Abstract:

Introduction: In recent years a multitude of it is frequently noticed that plastic surgeons are categorized as Reconstructive or Aesthetic Surgeons. However the true fact it exist a very close relation between both. It is actually impossible to separate frequently between them for fine results. In most of the reconstructive procedures it is essential to have a pleasant aesthetic outcome. In that work examples are presented of this intimal relation in various conditions in congenital anomalies, trauma and tumors. Conclusion are drawn that for successful and fi ne results it is primordial for the young plastic surgeon to have a good training in both categories.

Abstract:

Introduction: Treatment of soft tissue laxity in the neck region has been a challenge in the field of non-surgical aesthetics. There are many different types of threads that are currently being used to reposition soft tissue in the neck, for example polydioxanone (PDO), poly-lactic acid and polycaprolactone. The efficacy and longevity of results vary according to the angle and spatial distribution of barbs and/or cones,  resorption period, and collagen-stimulating ability of the threads as well as the direction(s) of the barbs/cones. This paper presents evidence of the efficacy of Happy Lift threads, which are bidirectional barbed polycaprolactone threads in repositioning soft tissues in the neck. These threads are inserted into the subdermal layer, which give an immediate repositioning of the tissue. It is a very safe procedure with little bleeding, discomfort or pain, and is done with local anesthetics. There is little or no down time, and most procedures take no longer that 1 hour. Materials and methods: Histological studies were carried out at specific time points up to 15 months post-procedure to determine the effects of Happy Lift threads placement on skin thickness and collagen levels. Results: Histologically, it is shown that mast cells migrate to the area where the Happy Lift threads are inserted, and the formation of a homogeneous fibrous capsule around the threads that continues to assure tissue firmness. The dermis becomes thicker indicating the formation of new collagen and elastin. The procedure of introducing the thread into the tissue does not give an acute inflammatory response, and therefore the long lasting lifting effect is caused by the cutaneous reaction.  Conclusion: The Happy Lift threads are not resorbed by the tissue until at least 12 months, which contributes to a substantial production of new collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and also induces angiogenesis. This gives a gradual increasing lift and revitalization for the next 6-12 months post-procedure.

Session Introduction

Natasa Ihan Hren

University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Title: Contemporary surgical treatment of dentofacial deformities

Time : 11:55-12:25

Speaker
Biography:

Natasa Ihan Hren graduated from the Ljubljana Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Dentistry. She obtained Master of Science degree, and PhD degree in Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery specialty from Board of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery. She is currently a Professor and Head of the Faculty Department of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery, Medical faculty Ljubljana, Slovenia. She is subspecialized in Orthognathic Surgery. She is Lecturer, Research Project Coordinator and Advisor. Her current research trials are in the fi eld of Basic Oral Pathology (peri-implant bacteria and peri-implantitis, cytokine characteristics of odontogenic cysts and other chronical oral infl ammations) and in the fi eld of Facial Skeleton (bone healing, osteoporosis) and Orthognathic Surgery with three-dimensional clinical and research implications.

Abstract:

