Abstract:

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.

Abstract:

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.

Abstract:

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.

Abstract:

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

Abstract:

The last decades have seen new priorities in treatment of a flabby, ageing face towards minimally invasive aesthetic surgery, to be accompanied and followed by the requirements to perform such interventions with the maximally reduced health hazards, with inconsiderable injury, without cuts and, respectively, to be followed by no resulting scars, as well as a short postoperative period. Many methods complying with these requirements have been proposed. One of them is the so-called APTOS method, which has received wide recognition amongst surgeons and dermatologists in more than 50 countries. These various methods can be associated to improve face réjunévation simultaneously or according to a planed strategy. We propose a new reviewing presentation, including new absorbable APTOS threads: Light Lift, Excellence and Nano. After having explained the technology of the threads, we will discuss the good patient indication, the criteria which determine the choice of the threads and methods for each type of patient. There are many techniques and we will present them with videos. Then, we will discuss the results, unsatisfactory outcomes obtained and complications encountered, as well as how to improve the cosmetic outcomes to be obtained. To conclude, we will propose a strategy for the long-term treatment of the neck and the face, preventing surgical management of the ageing process. The report is based on our experience gained in applying the Aptos barbed threads devised by the authors and using the respective methods for treatment of more than 100,000 patients suffering from facial soft-tissue ptosis, manifested wrinkles and folds. Along with it, we discuss a new method of facial thread lifting the so-called APTOS Light Lift, Excellence, and Nano.

Abstract:

The sunscreen agent accounts for 3% of the market value of cosmetics market in Japan (2015) and the shipment volume of 5,000 t is on the rise. In addition to skin color correction and skin care, addition of safety, whitening and anti-aging due to the effect of vitiligo problems, there is a demand for value. Normally, as a sunscreen agent, ultraviolet light scattering agent of titanium oxide or zinc oxide is used in combination with an organic ultraviolet ray absorbing agent. However, it reaches the dermal layer of the skin, and is known for skin aging, melanin pigmentation and active oxygen generation etc. There are few absorbents that can completely absorb light in the range of UVA (320-400 nm) wavelength area. So far, we have been aiming at practical application of ultraviolet absorption by a composite material of amino acid derivative Schiff base metal complex and titanium oxide. In this time, zinc (II) complexes were employed. Structural and chemical studies on the complexes will be presented. In addition, molecular design process using the related copper (II) complexes will be also mentioned in the keynote lecture.

Abstract:

Statement of the Problem: The acid mantle of the skin has a pH of about 5.5, which is slightly acidic. This protects the skin against bacteria, fungi and dryness. Therefore, skin-friendly (so-called pH skin-neutral) detergents, shampoos and shower gels have a slightly acidic pH. Soaps and low-cost cleaning products however, are often alkaline (pH above 8), which can lead to skin irritation in both infants and dermatitis patients. Alkaline washing agents used for laundry with pH values above 10.0 can also cause skin irritation if clothes are not rinsed properly or if too much washing agent is used. Furthermore, wound pH is a relevant parameter for monitoring progress of wound healing. The purpose of this work was to develop a simple method to detect undesirable changes in pH via color changes from green to red. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: Textiles and nonwovens were covalently functionalized with indicator dyes that change color when pH causes skin irritation or is too high for proper wound healing. The colored nonwoven is not cytotoxic and all textiles were certified by OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, class I. Findings: Indicator washcloths show a visible and fully reversible color change from green (ideal pH) to red (irritating washing solution). Indicator labels show a color change when clothes contain residual amounts of alkaline washing agents. Indicator cotton swabs show a color change to red when wound treatment may be necessary. The color changes can be interpreted by the naked eye as well as by an optical color measurement device. Conclusion & Significance: Smart indicator textiles enable the determination of pH in washing agents, on the skin, and in wounds. The convenient format and easy interpretation make indicator textiles and nonwovens helpful for assisted living, consumer care and medical diagnostics.

