DescriptorName: Practice Guidelines as Topic. Abstract: Techniques for the administration of injectable fillers and neuromodulators for facialaesthetic rejuvenation and enhancement continue to evolve. As the number of physicians with limited experience in providing aesthetic treatments expands, the need for guidance and training from more experienced injectors has become apparent.

Facialplastic surgeons and patients benefit from knowledge about how psychological aspects can influence the outcome of cosmetic surgery. The influence of preoperative self-consciousness of appearance and its effect on benefit after surgery in rhinoplasty patients has not been explored before in other studies.A prospective study was conducted on patients undergoing (septo)rhinoplasty for a combination of cosmetic ...

Many rhinoplasty patients present with a chief complaint of nasal deviation and are unaware of any inherent facial asymmetries; however, recognizing and discussing the interrelation between the deviated nose and facial asymmetry is an important consideration in surgical planning. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether a surgeon's subjective assessment of facial analysis in the setting of nasal deviation correlates with objective anthropometric measurements. In addition, this study sought to further quantify the frequency of facial asymmetry associated with nasal deviation to highlight important anatomical trends for the rhinoplasty surgeon. Finally, this study presents the senior author's (R.J.R.) method of addressing a deviated nose on an asymmetric face. In this study, the authors demonstrated that nasal deviation is closely related to facial asymmetry. Furthermore, the authors demonstrated that objective facial analysis closely correlates to anthropometric facial measurements. In addition, the wide side of the face correlates to the short side of the face and the nose tends to deviate away from the wide side of the face. During surgical correction of the deviated nose in the setting of facial asymmetry, the surgeon's goal should be to obtain nasal symmetry and center the nose on a line between the mid glabella and the mid Cupid's bow. This may reduce the perception of a facial asymmetry, leading to increased patient satisfaction.

BACKGROUND: Cryptotia is a common congenital ear deformity in Asian populations. In cryptotia, a portion of the upper ear is hidden and fixed in a pocket of the skin of the mastoid. Here we describe our method for cryptotia correction by using an ultra-delicate split-thickness skin graft in continuity with a full-thickness skin rotation flap.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: We developed a new method for correcting cryptotia by using an ultra-delicate split-thickness skin graft in continuity with a full-thickness skin rotation flap. Following ear release, the full-thickness skin rotation flap is rotated into the defect, and the donor site is covered with an ultra-delicate split-thickness skin graft raised in continuity with the flap.
RESULTS: All patients exhibited satisfactory release of cryptotia. No cases involved partial or total flap necrosis, and post-operative outcomes using this new technique for cryptotia correction have been more than satisfactory.
CONCLUSIONS: Our method of using an ultra-delicate split-thickness skin graft in continuity with a full-thickness skin rotation flap to correct cryptotia is simple and reliable.
Common side effects during hyaluronic acid filler injections are typically mild and reversible, but several reports of blindness have received attention. The present study focused on orbital symptoms combined with blindness, aiming to classify affected patients and predict their disease course and prognosis. From September of 2012 to August of 2015, nine patients with vision loss after filler injection were retrospectively reviewed. Ptosis, ophthalmoplegia, and enophthalmos were recorded over a 6-month follow-up, and patients were classified into four types according to periocular symptom manifestation. Two patients were categorized as type I (blindness without ptosis or ophthalmoplegia), two patients as type II (blindness and ptosis without ophthalmoplegia), two patients as type III (blindness and ophthalmoplegia without ptosis), and three patients as type IV (blindness with ptosis and ophthalmoplegia). The present study includes previously unpublished information about orbital symptom manifestations and prognosis combined with blindness caused by retinal artery occlusion after cosmetic filler injection.

... of a three-part series addresses techniques and recommendations for aesthetic treatment of the lower face. The lower face is considered an advanced area for facialaesthetic treatment. In this region, soft-tissue fillers play a more important role than neuromodulators and should be used first to provide structure and support before neuromodulators are considered for treatment of dynamic lines.
