Radiographic Study of the Nasal Valve in Different CT Evaluation Method in Asian Patients with Unilateral Cleft Lip Nose
ConclusionThe results of the two CT evaluation methods showed that there was a significant difference in nasal valve area on the cleft and non-cleft sides, which was significantly associated with nasal ventilation disturbance. The CT evaluation method based on standard axial 3D reconstruction is more convenient to use in the clinic, can be used for pre-surgical evaluation of nasal repair in patients with secondary nasal deformities of unilateral cleft lip, and is valuable for treatment.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

The 3-Level Approach to Facelift Planning: A Simple Paradigm for Surgical Rejuvenation of the Face
AbstractOur role as aesthetic surgeons demands individualized surgical planning that maximizes patient input and understanding. The value of such shared decision-making (SDM) in aesthetic surgery is becoming increasingly appreciated. This is particularly true for potential patients seeking surgical rejuvenation of the face, where the volume of “educational” information available on the internet, and through various social medial channels, may be overwhelming and even misleading. Presented is a “3-Level approach to facelift planning” named for the facial subregions targeted. This novel paradigm maximizes SDM with it...

The Problem of Diagnostic Criteria of Breast Implant Illness in Women After Breast Reconstruction: Review and Discussion of a Case
ConclusionBased on our case, we point on the fact that BII diagnosis in patients after breast reconstruction is challenging. We suggest that while considering such a diagnosis and further proceedings, e.g. explantation, especially in patients after breast reconstruction, some exclusion criteria should be considered. Dissatisfaction with the result of the surgery can also lead to somatisation and the presence of real clinical symptoms, which should not be confused with the possible autoimmune reaction to silicone particles.Level of Evidence IV This journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Versus Platelet-Poor Plasma for Treating Facial Photoaging: a Double-Blind Randomized Controlled Splitting Face Study
ConclusionsBoth PRP and PPP are effective in treating facial photoaging. PRP exhibited slightly superior efficacy in enhancing overall skin condition, while PPP was slightly more effective in improving shallow wrinkles. This study provides valuable evidence for the use of PRP and PPP in facial rejuvenation procedures.Level of Evidence IThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each submission to which Evidence-Based Medicine rankings are applicable. This excludes Review Articles, Book Reviews, and manuscripts that concern Basic Science, Animal Studies, Cadaver Studies, and Experimental Studies. For a...
