Having just returned from the Annual FFAS meeting in New Orleans.  The Foundation for Aesthetic surgery has grown over the past 25 years to include Plastic Surgeons of all specialties; General, Ocular and Dermatologic.  The 4 day meeting included live surgeries from an outpatient facility in Metairie, La. as well as videos.  The number of "Take Home Pearls" seem to grow daily with surgeons sharing information about their practices from as far away as UCLA. I was particularly impressed with information regarding lower eyelid surgery.  One physician did a review of all of his cases and determined that his best results occurred with 4 lid blepharoplasty using pinch technique skin excision as well as repositioning of lower lid fat.  Loking at his before and after's, I was impressed by his insight and hard work at his method of discovery.  Being a facial plastic cosmetic surgeon myself, I continue to critique and learn new and improved procedures to enhance my patient outcomes.  I plan to utilize his suspension technique in my practice.  He elevates  the lateral canthus (the slanted part of the eyelid junction closest to the ears) using a deep suture in this island of tissue and anchoring it to the lateral orbital sidewall.  This yields a very subtle and yet very noticeable rejuvenative effect.

Nasal surgery was also discussed and there was quite a discussion regarding non-surgical rhinoplasty.    The use of hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Volbella were used to help refine nasal tip projection, nasal dorsal elevation, and columellar support.  Injecting collagen like fillers into the nasal sill helped to open the nostril further as opposed to injecting outside the alar mound on the cheek to reduce nasal base flaring.  One of the authors liked using calcium hydroxyappetite spheres (Radiesse) for his nasal enhancements.  This technique has always been my favorite.  As a facial plastic surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasties I have found this to be an instant favorite with a number of my patients.  These techniques are primarily used in patients that need a small amount of refinement after already having nasal surgery or who are needing a simple "touch up" for an aging nose.  I have discovered most patients having this type of procedure prefer not having much downtime compared to having to recover from a larger procedure.
Traditional Rhinoplasty was also reviewed and discussed.  Many that peaked my interest were the physicians that have found through basic tip support and less cartilage removal, have follow-up patients fo
 r over 10 years that still look very natural and elegant.  With less radical surgery, one is able to reshape the nose without creating a weakened complex that runs the risk of collapse in the future.  I also enjoyed the discussions regarding reconstructive nasal surgery with so much attention payed to having a perfect looking nose, with trauma, often times one is limited to the amount of beautification possible with an initial procedure and must allow for function to take top priority in this case.  
In my next blog, I will review Forehead Lifts, Facelifts, and in the following blog I will review Fillers and Botox.  Please feel free to advise me of any questions you have and how we may assist you. Michael B. Lyons, M.D. FAACS

​​
Gynecomastia or most commonly referred to as Pseudogynecomastia (enlarged male breast) begins to be seen in males as they approach their fourth decade of life.  Often times this is seen earlier with true gynecomastia (the existence of glandular tissue under the nipple) as a genetically inherited defect.  This is often times very asymmetric and patients wish to have this corrected during their teen years.  The most common condition is seen with an abundance of fatty proliferation around the nipple in the mature male and this is termed pseudogynecomastia.  
First the physician will take a history from the patient and find out if there has been any nipple discharge or tenderness.  Next a thorough physical examination with palpation of breast to record the presence or absence of glandular tissue under the areola (nipple complex).  Glandular tissue needs to be excised if there are any questions of whether or not the tissue is benign or malignant or if there is a hormonal imbalance adding to the growth of the tissue.  Some drugs such as Clonidine have been reported to add to male glandular tissue.
If the findings of simply redundant fat is found under the breast skin of a male, liposuction has been very successful in sculpting, shaping and reducing the fatty tissue to achieve a youthful less feminine appearance.  I also use two lasers to reduce swelling, bruising, ease of extraction and to add skin tightening.  Special attention is paid to the post op treatment of this tissue with periodic massaging, compression garments, and ace wraps during the first two weeks.  Patient are happiest when an accurate diagnosis of the condition is made along with management of expectations.

You are invited to our 10th Annual Diva, Dine & Dash Day Wednesday 12-6-17 from 9 til 5 pm -Great Holiday Specials

Last week we celebrated our 10th annual "Diva, Dine and Dash" event where we discount fillers, Botox, consmeceuticals, and spa treatments for the Christmas Holidays.  If you haven't checked our website for our specials, you may be pleasantly surprised to find a few of your favorite "Touch Ups" on sale.  As a Facial Plastic Cosmetic Surgeon, I was wonderfully enlightened recently by another physician giving a few of us advanced training on Vollure .  This product is fairly new to the Allergan Family of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers.  Its advantages include lip plumping with dramatic tissue integration.  This quality allows it to functionally support and safely enlarge the lips and commissures (parenthesis).  This reduces the "Perma Frown" or "Puppet Look" and the product lasts over 1.5 years.  We were also enlightened to see dramatic changes when the Kybella (fat dissolving injectable) was performed on another patient.  This was the patient's second injection..and "wow" what a transition she was already experiencing.  See photos below.  She had a noticeable reduction (greater than 40%) of her submental Fat Pad under her chin.    There can be bruising, which usually fades in 7 to 10 days & possible slight swelling.  Patient reported people thought that she had lost weight and looked more rested.  Correction for a double chin is obtainable without surgery.  

While I was at this meeting, we discussed current trends in Laser Liposuction of the face and body.  Some of the physicians like to use fat to transfer to the face as a filler to reverse the signs of aging, still others liked the thicker product known as Voluma .  This is another Allergan Product (same company that makes Botox ) , and Voluma's advantage is that it lasts 2 years and is firm and supportive enough to lift the cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial folds (parentheses lines). Voluma has also been used to perform non-surgical Rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping) procedures.  Finally a product called Bellafill was discussed.  This is a 5 year filler which induces the patient's own collagen.  It is used in the cheeks, temples, pre-jowl, chin and brow.  The techniques presented displayed alternatives to a Facelift procedure, with revolumizing the mid face, one sees a very dramatic lifting, fullness, and gravity defying effect.  Be sure to check our the videos and additional photos for each product. These procedures along with PDO Threadlifting (aka Rejuva Lift) are ways to postpone the need for a Facelift.  Selecting the correct product for the right area is important and experiece is key to placement to obtain the desired appearance!
