The increasing demand for cosmetic facial rejuvenation with minimal risk and no downtime has led a surge in minimally invasive procedures. However, injection of both neuromodulators and fillers may result in bruising even in experienced injectors. The AccuVein bruise prevention device (AccuVein Inc., Huntington, NY) helps minimize bruising following injectable treatments by visualizing veins that otherwise cannot be seen by the naked eye. The hand-held 9.7 ounce vein illuminator projects a steady and safe infrared beam onto the skin. The light is absorbed by hemoglobin and reflected by surrounding tissue. The competing VeinViewer (Christie Medical Holdings, Inc., Memphis, TN) appears to represent a feasible alternative for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation, while the Veinlite vein finder (Translite LLC, Sugarland, TX) is more suitable for venipuncture mostly due to its smaller area of illumination. The Site-Rite Prevue Ultrasound System (C. R. Bard Inc., Murray Hill, NJ) is also more suitable for peripheral venous access.  We use the AccuVein device mostly for neuromodulator treatment in the lateral canthal region and for filler injection in the tear trough, nasolabial folds and lips. In summary, both Accuvein and VeinViewer appear to be useful accessories for cosmetic facial injections. In conclusion, vein illumination will likely become a new standard of care for minimally invasive rejuvenation.

Having completed general practice training in the UK Dr Helena Rosengren immigrated to Australia in 1994. She has worked as an accomplished skin cancer doctor in Townsville for more than a decade establishing the Skin Repair Skin Cancer Clinic in 2009. As a fellow of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia, she is sent many referrals from fellow GPs undertaking complex skin cancer surgery with meticulous attention to cosmetic results. Passionate about teaching and research, Dr Rosengren is a senior lecturer at James Cook University, has published several research papers in medical journals and teaches at skin cancer workshops for GPs all over Australia.



Background: With limited published research studying the effect of antibiotic prophylaxis on surgical site infection (SSI) in dermatologic surgery there is no consensus for its use in higher risk cases. Objective: The aim of this prospective double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled trial was to determine whether a single oral pre-operative antibiotic dose would significantly reduce SSI following flap and graft dermatologic closures on the nose and ear. Methods: 154 eligible participants in a primary care skin cancer clinic in North Queensland, Australia were randomized to 2g oral cephalexin or placebo 40-60 minutes prior to skin incision. Results: Overall 8/69 (11.6%) controls and 1/73 (1.4%) in the intervention group developed SSI (P=0.015; absolute SSI reduction 10.2%; NNT for benefit 9.8, 95% CI 5.5, 45.5).  In males 7/ 44 controls 0/33 in the intervention group developed SSI (P=0.018; absolute SSI reduction 15.9%; NNT for benefit 6.3, 95% CI 3.8, 19.2).   SSI was much lower in female controls (1/25) and antibiotic prophylaxis did not further reduce this (P=1.0).  There was no difference between the study groups in adverse symptoms attributable to high dose antibiotic administration (P=0.871) Conclusion: A single oral 2g dose of cephalexin given before complex skin closure on the nose and ear reduced SSI.

The gluteal region is an important aesthetic symbol of the body and represents a major component of sexual attraction. Buttocks descent and atrophy are common presenting complaints for patients seeking elective improvement of their body. Gluteal surgery has a recent history of technique evolution, with various reported methods and refinements, including autologous tissue and alloplastic materials. It has been gaining popularity, and an exponential growth in buttocks procedures has been recorded in the recent years. Modern comprehensive gluteal rejuvenation must address both gluteal atrophy and ptosis. Gluteal implants can give a rounded and enhanced appearance to the buttocks while lifting in the form of excisional techniques can address the ptosis. These techniques may be applied together in one surgical procedure or performed in a staged sequence. This report describes the combination of lifting and enhancement techniques to achieve improvement in the gluteal region. An algorithm, to assist with decision making, based on the gluteal deformity encountered, is also proposed. Two separate clinical examples are described, a patient with gluteal implants with synchronous buttocks lift and a patient with pursestring gluteoplasty followed by gluteal implants at a later time. The presented algorithm will enhance the participants’ decision making process when encountering gluteal deformities. The audience will learn new and innovative approaches to gluteal augmentation through autologous and alloplastic techniques. With improved decision making ability, the audience will be positioned to offer cutting edge gluteal surgery in a safe and effective manner.

Large volume fat transfer for gluteal augmentation can be associated with long operative times and surgeon fatigue. Numerous modifications have been introduced to obtain fat in a more efficient method while improving fat graft take. A novel method for fat harvest involves Tissue Liquefaction Liposuction (Hydrasolve®). This technique allows for fat transfer that is removed with an atraumatic technique. Using this vehicle, we aim to show that large volumes of fat can be harvested and transferred safely, reliably, and with consistent results. Autologous gluteal augmentation with fat transfer is a commonly performed procedure. Hydrasolve® liposuction is a novel technique for fat harvesting that utilizes liquefaction of the fatty tissue. This results in minimal trauma both to the fat cells and surrounding tissues. Large volumes of fat may be harvested and transferred safely. We have seen excellent results with high rates of patient satisfaction, stable graft take, and minimal complications. This presents a novel technique for fat harvesting that utilizes tissue liquefaction. This technique allows the surgeon to rapidly remove fat while producing a bloodless, uniform layer of fat for grafting in a closed system. This technique for fat grafting improves the process for the surgeon and the outcome for the patient
