INTRODUCTION: Hair transplantation surgery requires the efficient completion of hair follicles and thus appropriate hair implantation needles. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of self-made hair implantation needles using injection needles and evaluate the speed of different hair implantation methods. METHODS: Four patients were randomly assigned to four groups. A gem knife pre-punching planting method was used for the patient in Group A, while Group B received immediate implantation after punching with ordinary injection needles, Group C was treated with synchronized punching and planting using hair implanters, and Group D was treated with a self-made hair implantation needle...

BACKGROUND: Alar base is the basal part where the two sides of the nose and the upper lip are connected. Alar base depression affects the overall facial contour by making the nasolabial folds deepen, the nasolabial angle smaller, the center of the face flat, etc. Despite the rapid development of rhinoplasty, controversy still exists regarding the treatment of alar base depression. This systematic review aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two prevalent techniques-diced autologous cartilage and mass cartilage-for addressing alar base depression...

BACKGROUND: Double-eyelid blepharoplasty was the most prevailing cosmetic procedures in China. To reduce the visible scar and unnatural crease after the removal of the OOM in the traditional full-incision double-eyelid technique. This research tried to introduce and promote the orbicularis oculi muscle sparing full-incision double-eyelid blepharoplasty with more conservative resection of upper eyelid soft tissue. METHODS: The orbicularis oculi muscle sparing full-incision double-eyelid blepharoplasty was operated and evaluated in 227 patients (454 eyes), and the esthetic results, the satisfaction of patients and complications were scored and analyzed at 6-12 months postoperative...

BACKGROUND: Nasolabial fold formation is increasingly becoming a cause of concern for many people. However, no network meta-analysis has compared the efficacy of different fillers in treating nasolabial folds. This network meta-analysis simultaneously compared the efficacy and safety of various fillers. METHODS: We included randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that used fillers to treat nasolabial folds. We extracted data of Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale (WSRS), Global Esthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS, investigator) scores, GAIS scores (self-reported) and adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Periorbital aging is characterized by dermatochalasis, lateral hooding and malformation of multiple eyelid creases. Rejuvenation of periorbital region is of great concern in aging Asians, especially for the females. However, the conventional subbrow blepharoplasty was indicated for mild or moderate skin laxity. For severe laxity, double-eyelid incision is necessarily to be involved. This study aims to improve the severe upper eyelid dermatochalasis through an extended subbrow single-incision approach with desirable outcomes...

BACKGROUND: As a new-generation collagen stimulator, polycaprolactone (PCL) containing filler has been extensively applied in facial dermal fillers and other medical aesthetic fields. However, inadvertent intravascular injection of PCL may result in complications such as tissue edema, flap necrosis, and even blindness. To date, there is no effective treatment for PCL-induced intravascular embolism. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to identify a viable resolution for the embolism resulting from intravascular administration of PCL-containing fillers...

BACKGROUND: Chat generative pre-trained transformer (ChatGPT) is a publicly available extensive artificial intelligence (AI) language model that leverages deep learning to generate text that mimics human conversations. In this study, the performance of ChatGPT was assessed by offering insightful and precise answers to a series of fictional questions and emulating a preliminary consultation on blepharoplasty. METHODS: ChatGPT was posed with questions derived from a blepharoplasty checklist provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons...

BACKGROUND: Botulinum toxin alone is unable to sufficiently reduce the muscle in cases of severe static glabellar lines due to the folded skin and dermal breakdown that frequently accompany these conditions. Augmentation of the soft tissue and removal of folded skin at the same time is the final solution. To simultaneously resolve interbrow skin laxity and replenish tissue volume, we present for the first time the method of glabellar lines excision combined with FDFG. METHODS: This retrospective study involved 23 patients with moderate-to-severe static glabellar lines underwent resection and/or free dermal fat grafting (FDFG) from June 2022 to June 2023...

BACKGROUND: Levator aponeurectomy is a common operation for mild to moderate blepharoptosis. The accuracy of ptosis correction relied on intraoperative judgement when patients were under local anesthesia. For patients who must receive the operation under general anesthesia, it would be an issue to determine how much length of levator aponeurosis to shorten. To solve this issue, we collected data from patients who underwent the operation under local anesthesia and concluded an algorithm...
