This article describes our personal approach for facial rejuvenation combining conventional and endoscopic procedures. For a forehead lift we use an endoscopic assisted technique. However, for the face and neck we still prefer the conventional lift. Good candidates for subperiosteal endoscopic midface lifts without skin resection are young or middle-age(More)
We present our experience with using a periareolar mastopexy technique combined with prosthesis implantation to correct mammary ptosis, misplaced areolas, and tuberous hypoplastic breasts. We draw a circle around the areola and deepidermize the skin between them. We enter the glandular tissue and introduce the implant in a submuscular pocket. A purse string(More)
We present our experience with fat injections in the treatment of two cases of facial lipodistrophies. The surgical technique as well as the followup of the two clinical cases are presented in order to evaluate the long post-operative results. Among the different techniques used by us for correcting the soft tissues of the facial contour, this has been by(More)
Asymmetry of the alar cartilages is a common finding in primary rhinoplasty in Caucasian patients. The “delivery” technique provides good exposure of the alar cartilages which allows examination and tailoring in better surgical conditions than those of the “closed” technique and also avoids the “open” nose approach in the majority of rhinoplasty cases.
Since the advent of endoscopic techniques for facial rejuvenation, we have seen an increasing number of patients asking for facial improvement who refuse a conventional full facelift. During the last 3 years, in seeking to obtain good results for this group of patients with minimally invasive techniques, we have been using a subcutaneous approach for(More)
The medial septum/diagonal band region, which participates in learning and memory processes via its cholinergic and GABAergic projection to the hippocampus, is one of the structures affected by beta amyloid (betaA) deposition in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The acute effects of betaA (25-35 and 1-40) on action potential generation and glutamatergic synaptic(More)
Septal deviation is the rule more than the exception in most cases of rhinoplasty. When deviation of the septum precludes a good rhinoplasty's functional and aesthetic results because of impairment of nasal air flow, residual deviation, or inadequate medialitation of the lateral nasal wall, a modified submucous resection of the deviated part is certainly(More)
5th Workshop on Aesthetic Surgery of the Facial Skeleton will be held October 16-18, 1990 in Mexico City, Mexico. The clinical aspects of the most common disharmonies of the facial skeleton, including problems of the orbit, short and long faces, and A-P disproportions of the jaws will be presented. Participants will receive exposure to presurgical(More)
 The prefrontal cortex is involved in many processes, some of which are related to motor activity such eye movements and speech. Experimental data exist that suggest that prefrontal cortical activity occurs in relation to attention, short-term memory, affective discrimination, and complex forms of motor behaviour, i.e. anticipatory preparation, motor(More)
