Introduction: An Overview.
Abstract The use of biologicals for clinical use is rapidly increasing. One of the logical questions is what constitutes a biological? The official definition of biological products by the Food and Drug Administration is "Biological products can be composed of sugars, proteins, or nucleic acids, or a combination of these substances. They may also be living entities, such as cells and tissues. Biologics are made from a variety of natural resources-human, animal, and microorganism-and may be produced by biotechnology methods."

How to Use Oral and Topical Cosmeceuticals to Prevent and Treat Skin Aging.
Abstract Skin aging is caused by DNA damage in nuclei and mitochondria, inflammation, glycation, decreased function of keratinocytes and fibroblasts and breakdown of heparan sulfate, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. Identifying patients at an increased risk of skin aging using a standardized methodology to diagnose the Baumann Skin Type will allow doctors to prescribe an efficacious antiaging skin care regimen. Cosmeceuticals can activate LGR6+ stem cells, improve cell response to signals such as growth factors, stimulate collagen genes, neutralize free radicals, and decrease breakdown of collagen and elast...

Stem Cells in Dermatology and Anti-aging Care of the Skin.
Abstract Multipotent stem cells have paved the way for new applications and deeper understanding in regenerative medicine and the pathophysiology of aging. During skin aging, cumulative photodamage, exhaustion of endogenous stem cell populations, mechanical stress, and increased fibrosis lead to skin with decreased epidermal thickness and compromised dermal integrity. Specific stem cells in the hair follicle create new keratinocytes after activation by defensin peptides, released by neutrophils during wounding. Studies pertaining to defensin peptides' efficacy on skin aging have been published, highlighting their ...

Microneedling with Biologicals: Advantages and Limitations.
Abstract Microneedling is a popular and cost-effective treatment with little down time. The application of topical agents to enhance outcomes is common practice. Microchannels created with nonthermal needling close at 4 hours to 6 hours due to fibrin plugs. Channels created with thermal needling or fractional laser stay open longer and enhance drug or biological uptake more due to the dermal sponge injury pattern that is created. Nonthermal microneedling devices may need Food and Drug Administration clearance, which also notes that dermaceuticals should be considered drugs in many cases. PMID: 30213426 [...

Mesothelial Stem Cells and Stromal Vascular Fraction for Skin Rejuvenation.
Abstract The use of stem cells in regenerative medicine and specifically facial rejuvenation is thought provoking and controversial. Today there is increased emphasis on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, which translates into a need for a reliable source of stem cells in addition to biomaterial scaffolds and cytokine growth factors. Adipose tissue is currently recognized as an accessible and abundant source for adult stem cells. Cellular therapies and tissue engineering are still in their infancy, and additional basic science and preclinical studies are needed before cosmetic and reconstructive surgica...

The Use of Botulinum Toxin for the Treatment of Myofascial Pain in the Masticatory Muscles.
Abstract Although the use of botulinum toxin has been recommended for the management of myofascial pain and dysfunction, the precise mechanism of its action remains undetermined and studies on its effectiveness are equivocal. Moreover, even if such treatment may temporarily relieve the symptoms, it does not address the cause of the problem. Also, its use is not free of potential complications. On this basis, botulinum toxin does not seem to be a logical treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. PMID: 30008341 [PubMed - in process] (Source: The Surgical Clinics of North America)

Surgical Management of Idiopathic Condylar Resorption: Orthognathic Surgery Versus Temporomandibular Total Joint Replacement.
Abstract Young females with retruded and hyperdivergent mandibles, class II openbite malocclusions, and steep occlusal planes with or without TMJ symptoms are at higher risk for Idiopathic Condylar Resorption (ICR). Such patients undergoing orthodontic and /or surgical treatment should be informed of possible relapse due to ICR. Orthognathic Surgery with Total joint replacement or Orthognathic surgery alone may both be acceptable options for management of the facial deformity and the malocclusion that ensues from ICR. Proper patient selection is key to achieving a successful outcome. Current trends and the evidenc...

Breast Reconstruction.
Abstract Breast reconstruction is offered to women undergoing mastectomy or breast conservation, given its safe nature and highly aesthetic reconstructive outcomes. Breast implants are safe, offer flexibility of sizes and projections, and shorter recovery. Autologous flaps allow women to avoid prosthetic devices, using skin and fat to replace breast tissue. The increasing frequency of nipple-sparing mastectomy, autologous fat grafting, use of acellular dermal matrices, and prepectoral prosthetic reconstruction have enhanced aesthetic outcomes. Breast conservation outcomes have been enhanced by immediate oncoplasti...

Sarcomas of the Breast.
Abstract Sarcoma of the breast is extremely rare and differs from epithelial breast carcinomas in staging and treatment. Diagnostic workup includes breast imaging and core biopsy as in breast epithelial carcinoma. Surgical management is often wide local excision in the form of breast conservation if possible for primary breast sarcoma or total mastectomy. Radiation-associated breast angiosarcomas often require total mastectomy with radical excision of skin. Breast sarcomas have a hematogenous spread so lymph node evaluation is not a part of treatment or staging. Local recurrence rates are high; prognosis remains p...

