Recent study: Having a facelift doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily feel better about yourself

THE QUESTION People who yearn for a more youthful appearance sometimes opt for a facelift to help achieve that. Do they feel better about themselves after this cosmetic surgery?

THIS STUDY involved 59 people, mostly women (average age, 58) who had elected to have facelift surgery. Before the surgery and six months after, they completed a standardized survey that evaluated their self-esteem. After the facelift, the participants indicated that they appeared to be about nine years younger, on average.
However, taken as a group, their average self-esteem ratings overall did not change, despite their perception of a more youthful appearance. Ratings on the self-esteem scale improved for about 48 percent of the group, declined for 30 percent and stayed the same for 22 percent. Self-esteem generally improved among those who had low self-esteem before the facelift, but self-esteem dropped among people who had high self-esteem before the surgery. It remained essentially unchanged among those with average self-esteem pre-surgery.

The study appeared in the current issue of the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery

A study finds that self-esteem may not change even if a person’s appearance does.

Deviated noses may be harder to correct than first thought
People who have crooked, or "deviated," noses are more likely to have a face whose two sides don't quite match up either, suggests a new study from South Korea.

"Many patients who think they have deviated noses actually have combined facial asymmetry," said Dr. Yong Ju Jang, who is the study's senior author from the University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Seoul.

"This means that deviated nose is not a simple nose problem in many cases, but is complex issue related with facial skeleton abnormality," he said in an email to Reuters Health.

If doctors and patients don't pay proper attention to facial asymmetry, Jang said, "they often end up with dissatisfaction because of the difficulty in making the nose look straight in patients with facial asymmetry."

The researchers note that deviant noses tended to curve toward the smaller side of asymmetrical faces. That may be because the nose is formed along with the rest of the face during embryonic development and may curve toward the slower-growing side.

Individuals concerned about their deviated nose should consider consultation with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience. Dr. Pearson is a Rhinoplasty Specialist who performs nasal surgery to repair nasal deviation.

Men in suits are lining up to have their double chins removed

Forty percent of my [Kybella] patients are men. On some days, it’s even more men than women,” says Dr. Sachin Shridharani, an Upper East Side-based plastic surgeon who has treated 30 patients, including Kristian, with Kybella since its June 15 release.
Kybella, which was created by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals Inc., was approved by the FDA in an overwhelming 17-0 vote in April. The drug is made from deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced in the body to help absorb fats. When injected into the fat below the chin, known as submental fat, it destroys fat cells, which are reabsorbed by the body. Patients can receive up to 50 injections in a single session, with as many as six sessions total, coming at least one month apart. The average treatment lasts 30 minutes for the first appointment, and 15 to 20 minutes for each subsequent one.

Dr. Pearson offers Kybella treatments for those interested in improving the appearance of their necks.

FDA Approves the First-Ever Anti-Aging Filler for Hands

There's an old adage that if you want to know a woman's real age, look at her hands. That may be less reliable now that the FDA announced its approval this month of the first injectible filler for hands.

The injectible, Radiesse, was first cleared by the FDA in 2006 to fill smile lines. It won approval for use in the back of the hands based on a one-year trial of more than 100 patients in several sites around the country. At three months, 98 percent of patients in the study reported improved appearance.

New evidence that Arnica montana helps with healing following Rhinoplasty.

A recently published study entitled, "Perioperative Arnica montana for Reduction of Ecchymosis in Rhinoplasty Surgery" reports that Arnica montana seems to accelerate postoperative healing, with quicker resolution of the extent and the intensity of bruising in rhinoplasty surgery, which may dramatically affect patient satisfaction.

Studies of homeopathic therapies to decrease post-rhinoplasty bruising have previously used subjective measurements, limiting their clinical significance. Recently, Arnica montana was shown to decrease postoperative ecchymosis after rhytidectomy, using an objective measuring tool. We believe that oral A. montana, given perioperatively, can be objectively shown to reduce extent and intensity of postoperative ecchymosis in rhinoplasty surgery.
