    Title Minimizing Scars with Excision and Immediate Laser Resurfacing.
    Date June 2009
    Journal Aesthetic Surgery Journal / the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
    Excerpt

    The Ultrapulse CO (2) laser has been used extensively for cosmetic resurfacing of the skin. This modality adds the precision and depth control that peels and dermabrasion lack. With the healing model of epithelial migration, precisely coapted wound margins should heal with minimal scarring. I conducted my study with 10 patients with facial lesions and acne scarring grades I to III. Grade I covers mild, very superficial depressions; grade II is defined by moderate scarring; and in grade III, deep scars to the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. Grades II and III were treated with excision and immediate laser resurfacing of the skin with minimally perceptible scars.

    Title Reducing the Incidence of Hematoma Requiring Surgical Evacuation Following Male Rhytidectomy: a 30-year Review of 985 Cases.
    Date February 2006
    Journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
    Excerpt

    BACKGROUND: The reported incidence of hematoma following male rhytidectomy ranges from 7.9 to 12.9 percent. In 1976, it was demonstrated that postoperative hypertension is a key etiologic factor in hematoma formation and postoperative use of Thorazine was recommended to control blood pressure. This study analyzes the incidence of hematoma after male rhytidectomy at one institution after a strict and aggressive perioperative blood pressure control regimen was initiated. METHODS: From 1982 to 2002, 985 patients with a mean age of 61 years (range, 49 to 72 years) underwent rhytidectomy. Thirty-six patients required surgical evacuation of expanding hematoma after rhytidectomy. Operative procedures were performed by more than 100 different plastic surgery attending surgeons, residents, and fellows. RESULTS: The overall incidence of hematoma during this study period was 4.24 percent. Age, medical history, medications, type of anesthesia, rhytidectomy technique and combination of procedures, and length of operation were not independent risk factors for determining who was more likely to develop a hematoma. Thirty-three percent of the patients requiring surgical evacuation had systolic blood pressure greater than 150 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure greater than 90 mmHg preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively. Over a 30-year period, the incidence of hematoma requiring surgical evacuation has decreased from 8.7 percent to 3.97 percent after initiation of a strict perioperative blood pressure control regimen. CONCLUSION: Despite the lower incidence of hematoma following male rhytidectomy today as compared with 30 years ago, the incidence in men (3.97 percent) remains higher than that in women (1 to 3 percent).
