The authors studied the risk of thromboembolism in a randomized study of 190 abdominoplasties. In this study, none of the classical risk factors (weight, operating time, weight of the surgical specimen, combined surgery) were significant. Only contention associated with anticoagulants (low molecular weight heparin) decreased this risk to 2.74%. In view of(More)
Long-term follow-up data following 2 breast enhancement treatments with stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) gel are limited. Although HA gel is no longer marketed for breast enhancement, there is a clinical need for information about follow-up of previously treated women. A multicenter, noncomparative study was conducted in women seeking breast enhancement.(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphangioma circumscriptum, a rare, benign disease that can be either congenital or acquired, involves the deep dermis and subcutaneous lymphatics. OBJECTIVE This study aims to analyse the efficacy of surgical resection of vulva lymphangioma circumscriptum (VLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 2000 and December 2008, eight consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND Injectable fillers are frequently used to restore volume and correct wrinkles in perioral region. However, evidence for perioral indications is scarce. OBJECTIVE Assess the efficacy, patient satisfaction, and safety of new range of hyaluronic acid fillers (HA E) in perioral enhancement. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a multi-center,(More)
The clinical approach towards the midface is one of the most important interventions for practitioners when treating age-related changes of the face. Currently a plethora of procedures are used and presented. However, few of these approaches have been validated or passed review board assigned evaluations. Therefore, it is the aim of this work to establish a(More)
BACKGROUND Biophysical characteristics of hyaluronic acid gel fillers reflect individual manufacturing processes. They confer rheologic properties that provide scientific rationale with Evidence Level II clinical correlation for selection of appropriate fillers for specific clinical applications. Cohesivity, a key property, maintains gel integrity,(More)
The muscular anatomy of the face is complex. Animation patterns of facial muscles vary significantly among individuals. Activity of facial muscles determines expression and emotion and affects the eyes aperture and the amount and extent of facial rhytids. Injection of botulin toxin for facial rejuvenation has become a very popular procedure and allows the(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of lymphedema (LE) includes complex decongestive physiotherapy (manual lymphatic drainage, bandaging, exercises, skin care, elastic stockings). Surgical therapy is rarely useful. However, lymphovenous anastomosis (LVA) is the most used surgery in LE. We have assessed LVA in lower limb LE. METHODS Thirteen patients (5 women, 8 men) with(More)
The use of botulinum toxin in the lower face is more complex and less reliable than its use in the upper face. Use in the lower face is also fraught with more adverse events. The anatomy of the lower face is complex, as the muscles of this region are very close together and interface at different levels and depths to perform heterogeneous functions, such as(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing volume is an important part of facial rejuvenation since volume loss is common and typically age-related. HA E Volume is a moderately firm gel designed to be injected into the subcutaneous tissue for volume enhancement. OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy, patient satisfaction, and safety fo HA E Volume in patients with bilateral volume(More)
