Nasal alar rim redraping method to prevent alar retraction in rhinoplasty for Asian men: A retrospective case series.
This study reports a novel method of redraping soft tissue along the alar rim to prevent alar retraction in Asians. METHODS: Twenty young Asian men who underwent primary rhinoplasty with septoplasty were retrospectively reviewed. After the usual rhinoplasty procedures, alar rim redraping was conducted for the soft tissue along the transcolumellar and bilateral infracartilaginous incisions. The longest axis of the nostril (a) and the height of the nostril from that axis (b) were measured in anterior-posterior and lateral views. The preoperative and postoperative ratios (b/a) were analyzed using the paired t-test. RE...

Catastrophic complications from filler injection on external genitalia.
We report a life-threatening complication in a patient who developed sepsis and necrotizing fasciitis. A 45-year-old woman presented with right leg pain and discharge from the labia majora. The patient had received a soft tissue filler injection of unknown composition 1 year earlier and had recently undergone incision and drainage for an inflammatory cystic nodule. Antibiotic treatment was administered for cellulitis, but the infection progressed to necrotizing fasciitis and sepsis. Fasciotomy and intensive care unit treatment improved the systemic infection, but the soft tissue filler injection site did not respond to tre...

Thoracodorsal artery flaps for breast reconstruction-the variants and its approach.
We describe the different surgical techniques and our thoughts and experience regarding indications and selection between these procedures for individual patients who opt for breast reconstruction. We have performed 574 TDA flaps in 491 patients: 60 extended LD flaps, 122 conventional LD flaps, two MSLD flaps, 233 propeller TDAP flaps, 122 TDAP flaps, and 35 free contralateral TDAP flaps for stacked TDAP breast reconstruction. All the TDA flaps are important flaps for reconstruction of the breast. The LD flap is still an option, although we prefer flaps without muscle when possible. The vascular-pedicled TDAP flap is an op...

Long V-Y advancement technique for large nipple reconstruction in Asian women.
Authors: Jang N, Kim J, Shin HW, Suk SW Abstract Previously reported nipple-areolar complex reconstruction (NAR) methods involve multiple incisions and wide skin redraping, which increase retraction forces and heighten the risk of nipple-areolar complex (NAC) flattening. We introduce a NAR method using the long V-Y advancement technique that can overcome these disadvantages. A V-shaped flap is designed with the width of the flap base 4-5 mm larger than the diameter of the normal nipple. The flap length is designed to be at least 2.5 times its width. Dissection is performed to the top of the artificial dermal matrix...

Vascularized bone grafts for post-traumatic defects in the upper extremity.
Authors: Petrella G, Tosi D, Pantaleoni F, Adani R Abstract Vascularized bone grafts (VBGs) are widely employed to reconstruct upper extremity bone defects. Conventional bone grafting is generally used to treat defects smaller than 5-6 cm, when tissue vascularization is adequate and there is no infection risk. Vascularized fibular grafts (VFGs) are mainly used in the humerus, radius or ulna in cases of persistent non-union where traditional bone grafting has failed or for bone defects larger than 6 cm. Furthermore, VFGs are considered to be the standard treatment for large bone defects located in the radius, ulna a...

Correction of the deviated tip and columella in crooked nose.
Authors: Suh MK Abstract The primary procedural components of deviated nose correction are as follows: osteotomy to correct bony deviation, septal deviation correction, manipulation of the dorsal septum to correct upper lateral cartilage deviation, and correction of functional problems (manipulation for correction of internal valve collapse and hypertrophy of the inferior turbinate). The correction of tip and nostril asymmetry cannot be overemphasized, because if tip and nostril asymmetry is not corrected, patients are unlikely to provide favorable evaluations from an aesthetic standpoint. Tip asymmetry, deviated c...

Correction of bony deviation in rhinoplasty.
Authors: Kim KH Abstract In rhinoplasty, osteotomy is becoming more and more frequent as a way to achieve aesthetically pleasing and functional results, as well as patient satisfaction. In procedures to correct a deviated nose, osteotomy to correct the bone plays an essential role in addition to correction of the septum and cartilage, and osteotomy can reduce the wide nose bridge and give a slightly higher appearance in Asian rhinoplasty. However, osteotomy is relatively invasive, and the nasal bones of Asians are often low and thick, so bleeding or swelling during surgery can be somewhat more severe, and a stuffy ...

Septal deviation correction methods and surgical considerations in turbinoplasty.
Authors: Kang ET Abstract Nasal septoplasty is often required to correct a cosmetic deformity, which is a common reason for patients to present to a plastic surgeon. If nasal septoplasty is insufficient, a residual deformity or nasal obstruction may remain after surgery. Even if the nasal septum is corrected to an appropriate position, nasal congestion could be exacerbated if the turbinate on the other side is not also corrected. Therefore, appropriate treatment is required based on the condition of the turbinates. Herein, we survey recent trends in treatment and review previous research papers on turbinoplasty pro...
