Comparison of filling agents for lip augmentation.
TLDR
The authors posit that the goal for the upper lip is to create a form that harmonizes with the patient's unique features, taking into account age and ethnicity; the goal to create bulk, greater prominence, and projection of the vermillion. Expand
Ablative skin resurfacing with a novel microablative CO2 laser.
TLDR
Because of the areas of spared epidermis and dermis inherent in a procedure that employs fractional photothermolysis, healing is more rapid compared to fully ablative CO2 laser skin resurfacing and downtime is proportionately reduced. Expand
Age and Gender Differences of the Frontal Bone: A Computed Tomographic (CT)-Based Study.
TLDR
The shape of the frontal bone varies in young individuals of different genders and undergoes complex changes with age because of bone remodeling, which helps physicians choose the best surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for the forehead. Expand
Cellulite: a new treatment approach combining subdermal Nd: YAG laser lipolysis and autologous fat transplantation.
TLDR
The treatment of severe cases of cellulite by a combination of 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser lipolysis and autologous fat transplantation proved to be both safe and effective and represents a new treatment option for the ubiquitous cellulite disorder. Expand
Precision in Dermal Filling: A Comparison Between Needle and Cannula When Using Soft Tissue Fillers.
TLDR
If precision in filler injection is defined as the filler material remaining in the plane of intended implantation, then using cannulas resulted in a more precise injection of material as compared to needles. Expand
Calvarial Volume Loss and Facial Aging: A Computed Tomographic (CT)-Based Study
TLDR
The lateral expansion of the skull may favor a skeletonized appearance of the face in elderly individuals and the computed volume of the calvaria decreased with advancing age in both genders, providing an additional element in the multifactorial model for facial soft-tissue laxity. Expand
The Safety of Laser Skin Resurfacing With the Microablative Carbon Dioxide Laser and Review of the Literature
TLDR
Microablative fractional resurfacing with the DOT laser enables treatment of a diversity of skin conditions with short post-procedure recovery time and an extremely low incidence of adverse side effects. Expand
Multi-center clinical study and review of fractional ablative CO2 laser resurfacing for the treatment of rhytides, photoaging, scars and striae.
TLDR
A review of fractional ablative resurfacing is presented alongside the results from a multi-center clinical study employing the fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser (SmartXide DOT, DEKA) for the treatment of rhytides, photoaging, scars and striae distensae. Expand
Laser-assisted liposuction.
TLDR
This minimally invasive technique employs laser energy in direct contact with adipose tissue to induce lipolysis and, at the same time, coagulate tiny blood vessels and stimulate dermal and subdermal neocollagenesis to permit a fast, comfortable postoperative recovery, a rapid return to activities of daily living, and excellent skin redraping as a result of laser-induced skin tightening.

The Anatomy of the Facial Vein: Implications for Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Procedures
TLDR
Detailed information on the course of the facial vein in relation to neighboring structures will serve as helpful information for plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgeons. Expand
