Board-certified plastic surgeon Jarrod Little this week was to take fat from one woman to use in reconstructing the jaw of her twin sister, whose face was disfigured during cancer treatment. While fat grafting has been used for years using fat from another part of a patient's body, this would be the first case in which the fat is transplanted from a donor.
Cosmetic surgeon Tal Dagan of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai used 3D-printing technology to build a new nose for 15-year-old Dalan Jennet, whose face was badly burned by contact with a power line. Scar tissue was treated with lasers so it could be used to line the inside of the boy's new nose and restore his sense of smell. Jennet also regained his sense of taste, and surgeons were able to restore his sight as well.

A 3D scanner gives patients a realistic idea of what the results of a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure will look like, board-certified plastic surgeon Mark Chin said. Chin uses the Vectra XT 3D Imaging Machine and said that while it cannot guarantee outcomes for patients, "it's the closest thing I can do to communicate to them what I think I can do, and if they're happy with that, then we try to shoot for the goal."
