Parents give the gift of cosmetic surgery for graduation
More than 17% of the aesthetic procedures performed in the US last year were on 19- to 34-year-olds, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and plastic surgeons and dermatologists say aesthetic surgery is an increasingly popular graduation gift. Parents give rhinoplasty, otoplasty, scar removal and other procedures to help their children "enter into the next phase of life feeling confident and strong," says facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dara Liotta.

Researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center reported in Science Translational Medicine that a therapy combining ultrasound, gas-filled microbubbles, stem cells and the gene that codes for bone morphogenetic protein 6 closed bone gaps and healed leg fractures within eight weeks in animal models. If the treatment succeeds in human trials, it could help some 100,000 people in the US alone who experience nonunion fractures.

Study finds link between nasal tip, upper lip projection in rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty techniques including columellar strut and tongue-in-groove maneuver that increase nasal tip projection also increase upper lip projection, decreasing the Z angle by 2.7 degrees, according to a retrospective study published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.
