Review: Proposed Methods to Improve the Survival of Adipose Tissue in Autologous Fat Grafting

In 2009, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Task Force on Autologous Fat Grafting (AFG) determined that autologous fat grafting was a relatively safe procedure with a generally low rate of complications. In recent years, fat grafting has been used widely within the field of plastic surgery such as facial rejuvenation, hand rejuvenation, breast reconstruction and volume enhancement, treatment of skin photoaging, and correction of contour deformities. In this article, we review the basic science of fat grafting, proposed methods offered to improve survival rate, engraftment, and reported outcomes of AFG procedures. The most problematic and persevering issue in fat grafting is the unpredi

The 6 Indications of Platelet-Rich Plasma in Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine

Introduction in recent years, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has emerged as a promising autologous biological treatment modality for the use in aesthetic and regenerative medicine. Attractive features of PRP are the extended release of various growth and differentiation factors from activated platelets, tissue regenerative, and healing capabilities, as well as the lack of problems associated with immunogenicity. This week, we would like to review 6 indications of PRP in Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine including wound healing, skin and facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, hand rejuvenation, breast augmentation, and musculoskeletal regeneration. 1. Wound Healing The clinical benefit of PRP a

Treatment of Suture-related Complications of Buried-suture Double-eyelid Blepharoplasty in Asians

Double-eyelid blepharoplasty is a popular aesthetic surgery in Asian countries and is performed using one of the 2 alternative approaches: the incisional method or the buried-suture method. The incisional method is advised in cases of secondary surgery or patients with excessive amounts of fat or redundant skin in the upper eyelid because this technique is associated with a lower rate of double-eyelid loss. The buried-suture method is most often indicated as primary surgery if the patient wants to avoid visible surgical scars. Additionally, the buried-suture method is more easily revised. Ease of suture removal must be taken into account when performing double-eyelid blepharoplasty because s
