Hyaluronic acid fillers are the second-most popular non-invasive aesthetic procedure globally. It’s a simple, out-patient treatment with great results and very low risk of complications.  However, one of those rare complications is pretty serious: intravascular embolisms, or blockage of the blood vessels.

In this video, Rod J. Rohrich, MD, Editor-in-Chief of “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,” discusses a new experiment that tested the efficacy of different-sized doses of hyaluronidase, an enzyme which can break down hyaluronic acid and dissolve the embolism.

Around the world, the butt is associated with female beauty, fertility, and sexuality. That’s why most of the research on and protocols for buttock-enhancing plastic surgery have been based on the female physique. But, a growing number of men are seeking body contouring surgery, including gluteal refinement. They want more youthful and athletic builds, which- as opposed the ideal rounded buttock shape for women- aligns with a square-shape at rest and a butterfly shape during contraction.

In this video, Rod J. Rohrich, MD (Editor-in-Chief of "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery") interviews Alfredo Hoyos, MD (Plastic Surgeon from Bogota, Colombia) to discuss his team’s new hot topic study that proposes male-specific protocols for gluteal contour-reshaping and enhancement.

But in plastic surgery, there is not routine evaluation of patient nutrition nor is there an across-the-board strategy to safely overcome patient malnutrition.
