Anatomy Behind the Facial Overfilled Syndrome: The Transverse Facial Septum
BACKGROUND The midface is an area of high demand for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, that is, soft-tissue filler injections. OBJECTIVE To investigate the functional anatomy behind the facial overfilled syndrome observed after soft-tissue filler injections. MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical part of the study enrolled 25 volunteers (12 men and 13 women, Caucasians); the anatomical part included 72 fresh frozen cephalic specimens obtained from 32 male and 40 female body donors. 3D surface scanning procedures were applied to calculate the maximal anterior projection of the midface. RESULTS Upon smiling, the...

Old Friend or New Ally: A Comparison of Follicular Unit Transplantation and Follicular Unit Excision Methods in Hair Transplantation
BACKGROUND Follicular unit excision (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation using strip surgery (FUT) are the dominant graft harvest methods in hair transplantation. The increase in the demand for FUE has reignited the debate of the relative superiority of the 2 methods. OBJECTIVE To present a critical comparison of FUE and FUT graft harvesting techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Search of PubMed, trade publications, and printed references. RESULTS Follicular unit excision and FUT methods provide high-quality grafts, but differ in their scarring patterns of the donor region. Follicular unit transplantation resul...

Suture Lifting: A Review of the Literature and Our Experiences
CONCLUSION Data on suture lifting are limited, with largely descriptive and retrospective case reports available in the literature entailed Oxford Centre evidence-based medicine Levels 2a to 5. Based on the available data, suture lifting appears to be safe and well tolerated, with patient satisfaction similar to or above that reported for other noninvasive lifting and tightening procedures. However, due to the lack of randomized controlled trials, the authors give the suture lifting Strength of Recommendation Level C. Further controlled studies are necessary to determine efficacy, longevity, and safety of this technology...

Combination of 1,064-nm Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet Laser and Steroid Tape Decreases the Total Treatment Time of Hypertrophic Scars: An Analysis of 40 Cases of Cesarean-Section Scars
BACKGROUND The 1,064-nm neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser (Cutera, Inc., Brisbane, CA) and steroid tape (fludroxycortide tape) have been used to treat keloids and hypertrophic scars. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of contact-mode 1,064-nm Nd:YAG laser therapy and steroid tape for hypertrophic cesarean-section scars versus conservative therapy (steroid tape only). MATERIALS AND METHODS A medical record review identified 40 consecutive Japanese patients who had hypertrophic scars (total Japan Scar Workshop Scar Scale [JSS] 2015 evaluation scores of 9 to 12) for more than 1 year after a vertic...

The Evolving Story of Laser Therapeutics for Basal Cell Carcinoma
CONCLUSION Vascular-specific laser therapies show promise in treating low-risk BCC; however, scarring is not an uncommon adverse event. Although only animal studies have been performed to date, laser-activated gold nanoparticle therapy and laser-assisted drug delivery of vismodegib are potential therapies that theoretically confer a more selective approach. Laser modalities demonstrate promise in the treatment of nonaggressive BCC, although long-term studies have yet to be published. (Source: Dermatologic Surgery)
