The authors propose a combined approach for the treatment of orbito-palpebral haemangiomas. Two cases are presented and discussed. Pre-operative evaluation included coronal, axial, and sagittal CT scans as well as a selective arteriogram. These studies assisted the planning of the surgical approach. An intracranial/extracranial surgical approach was used(More)
Experience with the surgical management of cranio-orbital neurofibromatosis in 14 patients is reported (age range, 6-40 years). The skeletal abnormality of the orbit that occurs in a small proportion (less than 1%) of patients with neurofibromatosis is, in essence, the absence of the membranous portions of the sphenoid and the adjacent bone forming the(More)
BACKGROUND Graves' ophthalmopathy affects orbital contents and eyelids. Protrusion of the globe can also be the result of myopia and/or an abnormal orbit shape, which is responsible for nonsyndromic exorbitism. It is necessary to recognize these components of protrusion to treat patients adequately. The authors present a surgical strategy for treatment of(More)
BACKGROUND Neurofibromatosis type 1 manifests itself by the development of plexiform neurofibromas, with craniofacial deformities caused by bone alterations and soft-tissue infiltration. The medical treatment of this disease is disappointing, and the surgical management of these deformities calls for aggressive procedures. There is a strong risk of(More)
Treatment of panfacial burns is a difficult challenge for the plastic surgeon. Although excision-grafting procedures can be used to provide sufficient skin of sufficient quality, inevitable skin retraction will, in the long run, produce the typical "burned face" aspect (retraction of the periorificial zones, smoothing out of the main skin folds). The(More)
Paul Tessier started the great adventure of sculpturing the malformed face more than 30 years ago. Key procedures such as subperiosteal dissection and lifting of the facial mask, bone grafting from a cranial site of harvest, and lateral canthopexies have been utilized and have withstood the trial of time in thousands of patients. The mask lift with facial(More)
Suzanne Noël, a pioneer of aesthetic surgery in Europe, first published her results with cosmetic blepharoplasty in 1926, in a book entitled: "The social role of aesthetic surgery". Paul Tessier further expanded the range and surgical possibilities of blepharoplasty by incorporating lateral canthopexies and underlying the importance of the craniofacial(More)
