To objectively and quantitatively evaluate the degree of perceived age change and improvement in attractiveness following aesthetic facial surgical procedures, Zimm et al performed a prospective evaluation by independent raters of preoperative and postoperative photographs of 49 consecutive patients who underwent aesthetic facial surgery.
Kim et al use videos of 5 symmetrical facial movements to determine the participants’ detection threshold of side-to-side facial movement timing asymmetry and measure its effect on perceived movement naturalness.
Choi et al investigate and compare the factors affecting the ideal location of the tip of the nose using standard photographic measurements.
Siwani and Friedman compare differences in cosmetic neck and face changes generated by 3 different face-lift techniques to establish how different orientations of tension vectors applied during face-lift surgery achieve different structural changes to various key points across the face.
To evaluate the technical details, aesthetic results, and complications of otoplasties involving cartilage splitting without stitches, Obadia et al conducted a retrospective review of patients operated on between January 2004 and September 2010 by the same senior surgeon. Postoperative results were assessed by 3 plastic surgeons and 3 lay observers.
Sajan and colleagues performed a retrospective review of pediatric patients who underwent pulsed-dye laser therapy for treatment of hemangiomas of infancy and port-wine stains.
Park and colleagues present their experience in lengthening the short nose in Asians and report the surgical results.
Li and coauthors examine the disease mechanisms involved in keloid lesions in the hopes of identifying therapeutic options.
Bozzato et al report their experience with the use of preoperative ultrasonographic examinations for quality analysis of costal cartilage. Ultrasonographic imaging of the anterior rib cage was performed before 83 rhinoplasties requiring costal cartilage grafting. Cartilage volume, quality, sex-specific calcification patterns, and the location of hidden calcification islands within viable cartilage were recorded.
