The cheek-lip grooves, often referred to as nasolabial folds, are one of the facial characteristics most commonly complained about by patients in all age groups. A variety of methods for correction have been proposed, using implants or autografts. Some of the methods have relied on diminishing the crest lateral to the groove thus camouflaging the depth of(More)

External rhinoplasty is considered as the approach of choice in correcting nasal deformity following injury, either accidental or surgical. The advantages of a good exposure, lack of injury to the skin, osteotomies under direct vision, and the accurate placing of grafts giving a good anatomical and physiological correction are discussed.

To date, there are few published large series within the literature on the use of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (Gore-Tex) in rhinoplasty. This retrospective study, based on chart and photographic reviews, serves to contribute a 6-year experience (mean patient follow-up period, 17.5 months) with the alloplast in nasal surgery amassed by one surgeon. The(More)

Anatomical and esthetic analysis of the nasal tip is carried out. Critical review of various surgical maneuvers applicable in tip reduction is provided. Comments are made on the dynamics of tip alterations. A new method of nasal tip reduction with excision of skin through external rhinoplasty is described. Its advantages over the currently used tripod(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a new technique of polytef (Gore-Tex) implantation into the upper and lower lips and nasolabial grooves by using large implants as a method that achieves effective cosmetic improvement. SETTING A private cosmetic surgery center. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-three (female) patients who desired fuller lips and 62 patients (52 female and 10(More)
Restoration of a well-defined, youthful-looking, cervicomental angle is not easily achieved. The classic rhytidectomy is now often supplemented by lipectomy and platysmamodifying procedures. Still, irregularities of neck contour are bothersome, and for the short, stocky neck, results at times fall short of a patient's and surgeon's expectation. Insertion of(More)
OBJECTIVE Vertical dome division is an effective maneuver in nasal tip surgery. Its applications include reduction of the tip projection, increasing tip rotation, narrowing of the domal arch, and correction of lobule asymmetry. Nevertheless, some surgeons avoid this technique, fearing tip deformity and possibly impaired nasal airflow. RESULTS In this(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of GORE-TEX (W. L. Gore & Associates Inc, Flagstaff, Arizona) alloplast in rhinoplasty. DESIGN A 17-year retrospective medical chart review at a teaching hospital, community hospital, and private facial cosmetic surgery center. A total of 521 patients (122 male and 399 female; age range, 13-70 years) were followed for(More)
PURPOSE Nicotine replacement therapy has become a popular therapy for smokers attempting to stop smoking. Unfortunately, some subjects continue to smoke while receiving it. Since nicotine is believed to be the primary constituent of cigarette smoke responsible for its acute adverse effects on myocardial oxygen supply and demand, concomitant nicotine(More)
OBJECTIVE This article describes an improved method of osteotomies in rhinoplasty to secure better control of the latitude and depth of the nasofrontal angle and a more natural configuration of the lateral nasal wall with increased stability of the upper lateral cartilages--factors contributing to better function and esthetic results of rhinoplasties.