Dentofacial deformities are functional and aesthetic problems. One of the most common ones in Slovenia is mandibular prognathism and maxillary retrognatism which results in Class III occlusion and requires a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment. Th e basic points of pre- and post-surgical orthodontic treatments are known, also surgical procedures are standardized. But the problems of surgical planning, postsurgical stability and the aesthetics have still remained mainly because of the facial soft tissue’s characteristics. Many studies of the facial soft tissues with three-dimensional (3D) analysis,ultrasound diagnostics and speech analysis were done in our department. Th e pre and postoperative 3D scanning of facial surface allowed to determine the average Slovenian face and the postoperative diff erences. The decision which orthognathic procedure is best for a good aesthetic result in correction of skeletal Class III deformity is not always straightforward. Three dimensional imaging brings clear benefi ts in accurate measurements of facial morphology. One of our prospective studies was to verify objectively whether post-operative changes occur in regions not directly aff ected with surgical movements of the underlying jaw bones. According to the type of surgery- BSSO set-back of the mandible, Le Fort I advancement of maxilla or a combination of both, the pre- and post-operative optical scans were registered. According to the expectations, changes were the greatest in the regions where the underlying bones were moved. But regardless of the operation performed, changes were found over the whole face. Changes in the nose, cheek and upper lip region in BSSO group, in the lower lip and chin region in Le Fort I group confi rm the concept of the facial soft tissue mask acting as one unit. Also other dentofacial deformities as skeletal Class II and asymmetries will be presented. Th is morphological and physiological knowledge can improve the treatment of dentofacial deformities referral to address these outstanding issues. Women with alcohol dependence and PTSD with a history of IPV want help however the health and social services do not always recognize their calls for help or their symptoms of distress. Recommendations are made for treatment centers to become trauma-informed that would help this recognition.

Title: Use of lipofilling, plasma rich platelet and fi llers as augments to standard esthetic surgical operations

Time : 12:25-12:55

Speaker
Biography:

Abstract:

Introduction & Aim: What is it that makes a face look beautiful? Throughout history each human culture has defined the ideal beauty in its own way. This ideal has never been constant and is still subject to change. The process of ageing is a natural process, and we as surgeons often alter this natural process. This concept of facial image beauty is dependent on our senses and the development of tridimensional image that patients develop for themselves after an esthetic surgical intervention.

Methodology & Results: We reviewed results from surgical interventions in 162 patients operated at our University Clinic for Plastic Reconstructive Surgery during 2013 to 2016 that underwent rhinoplasty (92 patients: 52 female, 40 male), blepharoplasty (54 patients: 35 female, 19 male), and cheiloplasty (16 patients: all female). Our patients were between 30 and 65 years of age (mean age of 42.7 years). The majority of the patients were treated with lipofilling (113, 69.7%), use of Plasma Rich Platelet Implant in 9 patients (5.6%) and the use of fillers in 40 patients (24.7%). Lipofilling was performed with harvesting abdominal fat with liposuction and then reinjecting it at the target area. Plasma Rich Platelets were prepared locally in our laboratory, and the fillers used are those that are commercially available preparations. Our results have shown the with the use of fillers overcorrection has to be repeated every 9 months, With PRP overcorrection should be repeated after 4 months, and with lipofilling the first overcorrection is performed after 6 months and then after 1 and ½ year.

Conclusion: We feel that lipofilling yields the best visual effect by providing best texture to the skin and a more lasting effect. This procedure also requires the use of most resources. Locally, PRP provides an inexpensive method for augmenting Standard Esthetic Surgical Operations, while the employment of fillers gives rise to an immediate visual effect. All methods will provide satisfactory augmentation of Esthetic Surgical Operations and their use should be individualized.

Saints Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje, Macedonia

Title: Girls new trophy and mammy’s new breasts

Time : 13:55-14:25

Speaker
Biography:

Abstract:

Aesthetic breast surgery is a major step for most women and oft en a positive one. Th e breast is an important attributes of female beauty, a symbol of attractiveness and desire. Breast enlargements and breast lift help women who consider their breasts to be either too small or lacking fullness, or too full to achieve their desired shape and size, who want to make them appear fi rmer and more youthful. At the University Clinic of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department, Skopje, Macedonia in 3 years period there were 165 women who had gone through breast surgery. We performed 95 augmentations, 37 mastopexy augmentations, 33 reduction mastopexy. Th e age of the patient for surgery varied from 18-57 years. Th e surgery technique used was: Th e donut, Benelli or circumareolar incisions in14 patients; lollipop or vertical incisions for 8 patients, the anchor technique for 48 patients, and infl ammatory incision for 95 patients (augmentation). The average patient age was 30 years.The average implant volume was 300 cc. On a 10-point scale, the women reported an average pain score during recovery of 6. Around 95% of women stated improved self-esteem. Almost all patients reported that the results met their expectations.Studies have shown that aesthetic breast surgery can help boost self-esteem, body image and sexual satisfaction.

