INTRODUCTION Many recent studies concerning autologous fat grafting in the eyelids have been published, mostly consisting of case reports and retrospective case series. However, no study on the overall complication or satisfaction rate associated with the various grafting techniques exists. We performed a comprehensive literature review to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND There is growing interest in the use of autologous fat grafting (AFG) for breast reconstruction. Concerns have been raised regarding its effectiveness and safety. OBJECTIVE The primary objective was to determine the oncological, clinical, aesthetic and functional, patient reported, process and radiological outcomes of AFG. METHODS A protocol(More)
PURPOSE Oral and maxillofacial surgery has expanded rapidly over the past century. Recognition in France has grown since the first face transplantation in the world performed by Professor Bernard Devauchelle. This speciality, which seems to correspond to a narrow scope of services, actually involves oral, plastic, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgeries of(More)
Increasing obesity prevalence and development of bariatric surgery have led to the development of skin re-draping techniques. Several contouring techniques have been described for treating the circumferential excess of the lower trunk. We performed a systematic review to summarize surgical indications, operative techniques, peri-operative management(More)
BACKGROUND The massive weight loss patient may require a circumferential contouring of the lower trunk. OBJECTIVES To summarize the complication rates and explore the possibility of predictive risk factors for complications. METHODS We performed a systematic review using the PubMed and Cochrane databases to identify published articles on the topic.(More)
Xeroderma pigmentosum is a rare and severe photodermatitis without cure. Skin cancers are inevitable and give rise to iterative skin resections often mutilating especially in the face. We report the case of two sisters suffering from severe forms of xeroderma pigmentosum. Given the rapid emergence of multicancerous lesions, we opted for a radical approach(More)
Medial thighplasty, also known as medial thigh lift, is a procedure that has been carried out for five decades. The original "Lewis" technique has undergone many changes, and thereby been rendered widely available to plastic surgeons. Given the increasingly high number of surgical reconstructions after massive weight loss, this technique is now an integral(More)
Surgical treatment of Grade III gynecomastia generally utilizes mastectomy techniques and free transplantation of the nipple–areola complex. Moreover, with rising obesity rates and the development of bariatric surgery, an increasing demand for correctional surgery for pseudogynecomastia has been observed, which is comparable to Grade III gynecomastia in(More)
