[Clinical analysis before surgery in facial and neck rejuvenation].

Oct, 2017

The first step to determine a medical or surgical intervention is the clinical exam. The clinical exam is the paramount step to provide a treatment plan that can be modified and individualized accounting the patient preferences. During the consultation for facial rejuvenation, attention should be paid to understand the patient's motivation and expectations. A thorough understanding of the anatomy and the natural history of ageing will facilitate the analysis of the face. Not only the degree of ptosis but also the degree of volume loss will need to be assessed, as well as the influence of the facial muscles, the skin quality, and the different causes of rythids. The comprehensive age-related anatomical changes are often perceived and described as tiredness or sadness. Patients very commonly only point out a single anatomical region. During the consultation, the surgeon should provide the patient with the information of the comprehensive interplay of the different anatomical regions and their individual ageing process. Obtaining a harmonious, natural appearing outcome is the result of excellent surgical skills and applied knowledge. The clinical exam should also find out traps and technical difficulties. Although standardized photographs allow a static evaluation of one's result, video may deliver additional information about the postoperative result, and may contribute to the understanding of the technique used. Spending the additional time by performing a thorough facial analysis and preoperative planning is well-invested time. Having a good understanding of the possible surgical improvements and limitations will be beneficial for both, the patient and the surgeon. Managing the expectations of the patient and careful preoperative planning will increase patient's satisfaction. At the same time, the surgeon will able to critically assess his/her own result and taking pleasure improving their own technique. read more

Reduction of skin closure time without loss of healing quality: a multicenter prospective study in 100 patients comparing the use of Insorb absorbable staples with absorbable thread for dermal suture.

Feb, 2013

The authors report the results of a multicenter prospective study evaluating a novel technology: dermal suture using absorbable staples composed of polylactic and polyglycolic acids. From January to June 2009, 59 dermal sutures were performed with Insorb absorbable staples and 41 with absorbable thread. All patients in the study underwent abdominal dermolipectomy (N = 65) or surgery for breast hypertrophy (N = 35). The purpose of the study was to compare the closure time and healing quality obtained with the 2 methods. Ninety-five patients were reexamined by the surgeon after 1 year of follow-up to assess scar width, suppleness, inflammation, and hypertrophy. The overall results were good and quite similar for the 2 groups. Thus, the use of Insorb staples reduced closure time while ensuring good healing quality. read more
