Onabotulinumtoxin A (Botox) can be a safe and successful off-label treatment of vertical platysma bands of various severities. Due to risk of the botulinum toxin diffusing to the underlying anatomic structures such as the deglutition muscles, the larynx, and the neck flexors, a maximal dose of 100 units has been suggested and there have been no known reports of untoward effects with doses less than 60 units. We present a case of mild to moderate dysphagia in a patient after very low doses of Abobutulinumtoxin (60 units, equivalent to 20 units of Onabotulinumtoxin using a 3:1 conversion ratio).

Specific techniques for fat transfer.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2008 Nov;16(4):401-7, v
Suzan Obagi
At no time in the past has the field of cosmetic reconstruction paid as much attention to the contribution of volume loss to facial aging. Volume replacement can be achieved with synthetic fillers, implants, and patients' own adipose tissue. However, the results of autologous fat transfer procedures yield variable results among patients and surgeons.

This article examines the pathophysiology of periorbital aging and details a technique, autologous fat transfer, to restore a youthful appearance to the periorbital complex. The use of photographs taken of patients in their late teens or early 20s shows that the main changes of periorbital aging are consistent with volume loss more so than gravitational changes. This article reflects on the shortcomings of currently accepted surgical approaches to the rejuvenation of the periorbital region.

Autologous fat augmentation for addressing facial volume loss.

Oral Maxillofac Surg Clin North Am 2005 Feb;17(1):99-109, vii
Suzan Obagi
Autologous fat augmentation is in vogue again. The realization that traditional cosmetic surgery has often failed to achieve a truly rejuvenated look has refocused attention on volume replacement. Autologous fat is truly the ideal filler, being available in relative abundance, nonimmunogenic, a living tissue, and able to take on the properties of the area into which it is infiltrated.

Autologous fat augmentation: a perfect fit in new and emerging technologies.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2007 May;15(2):221-8, vii
Suzan Obagi
The focus of recent cosmetic surgery is on the replacement of lost facial volume. Much of aging is a complex set of changes, including bone loss, muscle atrophy, and subcutaneous loss. For this reason, autologous fat augmentation is the perfect fit in the realm of new and emerging technologies.

The periorbital region is one of the first facial regions to show signs of aging. Traditional surgical approaches consisted of lifting and excisional procedures including brow lifts and blepharoplasties. Suboptimal results, however, have led surgeons to reassess their approach to the periorbita to address volume loss.

To perform a quantitative analysis of adipocyte viability after fat processing during autologous fat transfer, comparing the processing methods of washing, centrifuging, and sedimentation.
An experimental study was conducted in which 24 fat samples were obtained after processing from 22 patients undergoing autologous fat transfer. Histologic analysis of periodic acid-Schiff-stained specimens was then performed.

Many methods have been proposed for the treatment of acne scars with variable cosmetic results. Subcision has been successfully used, although complications often include a hyperpigmented and hypertrophic wound healing response. Nonablative skin resurfacing with a 1320-nm Nd:YAG laser has also been proposed; however, the results are generally inferior to those of more invasive modalities.