Surgical Anatomy of the Asian Nose.
Abstract Rhinoplasty for Asian noses is markedly different from that for white noses. As rhinoplasty becomes increasingly popular among Asian people, it is important that the rhinoplasty surgeons master relevant anatomy and become skilled in required techniques to serve this segment of population. In this article, distinct characteristics of Asian noses are briefly described. Noses in the Asia population exhibit broad phenotypic variations. There is no typical Asian nose. Therefore, the terms of Asian noses in this article are confined to noses of people from East Asian (eg, Korea, Japan, and China). PMID: 30...

Hybrid Approach for Asian Rhinoplasty: Open Approach Without Transcolumellar Incision.
Abstract The hybrid approach delivers unlimited exposure and technical access, enabling all the procedures of the open approach. In addition, the hybrid approach is flexible in its extent of "dissection/ exposure" It can be more of a classic endonasal or limited access approach in some cases or open structural rhinoplasty and reconstruction in others. The benefits of the nonopen approach deserve equal attention among Asian rhinoplasty surgeons and residents-in-training courses. The difference is not merely that it spares an incision, it is an opportunity to fine-tune minor millimeters of changes in every...

Augmentation Rhinoplasty Using Silicone Implants.
Abstract Augmentation rhinoplasty is one of the most common aesthetic procedures in Asian countries with silicone implant being the most widely used material for augmentation rhinoplasty. Despite potential advantages, use of alloplastic materials in rhinoplasty is often discouraged in Western countries because of concern for possible risk of infection and extrusion of the implant. The collective experience of long-term favorable outcomes in Asia makes the silicone augmentation rhinoplasty a common procedure. Complication rates for silicone implants vary significantly, depending on surgeon experience, surgical tech...

Dorsal Augmentation Using Autogenous Tissues.
Abstract Autogenous materials used for Asian dorsal augmentation are temporal fascia, dermofat, solid block type of costal cartilage, and diced cartilage. The temporal fascia is used for radix augmentation or correction of minor focal depression. Dermofat, solid block costal cartilage, and diced cartilage are recommended for major dorsal augmentation. The vertically oriented folded dermal graft curtails use of the fat component. Diced cartilage wrapped in temporal fascia exhibits a lower resorption rate, and may easily fit into the contour of the dorsum. This graft is thought to have low predictability of final he...

Homologous Tissue for Dorsal Augmentation.
Abstract Homologous graft materials for dorsal augmentation are safe and biocompatible with a low risk of complications. Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) provides natural appearance of the nose and long-term structural integrity without extrusion, showing favorable augmentation results. Tutoplast-processed fascia lata (TPFL) is soft and easy to manipulate, providing a smooth postoperative contour of the nasal dorsum with low risk of infection or extrusion. ADM and TPFL carry low risk of major complications, such as infection, foreign body reaction, and graft extrusion. ADM and TPFL are suitable graft materials that d...

Injection Rhinoplasty Using Filler.
Abstract Rhinoplasty is a commonly performed cosmetic surgery in Asia. Rhinoplasty using filler is preferred because has fewer side effects and shorter down time. The part of external nose between the skin and bone or cartilages consists of 4 layers. To prevent vascular compromise, the injection should be into deep fatty layer, preventing embolization. Filler is usually injected in the order of radix, rhinion, tip, and the supratip area. To minimize asymmetry, the surgeon should always mark the midline on the nasal bridge and perform the procedure without deviating from it. PMID: 30005788 [PubMed - in process...

Septal Extension Graft in Asian Rhinoplasty.
Abstract A septal extension graft (SEG) can control nasal tip projection, shape, and rotation. SEG and dorsal alloplastic implants have predominated in Asian rhinoplasty, leading to iatrogenic complications such as a foreshortened nose and destruction of remaining septum. The lower nasal two-thirds can be enhanced anteriorly and caudally using the septal L-strut extension graft in Asians with relatively small noses. The septal L-strut extension graft is indicated in primary cases in which the bony dorsum is acceptable but the cartilaginous dorsum is relatively hypoplastic, and in secondary cases with an iatrogenic...

Tip Grafting for the Asian Nose.
Abstract Tip surgery during rhinoplasty is particularly difficult in Asians. Tip grafting is the best approach. Conchal cartilage with perichondrium and costal cartilage are powerful grafting materials. The most important grafting techniques are tip-onlay grafting, shield grafting, and multilayer tip grafting. Tip-onlay grafts are useful for dorsal convexity. Shield grafts require sufficient support to prevent bending. Multilayer tip grafts (usually 2 layers) are versatile. Asians vary in cartilage configuration, skin thickness, and aesthetic desires: tip-grafting strategies must be tailored to meet the aesthetic ...

Hump Nose Correction in Asians.
Abstract Nasal hump surgery is frequently regarded as a reduction surgery in most Western rhinoplasty textbooks and referred to as reduction rhinoplasty. Most Asian hump noses have a small hump frequently associated with a low nasal dorsum and underprojection of the nasal tip. Correcting a hump nose in Asians has distinct differences in concept and technique. A small hump and additional need for augmentation of the dorsum and the tip often minimizes the amount of hump removal or obviates resection itself. Characteristics of the Asian hump nose with emphasis on surgical techniques commonly used to obtain reliable r...
