Profile of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in Obese and Lean Environments
ConclusionsGenerally, obesity reduces ASC qualities and may have an effect on the therapeutic value of ASCs.

Scroll Ligament Preservation and Improvement in Nasal Tip with the Room Concept
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...

Lipoplasty Combined with Percutaneous Radiofrequency Dermaplasty: A New Strategy for Body Contouring
AbstractBackgroundA new technique in plastic surgery termed percutaneous radiofrequency dermaplasty (PRD) is described. Customized radiofrequency energy is applied via the percutaneous route to produce skin tightening and fascia contraction at body temperature, avoiding thermal injury. We combine PRD with lipoplasty and call this combined procedure dermaplasty-assisted lipoplasty (DAL). The purpose of this study was to review both the safety and efficacy of DAL.MethodsWe developed the required novel device and technique to perform DAL and then performed a clinical trial including Type I and Type II lipodystrophy female pat...

A Review of National Insurance Coverage of Post-bariatric Upper Body Lift
ConclusionPolicy criteria for coverage of mastopexy or UBE differ greatly between companies. Further evaluation of medical necessity criteria for post-bariatric mastopexy and UBE with the establishment of a standardised guideline is needed.

Amniotic Allograft Implantation for Midface Aging Correction: A Retrospective Comparative Study with Platelet-Rich Plasma
AbstractAmniotic allografts are becoming more popular for use in soft tissue growth in many areas of medicine because of their immunoprivilege that allows them to proliferate into tissues without rejection by the host. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has crossed over from wide orthopedic uses to the aesthetic market for hair restoration and midface volume replacement, owing, in part, to the minimal risk associated with the procedure and the convenience of in-office application. In addition, growth factors provided by PRP help stimulate collagen synthesis in the aging face. However, the potential recruitment of the patient &rsqu...

Reversal of Post-filler Vision Loss and Skin Ischaemia with High-Dose Pulsed Hyaluronidase Injections
We present a case report of a patient who developed features of vascular involvement after two ml of HA filler injection in the nasal dorsum, tip and columella. The patient initially developed tell-tale signs of impending skin necrosis in the nasal and forehead skin followed by ptosis, severe pain and progressive vision loss in the right eye until a point where the patient could only perceive light. The patient was managed with multiple doses of hyaluronidase in the involved skin and two doses of retrobulbar injection for vision loss. Significant recovery in the skin and ophthalmic components occurred within 20  days ...

AbstractChest wall shape is an important aspect to consider when planning a breast augmentation. Minor chest wall deformities are usually underestimated by the patient and surgeon and may compromise postoperative outcomes. Lower costal cartilage dysmorphia or winged rib is one of these minor underestimated chest wall deformities characterized by a visible and palpable cartilaginous prominence under the inframammary fold and causes discomfort in patients decreasing the satisfaction with the breast augmentation surgery. For these patients, the author utilized an innovative surgical technique that allows resection of the prot...
