  • Face-lifts' gains last years, study confirms
    More than 75% of patients who had a face-lift looked younger more than five years later than they did before surgery, according to a study in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Though the patients did show signs of aging, their jowl height, chin-to-neck angle, nasolabial folds and overall appearance looked better. Standardized images of 50 patients were assessed for the study. United Press International (11/29) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
  • Full face transplant allows patient to emerge from the shadows
    A Virginia man who received a full face transplant in March at the University of Maryland Medical Center is venturing out in public after spending 15 years behind closed doors.

  • Experts: Get a grip on communications to improve efficiency
    Finding new ways to get answers and information to patients can improve efficiency and patient satisfaction at practices with heavy incoming telephone call volumes, two experts write. They suggest tracking calls for a week and using tools such as scripts to give patients a consistent experience. One strategy is to turn complicated calls into office visits by asking, "Do you want to be seen?" Medscape (free registration) (11/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • Video shows buttocks implant gone wrong
    An online video showing a woman moving a silicone buttocks implant beneath her skin is probably no hoax, says plastic surgeon Anthony Youn. People seeking cosmetic procedures on the cheap are setting themselves up for trouble, Youn says: "If it's not performed almost perfectly, you could have major problems." Patients should ensure their surgeon is board-certified in plastic surgery and has experience in the procedure in question.
