An Evaluation of Safety and Patient Outcomes for Hand Surgery following Prior Breast Cancer Treatment: Establishing New Recommendations in Lymphedema.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on the available evidence, there is no increased risk of complications for elective hand surgery in patients with prior breast cancer treatment. Breast cancer patients with preexisting ipsilateral lymphedema carry slightly increased risk of postoperative infection and worsening lymphedema. It is the authors' opinion and recommendation that elective hand surgery with a tourniquet is not a contradiction in patients who have received previous breast cancer treatments.

Migraine Surgery at the Frontal Trigger Site: An Analysis of Intraoperative Anatomy.

CONCLUSIONS: The intraoperative anatomy and cause of nerve compression at the frontal trigger site vary greatly among patients. The authors report a supraorbital nerve foramen prevalence of 50.3 percent, which is greater than in previous cadaver studies of the general population. Lastly, the presence of pain at a specific site is associated with macroscopic nerve compression.

Analysis of #PlasticSurgery in Europe: An Opportunity for Education and Leadership.

CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates the low participation of plastic surgeons and academic institutions in social media (especially for education) in four of the major world languages. Social media should be considered in Europe as an opportunity to increase leadership, improve education, and spread knowledge of plastic surgery by board-certified plastic surgeons.

Pulsed and Fractionated Techniques for Helium Plasma Energy Skin Resurfacing.

Authors: Gentile RD, McCoy JD
Energy-based skin rejuvenation has, like other forms of aesthetic treatments, the capability of achieving desirable end results. These end results must be balanced with the degree and duration of morbidity, which affect recovery from treatment. Renuvion skin resurfacing protocols include a free hand approach and we describe our preferred approach of pulsing and fractionating the helium plasma resurfacing energy.

Microfat and Lipoconcentrate for the Treatment of Facial Scars.

Authors: Pallua N, Kim BS
Fat grafting is as a unique regenerative filler with soluble factors and progenitor cells that may remodel scar tissue in an easy yet effective way. A combination of microfat grafting, lipococoncentrate injection, scar subcision, and platelet-rich plasma supplementation may be used to treat the majority of facial scars. The lipoconcentrate technique condenses the lipoaspirate to a progenitor cell-rich fluid of low volume by a combination of centrifugation and emulsification steps. In this article, the authors' methods for scar treatment by fat grafting are discussed. Choice of technique for facial scars, precise indications, and contraindications are introduced.

Evaluation of facial appearance in patients with repaired cleft lip and palate: comparing the assessment of laypeople and healthcare professionals.

Conclusion: Differences in perception exist between healthcare professionals and laypeople. The discrepancies between the professional groups could be attributed to different treatment modalities and protocols.
