One of the most frequently requested facial contour improvement procedures in the Orient is reduction malarplasty. However, until recently, osteotomies in the malar region have been performed by means of a coronal incision that required a larger incision and more invasive procedure than many patients are comfortable with when considering an elective(More)
Two operative scar lines remain after bilateral cleft lip repair. A method has been devised in which the two scar lines are reduced into one. The characteristics of this method include (1) an inconspicuous scar, (2) elevation of the nasal tip using the prolabium, (3) repair of the whistling deformity, (4) a natural-looking mustache, (5) formation of a pout,(More)
Numerous surgical methods have been introduced to treat osmidrosis. However, many problems with wound healing have been reported, including haematoma, seroma, skin necrosis and severe scarring. Ultrasound energy liquefies sweat glands via cavitation, but minimally affects blood vessels and nerves at the same energy level. Our patient was treated with(More)
Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a useful wound dressing that can be applied to a wide variety of wounds. Patients with ischaemic wounds, however, may experience further necrosis with NPWT at the commonly recommended pressure of -125 mm Hg. We hypothesized that with a suction pressure of -125 mm Hg, tissue pressure will likely occlude most of the(More)
In most cases, patients with Bowen disease lesions can be easily treated by surgical excision and direct closure; however, the ultrasonic surgical aspirator, an instrument in common use in many fields, offers a good treatment alternative with few drawbacks for patients with lesions that are large and/or located in joint areas, areas that are hard to heal,(More)
A microdissected thin groin flap is a uniform thin flap with a long vascular pedicle prepared by microdissection of the deep branch of the superficial circumflex femoral system (SCIS). However, the safe dimensions of the flap are not known, and anatomical variations of the SCIS sometimes impede elevation of the flap based on the deep branch. Therefore,(More)
The results of repairing cleft lip by aesthetic plastic surgery are now excellent. However, the cleft lipnose deformity is still very difficult to repair with the present techniques. A technique that can repair the cleft lip-nose deformity with good results is presented. The technique is divided into three parts: Part I consists of nasal repair of the(More)
A 7-year-old girl presented with classic signs of typical Marshall-Smith syndrome, a rare early overgrowth syndrome. Her long-term survival, which is extremely uncommon in such patients, can be attributed to the successful securing and maintenance of an airway. Continued follow-up is extremely important in finding out how to ensure long-term survival of(More)
Despite recent advances in reconstructive surgery, extremely wide and thin flap coverage has rarely been reported. Recently, the authors developed a technique for transferring a very wide and thin flap from the thigh area using microdissection. In this procedure, both perforators of the anterolateral thigh flap and the tensor fasciae latae perforator flap(More)
