Importance  The contribution of columellar strut grafts (CSGs) to nasal tip support has not been determined via structural mechanics. Optimal graft dimensions have yet to be objectively determined.

Objectives  To use a finite element model (FEM) of the human nose to (1) determine the effect of ...

Importance  Dental implantation has been used for oral rehabilitation to improve cosmesis and function.

Objective  We aim to evaluate the clinical outcomes and success rates of primary and secondary dental implant placement in vascularized fibula bone grafts used for segmental mandibulectomy defects.

Design, Setting, and Participants...

Importance  The evaluation of the effects of midline platysmaplasty concomitant with rhytidectomy.

Objective  To determine whether midline platysmaplasty limits the degree of lift during deep-plane face-lift.

Design, Setting, and Participants  Deep-plane rhytidectomy was performed on 10 cadaveric hemifaces. The redundant skin for excision after performing ...

Original Investigation 
Timothy R. Miller, MD
Includes: Supplemental Content, Multimedia: (powerpoint)

Importance  First reported 3-dimensional quantitative study of the lower periorbital area after lower blepharoplasty using the fat repositioning technique.

Objective  To determine the volumetric effects lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning provides to the tear trough and deep fat compartments of the upper cheek.

Design, Setting, and ...

Original Investigation 
Ho Chan Kim, MD; Yong Ju Jang, MD, PhD

Importance  An open approach has been adopted for rhinoplasty because of its wide and undistorted exposure. The formation of a columellar incision scar is the main drawback of this approach.

Objective  To evaluate the incidence and evolution of and risk factors for columellar incision scars in ...

Surgical Pearls 
Benjamin D. Bradford, MD; Jared C. Inman, MD; Farhad Ardeshirpour, MD

This Surgical Pearl presents a step-by-step description of submental orotracheal intubation to provide surgeons a clear and concise reference when managing the airway in patients with severe facial trauma.

Research Letter 
Daniel R. Butz, MD; Jeremy Warner, MD

This case series report reviews the use of lateral forehead rotational flaps to help close large forehead flap donor sites.

Original Investigation 
James C. Marotta, MD; Kyeesha Becoats, MD

Importance  The study sought to identify a new method for measuring internal nasal valve patency.

Objective  To determine whether intraoperative endoscopic suction–assisted evaluation of the internal nasal valve is a useful technique to assess internal nasal valve area and function.

Design, Setting, and Participants  A ...

Original Investigation 
J. Paul Radabaugh, MD; Paul Zhang, MD, MPH; Duane Wang, MD; Philip L. Y. Lin, DDS, MD; Jared Shelton, DMD, MD; James Y. Liau, MD; Larry L. Cunningham Jr, DDS, MD; Thomas J. Gal, MD, MPH

Importance  Multiple factors can be associated with the delayed repair of maxillofacial injuries that may be associated with increased morbidity.

Objective  To assess factors affecting timing of repair and barriers which may exist in the management of maxillofacial trauma.

Design, Setting, and Participants  This retrospective ...

Tessa Hadlock, MD

This viewpoint discusses agreement regarding standard outcome measurements as being critical to advancing the treatment of patients diagnosed with facial paralysis.

Original Investigation 
Virginia P. Teti, MD; Seden Akdagli, MD; Sam P. Most, MD
Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Health insurance companies commonly require a trial of corticosteroid nasal spray prior to authorizing nasal surgery, even in patients with severe to extreme anatomical nasal obstruction, despite lack of data supporting such medical therapy.

Objectives  To provide a model for the comparative analysis of medical ...

Original Investigation 
Jessica R. Gandy, BS; Bryan Lemieux, BS; Allen Foulad, MD; Brian J. F. Wong, MD, PhD
Includes: Supplemental Content

Background  Current methods of microtia reconstruction include carving an auricular framework from the costal synchondrosis. This requires considerable skill and may create a substantial defect at the donor site.

Objective  To present a modular component assembly (MCA) approach that minimizes the procedural difficulty with microtia repair ...

Surgical Pearls 
Myriam Loyo, MD; Tom D. Wang, MD

This surgical technique describes cleft rhinoplasty for long-lasting nasal symmetry and breathing improvement.

Original Investigation 
David Chan, MD; Yadranko Ducic, MD, FRCSC

Importance  Advancement genioplasty is a versatile procedure able to address both functional and cosmetic issues. It is commonly performed by oral surgeons and less so by facial plastic and plastic surgeons, presumably because of its inherent risks.

Objectives  To present our technique for advancement genioplasty and ...

Original Investigation 
Tjoson Tjoa, MD; Cyrus T. Manuel, BS; Ryan P. Leary, BA; Rani Harb, PhD; Dmitriy E. Protsenko, PhD; Brian J. F. Wong, MD, PhD
Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Computational modeling can be used to mimic the forces acting on the nasal framework that lead to the inverted-V deformity (IVD) after surgery and potentially determine long-range outcomes.

Objective  To demonstrate the use of the finite element method (FEM) to predict the formation of the ...

Invited Commentary 
Daniel J. Meara, MD, DMD

Patients seeking improved lower facial esthetics through genioplasty are often confronted with the options of bony advancement osteotomy vs implant augmentation. The choice of one of these options vs the other is often based on surgical experience and training rather than evidence-based data.1 Implant surgery is less ...

Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Systematic reviews attempt to answer research questions by synthesizing the data in primary articles. They are an increasingly important tool within evidence-based medicine, guiding clinical practice, future research, and health care policy.

Objective  To determine the reporting quality of recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses in ...

Invited Commentary 
Lisa E. Ishii, MD, MHS

In this issue of JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, Lee et al1 describe adherence to the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) checklist for systematic reviews reported in plastic surgery. This study is timely because the number of systematic reviews in the facial plastic ...

Original Investigation

Introduction  Nasal valve insufficiency is distinct from other anatomic causes of nasal obstruction. Functional rhinoplasty refers to the collective techniques used to reconstruct the lateral nasal wall, typically achieved with the use of spreader and alar grafts. Patients undergoing functional rhinoplasty can also have aesthetic desires and ...

Invited Commentary 
Ben C. Marcus, MD

In the teaching of rhinoplasty, we have long held the notion that we must divide nasal surgery into functional and cosmetic types. For many years, the lack of attention to the functional aspect of nasal surgery led to failures that affected form and function.1 We now know ...