Abstract:

Numerous disorders can cause follicular damage, which can result in hair thinning and loss on the scalp, as well as the face, including the eyelashes and eyebrows. Some medications, such as chemotherapy, often have the same effect, and can frequently be permanent. Hair loss, not only on the scalp, but in the eyebrow/eyelash region can be due to hormonal changes, decreased thyroid function, nutrient deficits, emotional trauma or stress, and commonly occurs during the natural aging process. Complete hair loss, and even mild thinning, can have a variety of psychological effects such as anxiety, depression and even social withdrawal. Depending on etiology, certain pharmaceutical approaches, namely Minoxidil or steroids, in conjunction with nutritional supplementation and/ or laser therapies, for example, have proven helpful for some patients who are losing scalp hair. For those with follicular damage to the eyebrows and eyelashes, products containing Bimatoprost are becoming increasingly more popular. While some patients may experience regrowth and even lengthening of their eyelashes, most report no efficacy in the regrowth of their eyebrows. For patients whose efforts to mitigate hair loss have been unsuccessful, hair transplants may be an option for the scalp or the eyebrow area. In addition to the aforementioned treatment modalities, there is also an alternative or adjunct procedure that can be done with little to no side effects, and relatively no down time: Micropigmentation. This technique involves the use of tiny needles situated closely together, and along with expertly matched and placed pigments, can create the look of natural eyebrows. There are limitations for large areas of hair loss on the scalp, though advanced practice procedures not only help reduce the appearance of bald patches or receding hairlines, micropigmentation is also very effective for those suffering from trichotillomania, as it can completely restore the look of hairs in the eyebrows and scalp that the patient has previously pulled out from those areas. It is also recommended for the illusion and restoration of natural appearing eyebrows in cases of follicular damage, and to darken the lid at the base of the eyelashes. Micropigmentation can also be used to camouflage and aesthetically correct scars after the surgical repair of a buccal hemangioma, cleft lip, and hypopigmentation from scarring, UV ray sun damage, for areola color restoration after mastectomy, and on the grafted skin of a burn survivor.

Abstract:

In the field of plastic surgery liposuction succeeded in becoming the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedure during the last decade in both man and women. First liposuction was described with curettage technique and then dry, wet and super wet techniques performed as suction assisted liposuction (SAL). The first aim with liposuction is removing excess fat and making body smaller. On the otherhand, last ten years everything was changed and liposuction techniques are different due to understanding fat anatomy under the skin. To get better results all innovative plastic surgeons need more superficial liposuction with less complications, so more dynamic liposuction or liposculpture techniques was essential. When we want to get shaping on the body we should do more superficial liposuction. Third generation ultrasound energy (Vaser) is giving 36 Khz sound energy per second and it helps to emulsifying fat without any damage to surrounding tissues. Vaser (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) has provided liposculpture techniques to the superficial fat layers and this technique is more applicable for abdominal etching with less complication. Vaser is currently the gold standard for use in abdominal etching. Vaser Hi - def surgeries provide less complication and more successful results. The technique decision depended on the BMI (it must be <28), degree of skin excess, skin elasticity, patient's sportive history. Between December 2010- August 2016, 221 patients have undergone Vaser liposuction among which 89 cases were male and 132 cases were female. In this case abdominal Vaser hi def procedure was performed in the field of cosmetic surgery to 43 Male patients by same surgeon. All patients were satisfied with aesthetic results of their Vaser Hi-Def within the time of follow-up. Seroma rates were 8%, unsatisfied definition rates were 1% due to patient selection, hematoma rates were 1%, skin necrosis did not occur.

Abstract:

There are several techniques to perform breast lift and all have the same basic principles: Preserve anatomy and physiology of the breast, avoid nipple necrosis, maintain sensibility of the nipple, do not interfere with lactation or the ability to breast-feed, have a good shape and size, smaller scars and good final appearance. The author describes a technique with only an areola-vertical final scar with indications in almost all types of ptotic breasts and all grades of ptosis. It’s a versatile technique with no conventional measurements or draws. He makes the pre-op marking in the right breast, and one of the key point being the final position of the nipple and the other where finishing the vertical at the inframammary fold. All the other draw/markings are made by the handling of the breast. After marking the right breast by hand, measurements are taken and the other breast is marked to achieve a good symmetry. He performs all the cases under local tumescent anesthesia with oral and IV sedation. One of the advantages of this technique is less risk of hypertrophic or colloid scaring with few limitations in dressing any type of clothes. This technique doesn’t interfere with normal breast anatomy and physiology and it’s less traumatic, less oedema, less painful and no bleeding. Patients make a quicker recovery and can do many things in few days. Tumescent local anesthesia – about 200 cc of the modified Klein’s formula are infiltrated in both breasts. Local anesthesia is performed in the line incision, surgical technique/ procedure - De-epithelization of the area from the upper part of the areola to the lower part of the areola (Schwarmann’s maneuver). Creating the pocket for the implant undermining under the gland and above the aponeurosis of the pectoralis major. Placement of cohesive gel silicone implant, round shape, low, medium or high profile according to the type of the breast (Eurosilicone). Closure is made in layers to avoid tension in the final wound. No drain is used routinely and all patients have a complete clinical history, pre-op routine examinations plus mammography and/or mammary echography

