Until recently, osteotomies and surgeries to reposition prominent zygoma have been performed by means of a coronal incision or intraoral and preauricular incisions. Such incisions have penalties such as scars, the possibility of facial nerve injury, and long operative times. After reflecting on their past experiences with facial bone surgery, the authors(More)
BACKGROUND To date, various types of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) have been developed for clinical use. AlloDerm is the most familiar type of ADM to most surgeons in breast reconstruction. It is prepared by freeze-drying. CG CryoDerm is the first form of ADM that requires no drying process. Therefore, theoretically, it has a higher degree of preservation(More)
BACKGROUND Telecanthus occurs because of the disruption of the medial canthal tendon (MCT). The deformity of medial canthus can result from nasoorbitoethmoid fractures, tumor resection, craniofacial exposure, congenital malposition, or aging. Repair of the MCT using transnasal wiring is regarded as a method of choice to treat telecanthus. We have introduced(More)
For over 2000 years, many artists and scientists have tried to understand or quantify the form of the perfect, ideal, or most beautiful face both in art and in vivo (life). A mathematical relationship has been consistently and repeatedly reported to be present in beautiful things. This particular relationship is the golden ratio. It is a mathematical ratio(More)
Gynecomastia is a benign, excessive development of the male breast that occurs at an overall incidence of 32–36 %. The authors effectively removed peripheral fat tissues with power-assisted liposuction (PAL) and periareolar glandular tissues with a cartilage shaver in a series of patients. The small periareolar incisions were not easily recognized. Between(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the patients who had undergone delayed correction of posttraumatic enophthalmos. METHODS The medical charts of 85 patients with posttraumatic enophthalmos and who underwent surgical correction at the authors' medical center were reviewed. The outcomes were analyzed in relation to various(More)

In this report, the authors present the experience on the reconstruction of the totally degloved foot and extremely long soft tissue defect of a lower limb with the combined free tissue transfer using the anterolateral thigh flap as a link in two male patients between October 2009 and December 2010. The anterolateral thigh flap has been commonly used as a(More)
Meningioma originates from arachnoid cap cells and is usually dura-based and slow growing. They account for 15% to 20% of primary brain tumors. Primary intraosseous meningioma (PIM) is a type of ectopic meningioma, and has been rarely reported. PIMs have been reported to constitute less than 2% of meningiomas, and are usual reported in the frontotemporal(More)
OBJECTIVE Distraction osteogenesis is a good technique to correct micrognathia and to prevent tracheostomy in patients with Pierre Robin sequence. However, the airway must be maintained during the distraction period. The purpose of this study was to determine the usefulness of temporary tongue-lip traction during the initial period of mandibular distraction(More)