Tzachi Shelkovitz

Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Israel

Title: Platelet rich plasma treatment for hair loss

Time : 14:25-14:55

Speaker
Biography:

Tzachi Born in 1958.Graduated from the Tel Aviv University Sackler School of Medicine. Specialized in dermatology and venereology at the Department of Dermatology, Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer. Attended advanced studies in aesthetic dermatology at the University of San-Francisco, California. Teaches and supervises medical students, dermatology interns and general practitioners in several dermatology and dermatologic surgery programs at Tel Aviv University, various dermatology departments and HMOs.

 

Abstract:

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a concentration of human platelets (PLT) in a small volume of plasma (2-4 x concentrated). The platelets contain 7 different growth factors, which, between other actions, recruit stem cells that differentiate to cells of the treated tissue. PRP utilizes the patient’s own (autologous) PLT, derived from his/her blood. PRP usage takes advantage of normal healing pathways only at an accelerated rate. The use of PRP has been known in medicine since 1954, but from the past few years, since it entered the field of esthetic dermatology, it started to draw a lot of attention. In this lecture, I will present my own experience of treating more than 150 patients and more than 250 treatments in the last 3-5 years, with follow up of more than 2.5 years.

Amit Luthra

Ishira Skin Clinic, India

Title: What comes after: Post procedure modalities

Time : 14:55-15:25

Speaker
Biography:

Amit Luthra is a dermatologist in Ishira skin clinc and he has a good amount of practical experience in performing procedures like injectables, lasers, chemical peels and cutaneous surgeries in India. In this article, he has tried to bring forth the often neglected aspect of post procedure modalities. These, if followed can alter the adverse outcomes of some of these fairly risky procedures, especially in skin of color.           

Abstract:

Introduction: Cosmetic dermatology procedures are on the rise with adverse events being reported quite often, especially in skin of color. A number of these adverse events can be avoided by proper post procedure instructions and compliance by the patients.

Methodology: Post procedure instructions for injectables, lasers, chemical peels and cutaneous surgeries have been detailed out with special reference to bruising and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). Role of bruise preventing agents such as Arnica and Bromelain has also been discussed.

Results: Bruising post injectables, PIH after peels and lasers and adverse outcomes of all procedures need simple instructions and clear understandings to prevent them from happening.

Conclusion: Skin of color patients do need proper care post procedure as do others. A good percentage of these adverse events are avoidable, if the patients and the physicians are aware and lay emphasis on what comes after the actual procedure.

Vincent Wong

Title: 23XY lift: Male facial enhancement with dermal fi llers

Time : 15:25-15:55

Speaker
Biography:

Dr. Vincent Wong is an established aesthetics doctor, trainer and author based in London. He is Save Face accredited and has won several awards for his work. As a Key Opinion Leader, he has headlined a number of national campaigns within the aesthetics industry and publishes scientific papers on a regular basis. Recognized as a pioneer in his field, Dr. Vincent has also been featured in popular press, radio and TV channels

Abstract:

Introduction: Facial attractiveness is characterized by a combination of factors that involve symmetry and proportions that are deemed aesthetically pleasing. Sexual dimorphism (the phenotypic differences between the sexes of the same species) is often less obvious when it comes to facial structure. However, the approach to male aesthetics is different to that of female. Hence it is of utmost importance that we understand sexual dimorphism and have a profound appreciation of male and female beauty. Materials & Methods: The 23XY Lift describes the injection techniques of dermal fillers into the 7 zones of the male face where volume deficiencies are commonly found. The 7 zones are:

1. Temple

2. Cheek

3. Under Eye Area

4. Alar Base

5. Corner of Mouth

6. Chin

7. Angle of the Jaw

Conclusion: When it comes to male facial aesthetics, the 23XY Lift can help enhance the masculinity of the visage while minimizing the risks of complications and feminization of the face. Here, we discuss the 7 regions of the male face that can be treated using a step-by-step approach. These techniques are used widely within the aesthetics industry and are considered safe. However, it is important to bear in mind that this chapter acts purely as a guide, and there are various other techniques available for the same regions. Practitioner’s skills and experience also play a vital role in the final outcome of treatments, therefore, we strongly recommend using this guide as an adjunct to your advanced aesthetics training.