Abstract:

Introduction: Tissue release for cellulite has been practiced for decades with limited success. In October 2016 we started our experience with a novel procedure that represent the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive treatment clinically proven to improve the cellulite blemishes for nearly four years in only one session.
Materials & Methods: I report my one year of personal experience. The procedure is performed in a practice by a qualified physician and the treatment takes maximum 45 minutes. Cellulite dimples are marked and the device is applied to stretch and stabilize tissue in a vacuum chamber, while local anesthesia is delivered. Then, a precise minimally-invasive subcutaneous release of the connective bands (TS-GS: stabilized-guided subcision) is performed with a microblade, without cuts or incisions. After treatment, a light
compression is applied and patients can go about immediately to their daily life.
Results: The procedure treats the primary structural cause of cellulite blemishes, represented by the connective bands crossing throughout fat in thighs and buttocks. The most common side effects reported by patients were soreness and bruising.
Conclusions: This revolutionary FDA-cleared procedure for the cellulite puckering, combines a proven approach with an innovative technology to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite blemishes.

Abstract:

In this talk, I will explore the increased use of fillers for aesthetic rejuvenation of the face that have been mirrored by innovation of different filler agents, increased patient demand, and also increased awareness of filler complications. It is, therefore, essential that aesthetic providers understand the different aspects of facial anatomy to improve both aesthetic outcomes, as well as patient satisfaction. I will discuss facial anatomy via aesthetic subunit with special attention to vasculature, soft tissue compartments (including ligamentous boundaries and fat compartments), fascial planes, and bony landmarks to help guide physicians/providers toward safer and improved outcomes. I will utilize intra op surgical photographs and landmark anatomical articles to illustrate the anatomical points.

Abstract:

Statement of the Problem: Melasma is an acquired symmetrical hypermelanosis with recurrence and resistance to treatment modaleties. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) may serve as a source of growth factors reducing the pigmentation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of PRP as a new treatment in melasma and role of intense pulsed light (IPL) as an activator for PRP. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: Twenty female patients with facial melasma were treated with PRP combined with IPL in one side of the face and PRP only on the other. All cases were assessed by MASI score, modified MASI, photos before and after and patient and physician satisfaction scoring. There was no statistically significant difference (p-value >0.05) between study groups regarding patient and physician satisfaction. Most results reported moderate (25-50%) physician and patient satisfaction. The reduction in MASI score was 33.13% and modified MASI score of group1 showed 23.85% improvement and in group2 was 22.86%. Conclusion & Significance: PRP is considered moderately effective treatment for melasma. We don’t advise to follow injection of PRP by IPL as it didn’t improve the results. However, further studies are required.

Abstract:

Acne is very common in skin outpatient department and scars are seen in almost 95% of cases. As acne scars are causing significant impact on psychosocial wellbeing of an individual and hampering day to day routine activities and creating low self-esteem. Though, there are numerous modalities of treatment (like chemical peels, dermabrasion, derma-roller etc.) but researchers are still trying for a single modality to treat the complications due to its variety in shape and depth and reduce the duration of treatment. As autologous PRP has already shown tremendous potential in field of dermatology in enhancing wound healing and fractional CO2 is being considered to have good approach for acne scarring. So, planned of combining the two to enhance the treatment modality in acne scars and decrease the duration and its psychosocial impact. The main objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of a combined modality in terms of clinical improvement and reduced treatment duration
