Disease relevance of Rhytidoplasty

  • However, the present series of 82 face lifts performed using a modification of the original Marcaine/epinephrine infiltration technique without the second-look technique demonstrates an overall incidence of hematoma formation of 7.3 percent [1].

Psychiatry related information on Rhytidoplasty

  • When operating on cigarette smokers a few options exist that may improve outcomes: less undermining with rhytidectomy; sympathetic blockades; limited use of alternate nicotine sources; and of course smoking cessation, which is ideal [2].

High impact information on Rhytidoplasty

  • Among patients exposed to the gentian violet, infection was significantly more likely to develop in those undergoing a face lift or augmentation mammoplasty than in those undergoing blepharoplasty (P less than 0.001) [3].
  • The Jech Gallery: an environmental face lift: the Dings Home-Zone project [4].
  • CONCLUSION: On comparing our findings to results of larger rhytidectomy series in which minoxidil was not used prophylactically, and our experience before using minoxidil, we conclude that minoxidil plays a role in effectively preventing the temporal hair loss that occurs following primary cervicofacial rhytidectomies [5].
  • From April of 1995 to January of 2000, 103 patients (99 women and four men) underwent a lip augmentation procedure by the senior author (N.L.) using SMAS grafts harvested from a simultaneous rhytidectomy [6].
  • At present, the superficial adipocutaneous system (SACS) face lift is almost always associated with a lipostructure performed in the same operative session [7].

Biological context of Rhytidoplasty

  • Cosmetic surgery is beginning to be more socially acceptable and openly talked about in Australia. Even our Prime Minister's wife has done a story in a magazine about her recent face-lift [8].

Associations of Rhytidoplasty with chemical compounds

  • It would appear, therefore, that deep tissue support, in the form of galeal closure and an SMAS procedure in coronal brow lift and rhytidectomy procedures, respectively, provides increased viscoelastic support, producing immediate significant decreases in closing skin tension in these procedures [9].
  • Thirty-five patients underwent simultaneous modified deep-plane face lift and immediate trichloroacetic acid peel, with 35% being the maximum strength used on undermined areas [10].
  • The recent evolution to deep-plane face lift and peeling agents other than phenol led to this reexamination of the subject [10].
  • Premedication with oral clonidine for facial rhytidectomy [11].
  • Delayed healing of rhytidectomy flap resurfaced with CO2 laser [12].

Gene context of Rhytidoplasty

  • Thirty-four SMAS preparations were taken from 17 patients during either primary face lift operations (12 women) or reoperative face lift procedures (4 women, 1 man), which were performed 4 to 9 months after the original surgery, to examine the elastin and collagen content [13].
  • Face lift, Part 4: Use of superficial musculoaponeurotic system suspending sutures [14].
  • Facelift for CHA extension program [15].
  • We use three indications for forehead lift: ptosis, creases, and previous facelift (PCP) [16].