 

Dinko Kaliterna

Polyclinic Poliderma, Zagreb

Title: Can the cream replace the lasers to treat melasma?

Time : 16:15-16:45

Speaker
Biography:

Dinko Kaliterna was born in 1971 in Split, where he finished medical high school. He enrolled to Faculty of Medicine in Zagreb in 1990, and graduated in 1996. He then spends his internship working in K.B. Merkur in Zagreb and after finalizing his state examination in 1997 he goes to finish his military service which he spent working as a medic. After returning from the army, by the end of 1998, he spends 8 months in surgical units in several hospitals in Zagreb where he performs minor aesthetic-corrective procedures.

Abstract:

Melasma is very common refractory esthetic problem which is hard to resolve. It is common among women but men are also affected. Typically melasma recurs even after the treatment and it gets worse during summers. There are many different treatments to treat melasma but the lasers are the most effective. Mostly it takes 3 to 5 sessions with the lasers but there is limitation for laser treatment and many people can’t afford it. The market is saturated with the creams for hyperpigmentation which are mostly limited with bad results, such as irritation. These creams cannot be used during the summer and it takes a long time to see some results. We want to represent the cream based on resorcinol derivatives which gives results which can be compared with lasers or give even better results. The results can be seen in less than 30 days which is much faster than any laser. It seems that now we have very effective cream for the melasma. Acne is the most common dermatological disease. Typically acne resolves but very often the scars develop. There are many different treatments for acne scars. The scar can’t be 100% removed but due to the latest technology like fractional lasers we achieve mostly very good results. Typically it takes 3 to 5 sessions with the down time and some side effects. Unfortunately many people can’t afford those treatments. The only effective alternative for the acne scars is the cream based on the resorcinol derivatives. This is a first cream for the treatment of acne scars. The first results are seen in less than 30 days. The cream can’t replace the lasers but gives the results which are comparable with laser treatments. The new treatment for the buttock shaping Today the treatment for the buttock shaping are extremely popular, especially in Brazil. For that purpose the fat or implants are mostly used. The limit of those treatments is that banana fold is not affected. That area is the most refractory for any treatment. Even professional models and dancers have problem with that area regarding the shape and skin laxity. Until recently there was no any effective treatment for the banan fold. We want to represent the device based on radio frequency which uses canila to warm the connective tissue and destroy the fat under the skin. With the infrared camera and on the tip of the canila we measure the temperature which we adjust. Only 1 session is enough, there are no brusies and the results are longlasting.

Abstract:

Statement of the Problem: The use of high Energy Based Devices [laser, intense pulsed light (IPL), RF, HIFU US] is booming in aesthetic practice. And, of course, with the growth of these activities the number of side effects and complications is increasing. Most often, these cases are associated with a breach of protocols of the performed procedures and with the wrong before & after treatment customer's care.

Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: We made analysis of complications based on the patient’s photos, statistics and patient satisfaction with descriptions of the procedures.

Findings: Post-treatment erythema is the most common side effect of those methods. Recent developments in high energy sources technologies have aimed at minimizing thermal damage to the dermis. We present a case, impressionably demonstrating that high-energy devices demand profound knowledge of its mechanism of action and can cause severe harm in the absence of basic knowledge. Nevertheless, complications have to be clearly distinguished from professional errors. 

Conclusion & Significance: This report provides the highlights of how to minimize these complications, to manage statistical reports of risks for the relevant physicians to show less side effects and more consistent clinical results.
