Efficacy and Safety of Triamcinolone Acetonide Injections Following Rhinoplasty: A Systematic Review of Recommended Doses, Complications, and Outcomes
ConclusionTo our knowledge, this is the first systematic review to address this issue. Our results demonstrate the ease and safety of TAIs as a first-line treatment, with positive outcomes and limited complications. TAIs can be used early postoperatively to minimize the need for revision surgery. Despite the limited number of studies on TAIs, this study provides the best available evidence that can help surgeons decide when to use the injection, the intervals between doses, and the duration of use. Further randomized controlled trials are required to confirm our findings.Level of Evidence IIThis journal requires that autho...

Greater Risk Taking in Cosmetic Surgery Acceptance and History: An Experimental and Computational Study
AbstractCosmetic surgery is ever more affordable and accessible, but carries physical and psychological risks. Yet, no study to date has directly examined risk-taking behaviour under controlled conditions, beyond self-report and in relation to cosmetic surgery attitudes. We used the Balloon Analogue Risk Task and advanced computational modelling to measure decision-making behaviour and identify the latent parameters driving behaviour associated with cosmetic surgery attitudes in women with no cosmetic surgery history (N = 265) and a subsample of women with a cosmetic surgery history (N = 24). Risk taking was higher in wome...
