This video demonstrates highlights of facelift surgery including the use of tumescent infiltration, 500-700ccs of the face and neck, lipo-dissection (tunneling) of the neck for wide-undermining, and perforator preservation. The extended SMAS elevation typically avoids the need and is counterproductive to platysma plication. Finally, moderate volume fat grafting is critical for volume restoration and facial shaping. These procedures facilitate one another for an effective and efficient facelift.

This month Rod J. Rohrich, MD, Editor-in-Chief of "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery," discusses three innovative studies from PRS. The first hot topic article reviewed fenestrated ADM-assisted implant-based breast reconstruction to determine the effect of fenestrations on the ability of matrices to suppress capsule formation. The second hot topic reviews fat grafting literature hoping to determine which technique is best. And the final hot topic article looks at how Photodynamic therapy works against Hypertrophic scarring. Volume 136, Issue 4.
