Importance  In youth, facial aesthetic units flow together without perceptible division. The face appears as a single dynamic structure with a smooth contour and very little if any shadowing between different anatomical regions. As one ages, facial aesthetic units slowly become distinct. This process may be a ...

Importance  Minimizing morbidity when performing free flap reconstruction of the head and neck is important in the overall reconstructive paradigm.

Objective  To examine the indications and success rates of free tissue transfer using small-caliber facial recipient vessels and minimal access incisions.

Design, Setting, and Participants  ...

Importance  Reconstruction of the scalp after acquired defects remains a common challenge for the reconstructive surgeon, especially in a patient with a history of radiation to the area.

Objective  To review the current literature and describe a novel algorithm to help guide the reconstructive surgeon in ...

Importance  Immediate postreduction imaging is a standard practice in the management of mandibular fractures at many hospitals. However, the literature suggests that postreduction imaging in maxillofacial fractures fails to influence clinical decision making significantly.

Objectives  To determine the cost-effectiveness of different clinical decision pathways regarding postreduction ...

Importance  This study clarifies the pedicle geometry and vascular supply of a midline forehead flap for nasal reconstruction. It reports on the vascular reliability of this flap and its ability to reduce hair transposition to the nose, a major complicating factor of previous forehead flap designs.
