While the majority of rhinoplasty procedures performed by plastic surgeons are successful, some patients require a second operation to correct complications or unsatisfying results. The intricate nature of this procedure, commonly known as revision rhinoplasty, was a topic of discussion last weekend during the annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
During the meeting, a panel of plastic surgeons held two discussions on the topic, covering aspects such as:
- Correcting a short or crooked nose
- Using grafts or sutures to shape the nasal tip
- Alternative treatment methods
- Treating nasal, nostril and alar base deformities
- Correction of suboptimal rhinoplasty results

Scientists working with the Scripps Research Institute say they have solved the problem of stem cell fragility, a major hurdle that has long-hindered the progress of stem cell research.
During the culture process, stem cells frequently die unless scientists take very meticulous, labor-intensive steps to keep them alive. By introducing two compounds called Thiazovivin and Pyrintegrin, the cells are protected, increasing their survival rate significantly.
Developments in stem cell research, though a subject of debate, offer hope for revolutionary therapeutic purposes, including treatment of injuries, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and aging. The regenerative properties of pluripotent stem cells could facilitate tissue repair in a variety of applications – even cosmetic treatments.
