Holger G. Gassner, MD, and colleagues describe their approach to the nasal tip and lateral crus of the lower lateral cartilage, which they term the “endonasal complete release approach.” The authors precisely describe their technique and its application to various nasal tip deformities. A retrospective review of 100 consecutive patients undergoing septorhinoplasty in which the authors' technique was used is included, with particular emphasis on patient satisfaction. The authors discuss the advantages and disadvantages of their technique and potential limitations.

Dario Bertossi, MD, and colleagues report their experience using fresh-frozen human bone allografts as interpositional grafts during sliding genioplasty in 10 patients. The authors present preoperative and postoperative cephalograms and computed tomographic scans in 10 patients and were able to obtain bone biopsy specimens to investigate integration in 1 patient. The authors' technique is described, compared, and contrasted with other methods of sliding genioplasty.

Jess Pirschman, MD, and colleagues conducted a retrospective medical chart review of all patients undergoing upper and/or lower blepharoplasty over a 10-year period to determine the incidence of dry eye following upper and/or lower blepharoplasty. Multiple risk factors for the development of dry eye following blepharoplasty are identified. The authors also report the incidence of chemosis following blepharoplasty and discuss possible causative factors.

Shay I. Duvedani, MD, and colleagues performed a retrospective review of 3 different approaches to the creation of a postauricular sulcus in microtia reconstruction in 443 consecutive patients over a 14-year period. Techniques included in the study included the temporal parietal fascial flap, anteriorly based mastoid fascial flap, and a superficial musculoaponeurotic system flap. The authors measured the projection of the reconstructed ear achieved with each technique. The advantages and disadvantages of each technique are discussed, along with the authors' recommendations for the optimal technique.
