mushroom-Shaped Costal Cartilage Graft in East Asian Patients

ConclusionThe present results suggest that the mushroom-shaped costal cartilage graft in closed rhinoplasty is a good choice for the correction of a bulbous under projected nasal tip.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

ConclusionPost-HA filler vision loss is nearly always of immediate onset. Partial vision loss after HA filler injection with the involvement of smaller branches of the retina, other than central retinal artery or ophthalmic artery, has more favorable visual outcomes.Level of Evidence IIIThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Robert Chelsea turned down the first face he was offered. It was a fine face, one that could have taken him off the transplant waiting list after just a couple months. But Chelsea—severely disfigured after a catastrophic car accident five years earlier—was in no hurry. He’d gotten used to tilting his head back so food and water wouldn’t fall out of his nearly lipless mouth. He knew how to respond compassionately to children who stared in shock and fear. The face, offered in May 2018, had belonged to a man with skin that was much fairer than what remained of Chelsea’s—so light that Chelse...

Conclusion: This procedure can be used to effectively solve: curvature of the costal cartilage segment itself; warping of the carved costal cartilage; and effective use of the costal cartilage segment. The procedure has achieved satisfactory outcomes, and its application is worth extending to clinical practice.

The visibility of cartilage grafts underneath the skin is a complication of rhinoplasty particularly in patients with thin nasal skin. Preparing the graft with optimum dimensions, symmetry, and smoothness is crucial for the fine crafting of the cartilage to prevent visibility. The camouflage of the visible cartilage graft with a crushed cartilage, a resected cephalic portion of the lower lateral cartilage, fascia, connective and/or fatty tissues is another option for hiding the visibility. The nasal tip is the most common location where the graft visibility is of concern. The authors introduce the smoothing of the cartila...

The comparison of patient satisfaction with the use of diced cartilage graft wrapped in fascia (DCF) graft in composite versus dorsum augmentation-only reconstructions (DAOR), technical hints and complications in our series, affecting the end-result and the patient satisfaction (PS) has been presented. Between 2013 and 2018 the DC-F graft is used in 32 rhinoplasty cases. Nine of patients have had composite reconstruction (CR). The DAOR has been needed for 23 of patients. The follow-up period has been 2 months to 3 years. The authors have obtained satisfactory results in 24 cases but some untoward progress in 8 cases. A q...

AbstractIntroductionIn rhinoplasty operations, concavity and convexity have a particular place in terms of aesthetic and functional problems. To fix the problems associated with concavity and convexity, several techniques were reported for straightening of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC). The scroll ligament and its associated tissues can be preserved, and a better nasal tip can be obtained after the surgery. The purpose of this research is to present a new, more comfortable and more practical technique to overcome the problems associated with LLC.MethodsThe records of 190 patients who were operated on with this novel te...

We describe a revision rhinoplasty case where hypoperfusion of the nasal tip was seen following placement of structural grafts to the nasal tip, and before the grafts being removed SPY, angiography was used to evaluate if topical nitroglycerin alone could correct hypoperfusion of the nasal tip rather than removal of structural grafts. A SPY angiography was performed to evaluate the hypoperfusion to the nasal tip. Repeat imaging was then performed following treatment with topical nitroglycerin alone. Perfusion of the nasal tip was restored and confirmed by SPY angiography system. The objective findings from the SPY angiogra...

CONCLUSIONS: PDS plates have been used in the United States and Europe for more than 10 years to provide a scaffold for the nasal framework. These plates can provide reinforcement to columellar struts, L-struts, and septal extension grafts. In addition, they can assist in deformity correction. Therefore, PDS plates can be considered a good adjuvant material for Asian patients with weak and small nasal cartilage. PMID: 30934180 [PubMed]

Conclusion The results of the study reveal a new objective variable that can impact nasal tip dynamics and patient-related differences following rhinoplasty. This study not only brings forth a different perspective in the evaluation of nasal tip dynamics but can also provide data for determining ideal values for cartilage prefabrication.

A rhinoplasty, or nose job, is surgery performed to alter the way your nose functions and looks. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 220,000 rhinoplasties are performed yearly, making this the most common facial plastic surgery procedure. Rhinoplasty can simultaneously help you improve breathing and achieve a more balanced appearance. Is rhinoplasty right for me? A common medical reason for rhinoplasty is difficulty breathing through the nose. Nasal obstruction can cause problems with exercise, disturb sleep, contribute to snoring and sleep apnea, or interfere with other activities. If medical tre...
