This study was to determine the degree of posttraumatic enophthalmos that is detectable by lay observers. In this case-control study, 60 photographs (frontal and oblique angles) of patients from an oculoplastics registry at the authors' institution were reviewed by lay observers. Patients were included if they had between 1 and 5 mm of unilateral enophthalmos, at least 6 months following trauma. They were divided into five groups of 10 and each group was separated by increments of 1 mm. Controls were selected from the same database and had 0 mm difference between each eye...

Earlobe elongation is one of the signs of aging process and surgical correction is warranted for earlobe ptosis. Most of the earlobe reduction techniques result with scars on the anterior or inferior aspect of the earlobe or unnatural appearance. The authors present a modified technique for earlobe reduction and reshaping that results with an acceptable scar set on the natural groove of the anterior surface of the earlobe. Nine healthy female patients were operated for earlobe reduction. The postoperative and preoperative otobasion inferius (O)-subaurale (S) distances of these patients were evaluated...

The use of the Washio retroauricular flap for nasal reconstruction has been infrequently covered in recent literature, particularly concerning the pediatric population. A retrospective study was conducted between 2014 and 2018 and included all pediatric patients who underwent a Washio retroauricular flap procedure for nasal reconstruction operated on by the same surgeon at a referral center for pediatric plastic and maxillofacial surgery. The mean age at the time of the first stage of the Washio procedure was just under 8 years of age (range: 6 years 3 months-8 years 10 months)...

There has been widespread coverage of cosmetic procedures, particularly facial fillers, as minimally invasive options for facial rejuvenation. The authors' objective was to characterize news media's coverage of facial fillers and its role in shaping public perception of these products over the past decade. Public view plays a significant role in policymaking, assisting patient communication, and addressing preconceived notions. Google News was searched for online news coverage related to "facial fillers" from 2008 to 2017...

Treating the lips to increase facial attractiveness and youthfulness is challenging when trying to consider ethnic differences in an increasingly more diverse society. Multiple injection techniques are currently available for treating lip contour and volume, but a validation in the cadaveric model under the aspects of safety has not been performed yet. The injection techniques presented in this study are based on the experience and personal selection of the authors. The authors have assessed, treated, and evaluated for more than 20 years patients from the Middle East and Central Europe...

The continual advent of novel injectables has broadened the potential applications and use for facial aesthetics immensely. There are inherent risks and limitations in predictability associated with any product that is injected freely into human tissues that may possess bioreactivity. This article seeks to elucidate the most commonly feared complications as well as minor complications often overlooked by practitioners. The author also discusses the corresponding appropriate treatments.

Facial antiaging surgery is widely regarded as safe and effective. Current techniques allow us to achieve a balance of restoring youth while minimizing stigmata of surgery to effect a refreshed, natural look. An important component of achieving this goal is to improve the appearance of fine lines and dyschromias which continue to add to the apparent age. Several options exist to improve the appearance of the skin, each with a separate set of indications, advantages, and disadvantages. A medium-depth 35% trichloroacetic acid peel can be safely combined with rejuvenating surgery to enhance patient satisfaction and results with the same downtime and low cost...

As individuals age, distinct anatomical changes of the bone and soft tissue result in the development of rhytids in the perioral region. Most notably, the oral commissures turn downward, creating the appearance of a perpetual frown and adding years to the facial appearance. The purpose of this article is to review the anatomical changes associated with perioral aging as well as discuss potential treatment options for perioral rejuvenation particularly at the level of the oral commissures. Lastly, this article covers the senior author's technique for improving oral commissures and restoring youthful appearance of the perioral region...

The chin is a crucial landmark and mandates careful consideration for facial appearance. Optimal chin appearance requires evaluation and treatment in three dimensions: anteroposterior, transverse, and vertical planes. The optimization of chin deficiencies requires understanding of bony anatomy as well as the relationship of the adjacent facial structures including the lip, teeth, and nose. The practitioner should be familiar with techniques in injection, placement of alloplastic implants, as well bony genioplasty...

After studying this article, the reader should be able to understand the two basic types of implants for aesthetic augmentation of the jaw angles and the aesthetic goals in using them. The operative steps for surgical placement are described with emphasis on avoiding the common complications of jaw angle implants. The indications for the use of standard versus custom jaw angle implants are also described.

An aesthetically pleasing face is centered on strength, symmetry, and balance. A defined, well-projected chin and jawline are crucial to this harmony and recontouring the lower third of the face plays a significant role in plastic surgery. Chin augmentation can be performed with injectables, implantation, or osseous genioplasty. The selection of the best procedure is based on the type and extent of deformity. This article reviews chin augmentation with emphasis on alloplast implantation. The relevant anatomy, patient evaluation, implant indications and limitations, alloplast selection, and surgical techniques in implantation are presented...

The shape of the jawline from the mandibular angle to its most forward point at the chin has a profound effect on an individual's appearance and is an area of concern for many seeking esthetic procedures. Dermal filler injections alone or in combination with other modalities, such as skin tightening energy devices, allow enhancement of the jawline while avoiding the need for surgical procedures. The authors introduce new anatomical zones and nomenclature to enhance safety and outcome when enhancing the jawline...

Enhancement of the lips with facial fillers is currently one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments worldwide. Patients from all age ranges have interest in these treatments, but there is wide variance of their esthetic goals. Practitioners must be aware of the challenges posed by both the youthful and mature lip, which usually requires different approaches and techniques. This article reviews the lip anatomy, aging changes in the lips and perioral region, techniques to produce consistent results, and ways to manage and avoid potential complications...

Aging of the central face is typified by several common characteristics such as generalized volume loss, the appearance of a mental crease and marionette lines, thinning of the lips, and fixed and dynamic rhytids. These result from several processes such as atrophy of adipose and bone, changes in the support of the mandibular septum, and a loss of skin elasticity. There are many methods available for the improvement and rejuvenation of this facial anatomical area. Options include traditional surgical techniques, the application of volume and the use of laser, light, and energy-based devices...

The dynamics of the doctor-patient relationship has been complicated as more patients seem to expect perfection in this age of selfies and Internet postings. The preoperative patient interview is critical to recognize both body language clues and subtle but apparent red flags to avoid rhinoplasty on potentially unhappy patients. This interview should include routine use of a body dysmorphic disorder screening questionnaire since legions of these patients are undiagnosed prior to surgery and few, if any, are ever satisfied with even an excellent surgical result...
