Resveratrol, an antioxidant polyphenol from red wine, has been the subject of intense interest in recent years due to a range of unique anti-aging properties. These include cardiovascular benefits via increased nitric oxide production, down-regulation of vasoactive peptides, lowered levels of oxidized low-density lipoprotein, and cyclooxygenase inhibition;(More)
BACKGROUND High-intensity focused ultrasound presents a noninvasive approach to body sculpting for nonobese patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a high-intensity focused ultrasound device for sculpting of the abdomen and flanks. METHODS Adults (aged 18 to 65 years) with subcutaneous abdominal fat greater than(More)
Despite advances in surgical techniques and breast implant design, certain problems unique to breast implant surgery remain. The historically most onerous problem, capsular contracture, is relatively uncommon now. However, problems related to thin capsules and periprosthetic atrophy are becoming more common; these problems include rippling, symmastia,(More)
The use of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) has become a useful adjunct to implant-based breast reconstruction and revision of the augmented breast. In both instances, the goal is replacement or reinforcement of thinned or missing tissues for implant support and control of the implant pocket. This article reviews the factors that contribute to(More)
BACKGROUND High-intensity focused ultrasonography (HIFU) is a nonsurgical, noninvasive method for body sculpting in nonobese patients. The technique ablates subcutaneous adipose tissue by causing molecular vibrations that increase tissue temperature and induce rapid cell necrosis. OBJECTIVES The authors evaluate the long-term safety of a HIFU device for(More)
An approach to abdominoplasty has been developed incorporating a series of key surgical maneuvers designed to minimize complications while controlling scar position and eliminating the need for long-term drains. These include sharp defatting of the layer deep to the superficial fascia, progressive tension anchor sutures from the flap to the rectus sheath,(More)
BACKGROUND Liposome bupivacaine is a liposomal formulation that allows delivery of bupivacaine for 96 hours with a single local administration. It is indicated for the management of postsurgical pain. OBJECTIVE This retrospective review of 10 clinical trials assessed the potential impact of local anesthetics on wound healing and chondrolysis. Various(More)
Calif.) is a silk-derived, bioresorbable scaffold approved in the United States for use as a transitory scaffold for soft-tissue support and repair to reinforce deficiencies where weakness or voids exist, including use in plastic and reconstructive surgery and general soft-tissue reconstruction. Its biome-chanical properties are similar to those of host(More)
This article explores whether some new acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) can be applied to breast augmentation or reconstruction revision, and particularly whether they can withstand the centripetal pull and prevent recurrent stretch deformities following periareolar mastopexy. Acellular dermis use in breast reconstruction and aesthetic breast revision is a(More)
