Anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a very rare but life-threatening complication that has largely been demonstrated to be associated with breast implants (BIA-ALCL). Patients are at risk of BIA-ALCL with the placement of breast implants for either cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, with the highest risks associated with textured breast implants. In the past decade, there have been an increasing number of publications focused on BIA-ALCL, but there has yet to be a reported case outside of the breast...

BACKGROUND: Sub-SMAS rhytidectomy techniques are considered to have a higher complication profile, especially for facial nerve injury, when compared to less invasive SMAS techniques. This results in surgeons avoiding sub-SMAS dissection. OBJECTIVE: Aggregate and summarize data on complications among different SMAS facelift techniques. METHODS: A broad systematic search was performed. All included studies: (1) described a SMAS facelifting technique categorized as SMAS plication, SMASectomy/imbrication, SMAS flap, high lateral SMAS flap, deep plane, and composite; and (2) reported the number of postoperative complications in participants...

BACKGROUND: Buccal fat pad excision is a procedure in which the fat pad is extracted in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. OBJECTIVES: To describe an alternative technique that utilizes hydrodissection as a means to extract the buccal fat pad. METHODS: This is a controlled, prospective, randomized clinical study with two groups. Group A (n=27) underwent buccal fat pad excision with hydrodissection, and 15 ml of a vasoconstricting anesthetic solution was injected into the buccal fat pad...

Mixed reality, a blending of the physical and digital worlds, can enhance the surgical experience, leading to greater precision, efficiency and improved outcomes. Various studies across different disciplines have reported encouraging results using mixed reality technologies, such as augmented and virtual reality. To provide a better understanding of the applications and limitations of this technology in plastic surgery, we performed a systematic review of the literature in accordance with PRISMA guidelines...

Background: The main challenge of periocular fat grafting is the risk of contour irregularities, especially in the lower eyelid. Injection of diluted fat can decrease the likelihood of poor contour. Objectives: The authors developed a simple method of periocular fat grafting in which the fat was harvested through unconventional cannulas and diluted before the injection to avoid the risk of contour irregularities. Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on 200 patients who underwent fat grafting to the periocular region...

Multiple patientreported outcome measures (PROMs) are available to assess patient satisfaction after rhinoplasty. These selfassessment measures can be divided into 3 categories: measures for functional outcomes, aesthetic outcomes, and both. Although Barone et al have discussed this classification, a recently developed scale was not featured. We performed a PubMed search for publications in English that described patient satisfaction post-rhinoplasty, using PROMs that facilitate both functional and aesthetic selfassessment...

Background: During the course of performing abdominoplasties, a plastic surgeon will encounter a certain body habitus characterized by a thick, tethered, and excessively redundant upper skin flap. Often these patients also demonstrate diffuse and substantial fascial laxity. One approach to this problem involves direct thinning and release of the flap by resection of the sub-Scarpa's fat pad. In theory, this resection should be safe from a flap perfusion standpoint. However, the safety of the sub-Scarpa's resection has not been completely documented...

Background: The facial artery is the main blood vessel supplying the anterior face and an understanding of its anatomy is crucial in facial reconstruction and aesthetic procedures. Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the many anatomical features of the facial artery using a multidimensional approach. Methods: Head and neck computed tomographic angiographies of 131 patients (255 facial arteries) with good image quality were evaluated...

Background: A simple and reproducible surgical technique for large volume fat grafting. Objectives: The authors share their 7-year experience with their large volume fat transfer technique called power-assisted liposuction lipofilling (PALL). Methods: our hundred and seventeen patients who underwent PALL related surgeries involving the breast and buttock were evaluated in a retrospective study. Liposculpting and fat harvesting were performed with power-assisted liposuction...

Background: Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is an uncommon T-cell lymphoma associated with textured-surface breast implants. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) polymorphisms have been described with other forms of lymphoma, but have not been described for BIA-ALCL. Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate HLA polymorphisms in BIA-ALCL patients. Methods: We prospectively evaluated HLA alleles in patients with BIA-ALCL...

Background: Providing residents with comprehensive training in aesthetic surgery has proven challenging. Resident aesthetic clinics propose an educational value to trainees while providing successful patient outcomes. Objectives: This study systematically reviewed the available literature regarding resident aesthetic clinic outcomes to determine the efficacy of the clinic in resident training, surgical results, and patient satisfaction. Methods: An electronic database search was performed to identify literature reporting on resident aesthetic clinics...
