Investigating the Contraction Pattern of the Zygomaticus Major Muscle and its Clinical Relevance: A Functional MRI Study
ConclusionThis MRI-based study indicates that the zygomaticus major muscle experiences isotonic contraction, characterized by decreased length and increased width and thickness. The findings underline the importance of muscle thickness as a reliable parameter in assessing facial muscle function and offer valuable guidance for practitioners in accurately evaluating muscle performance during different facial expressions.No Level AssignedThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each submission to which Evidence-Based Medicine rankings are applicable.

Reply to Comment to: Tuberous Breast Associated with Chest Wall Deformity: A Challenging Planning for Breast Augmentation
AbstractEven in cases of noticeable breasts asymmetry, such as in our case, it is advisable to use implants with the same volume and projection, in order to maintain a similar breast footprint and allow a similar aging behavior over time. This can be achieved by reducing the size of the larger breast, thereby addressing the volume discrepancy before the placement of the implants. However, in our case, the skeletal deformities resulted in a significant disparity in the projection of the right and left sides of the chest wall, hindering the use of breast implants with identical projection. Therefore, due to this asymmetrical...

A Two-Step Approach for Breast Augmentation with Chest Wall Deformity?
AbstractBreast augmentation in the case of chest wall deformity can be challenging. It is essential to treat the two problematics separately, and not to attempt compensation for asymmetry with vastly different breast implants. With this work, we wish to highlight the approach based on the use of custom-made 3D implants, enabling optimal correction of thoracic deformity. A first case study illustrates a one-step approach to correcting deformity and augmenting the breast. The importance of separate management of these issues lies in the fact that possible normalization of thoracic dysmorphia alone can sometimes lead to withd...

In Vitro Study of Thymosin Beta 4 Promoting Transplanted Fat Survival by Regulating Adipose-Derived Stem Cells
ConclusionsT β4 enhances adipose viability in AFG via facilitating ADSC proliferation and reducing apoptosis, and acts as a crucial positive regulator of ADSC-associated angiogenesis. Additionally, Tβ4 could be accountable for the phenotypic adjustment of ADSCs by regulating the Hippo pathway.No Level AssignedThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each submission to which Evidence-Based Medicine rankings are applicable.

Endoscopic-Assisted Forehead Augmentation with Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) Patient-Specific Implant (PSI) for Aesthetic Considerations
ConclusionsPEEK PSIs can be prefabricated to achieve accurate remodeling of the frontal contour with good esthetic outcomes. The endoscope provides direct and magnified vision, which allow easy access to the supraorbital rim and lateral edge of the eyebrow arch and confirming the position of the implants without damaging nerves and vessels. Endoscopic-assisted forehead augmentation with PEEK PSI is safe and effective.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.
