We report a 10-year experience with 123 patients who had the surgical treatment for drooling originally described by Wilkie. All have been followed for at least 1.5 years, and in 86 percent a good or excellent result was obtained. We believe this procedure is indicated for persistent, severe drooling in any patient in whom non-operative methods have failed,(More)
Despite decades of use, the long-term safety of breast implants in women remains a concern. While the incidence of breast cancer among women has increased dramatically in the past decade, the implant-related risk of carcinoma of the breast only recently has received widespread attention. An additional concern is that the presence of the implant may delay(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of this consensus is to establish an algorithm for the management of patients who develop a late or delayed periprosthetic fluid collection. A work group of practicing plastic surgeons and device industry physicians met periodically by teleconference and discussed issues pertinent to the diagnosis and management of late periprosthetic(More)
Longstanding concern exists regarding the potential for women with breast implants to experience delayed detection of breast cancer. Furthermore, survival among cosmetic breast implant patients who subsequently develop breast cancer is a concern. Since 1976, this institution has monitored cancer incidence in a cohort of 3182 women who underwent cosmetic(More)
BACKGROUND As the first generation of women who received cosmetic breast implants ages, questions remain about cancer risk. This study is an update of the Los Angeles Augmentation Mammaplasty Study and examines cancer risk among women with long-term exposure to breast implants. METHODS The authors conducted a record linkage cohort study of patients with(More)
Surgical implantation of breast prostheses for cosmetic purposes has become increasingly popular, and by 1981, it was estimated that three-quarters of a million women had had such an operation. The long-term potential risks, particularly of breast cancer, of such procedures have not been properly investigated. To evaluate the potential breast cancer risk,(More)
There is a considerable misconception regarding the properties of silicone gels and envelopes among plastic surgeons. This is partly due to the counterintuitive characteristics of this unique material. The material is relatively weak as rubbers go, its deformation characteristics are time-related, and its permeability varies with the substance involved.(More)

A great deal of recent safety research combined with over 30 years of clinical experience has proven the value and relative safety of these devices. Aside from the side effect of capsular contracture, the complication rate of this surgery approaches that of any clean elective procedure. There is no convincing evidence to date of any systemic disorder that(More)
BACKGROUND Primary lymphomas of the breast are very rare (0.2-1.5% of breast malignancies) and the vast majority (95%) are of B-cell origin. Recently, 40 cases of clinically indolent anaplastic large-cell kinase (ALK)-negative, T-cell, anaplastic, non-Hodgkin lymphomas (T-ALCL) have been reported worldwide. METHODS A tumor biopsy specimen from a patient(More)
