Vertical Mammaplasty with Retromammary En Bloc Breast Suspension
ConclusionThe functions of the breast organ are preserved in theen bloc suspension technique. In patients with dense breasts, a good upper pole fullness was achieved with a high success rate. Young patients and patients with a body mass index below 25 are suitable for this technique. However, the same success rate could not be achieved in elderly patients with fatty breasts.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

“Radix Pillow” Constructs with Fascial Extension for Radix Augmentation in Primary Rhinoplasty
AbstractTemporalis fascia and diced cartilage, in varying combinations, are currently commonly employed for augmentation of the radix in rhinoplasty. Although existing literature is replete with papers and suggested variations, there is some lack of practical detail on how to use such techniques. The authors present a reproducible, multilayered, “pillow” construct of temporalis fascia for selective radix augmentation in primary rhinoplasty, with or without the addition of diced cartilage. Precise measurements for accurate multiple folding, exact tailoring of the construct to recipient size dimensions, and fixat...

Can the Elastic of Surgical Face Masks Stimulate Ear Protrusion in Children?
AbstractIn this period of the Covid-19 pandemic, a protective mask has become a common object of use to contain virus transmission. The imminent need for masks has led many governments to produce them, including surgical masks with elastic loops or masks with side cuts at the ears. Among those on the market, surgical masks with elastic loops are the ones most chosen by parents for their children. These elastics cause constant compression on the skin and, consequently, on the cartilage of the auricle, leading to erythematous and painful lesions of the retroauricular skin when the masks are used for many hours a day. Pre-ado...

The Nipple Split Sharing vs. Conventional Nipple Graft Technique in Chest Wall Masculinization Surgery: Can We Improve Patient Satisfaction and Aesthetic Outcomes?
AbstractBackgroundDouble incision mastectomy with free nipple grafts (DIFNG) offers more flexible nipple –areola complex (NAC) resizing and repositioning in transmale and gender non-conforming individuals. The cis-male NAC has a smaller diameter, oval shape and lateral position. If nipple grafts are performed without having these considerations, aesthetics can be dissatisfying. We aim to describe the nipple split sharing technique during chest wall masculinization surgery comparing surgical, patient-reported outcomes (PRO) and aesthetic results with the conventional technique.MethodsThis was a retrospective review of...

A Modified Cosmetic Genioplasty Can Affect Airway Space Positively in Skeletal Class II Patients: Studying Alterations of Hyoid Bone Position and Posterior Airway Space
AbstractBackgroundImproving the posterior airway space is one of the most important functions of genioplasty. Studies have shown that the posterior airway space (PAS) can play an important role in the evaluation of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the airway safety of our modified technology by observing the impact on PAS in skeletal Class II patients without OSAS.MethodsWe have modified a cosmetic genioplasty, which can guarantee the continuity of the lower edge of the bilateral mandible by rotating the chin segment clockwise. Fourteen patients submitted to our modified cos...
