The creation of a supratarsal fold is the most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedure in Asia. The presence of epicanthal folds in Asian eyelids is one of their unique features, in combination with the lack of supratarsal folds. While this represents an element of Oriental beauty in a traditional way, many seek cosmetic improvement in the medial(More)

OBJECTIVE To propose a new technique for eliminating the medial epicanthal fold of the Asian upper eyelid. DESIGN A retrospective review of the Z-epicanthoplasty and modified Z-epicanthoplasty procedures performed during 1995 through 1999. SETTING Facial plastic surgery private practice. PATIENTS Four hundred seventy-five Korean American patients from(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the anatomy of the corrugator supercilii muscle (CSM). DESIGN Cadaver dissections following a preset approach. SETTING Anatomy laboratory at a medical school. METHOD Sixteen sides of 8 preserved cadaver heads were dissected. Inferiorly based trapdoor-type flaps were developed in the subgaleal plane. The bone origins of the CSM were(More)
PURPOSE The present study evaluated the prognostic significance of apoptosis-related proteins, p53, Bcl-2, Bax, and galectin-3 in patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN A total of 63 patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer (squamous cell carcinoma: 62; adenocarcinoma: 1;(More)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) N-deacetylase(s) was quantified in whole skin, using a novel method that involved reaction of skin with exogenous HA as substrate. Acetyl (CH(3)CO-) moieties generated were converted chemically to MeOAc and quantified using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. HA (1.7 mg) and skin (1.0 g) yielded 3.32 and 769.00 microg of MeOAc from(More)

One of the characteristic features of the East Asian person's eyelids is the lack of a supratarsal fold. A relaxed upper eyelid skin, due to the lack of supratarsal fixation, causes coverage of the tarsal margin of the upper eyelid. Thus the palpebral fissure looks smaller, giving a slit-eye appearance. Unlike those lids with a natural supratarsal crease,(More)

Peripheral branches of the facial nerve, the marginal mandibularis in particular, are vulnerable to injury during facial surgery, i.e., submandibular gland surgery, flap development in radical neck dissection, liposuction of the jowl area, percutaneous insertion of a screw for mandibular plating, especially at the angle of the mandible, and elevation of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify and map the course of the peripheral branches of the cranial nerve preoperatively and percutaneously. DESIGN Prospective study. Preoperative percutaneous nerve mapping performed prior to the operation under deep sedation or general anesthesia without muscle paralysis. SETTING Private office surgery suite, freestanding surgery(More)
Numerous procedures to eliminate medial epicanthal folds have been described. Despite an abundance of available procedures, most surgeons are reluctant to perform medial epicanthoplasty for Asian eyelid cosmetic surgery because of frequent development of unsightly scars. The Park Z-epicanthoplasty differs from the previously described procedures by(More)
