Importance  Graft visibility in the supratip region has been the main criticism of the butterfly graft. Because of the graft location, slightly unfavorable supratip fullness can occur, resulting in patient dissatisfaction with the cosmetic result.

Objective  To describe the clinical outcomes and visibility of the butterfly ...

Invited Commentary

In this issue of JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, Kiyohara and colleagues1 present a systematic review comparing currently available over-the-counter mechanical nasal dilators. Most of these devices are designed to temporarily facilitate inspiratory breathing by reducing transnasal resistance and improving inspiratory airflow in healthy individuals and in ...

Nicole Kiyohara, BA; Christopher Badger, BS; Tjoson Tjoa, MD; Brian Wong, MD, PhD

Importance  The internal nasal valve is the narrowest part of the nasal airway and a common site of inspiratory collapse and obstruction of nasal airflow. Over-the-counter mechanical nasal dilators are an alternative to surgical intervention that attempts to improve airflow through the internal nasal valve.

Objective  ...

Importance  The hypoglossal nerve has long been an axonal source for reinnervation of the paralyzed face. In this study, we report our experience with transposition of the intratemporal facial nerve to the hypoglossal nerve for facial reanimation.

Objectives  To determine the feasibility and outcomes of the ...

Surgical Pearls

Importance  Estimates of the 30-day hospital revisit rate following septorhinoplasty and the risk factors associated with revisits are unknown in the current literature. Surgical 30-day readmission rates are important to establish, as they are increasingly used as a quality care metric and can incur future financial penalties ...
