- PublicationMetadata onlyTackling Abdominal Wall Contour Deformities in Patients with Complex Ventral Hernias in Plastic Surgeon-s Perspective(2020-05-06T04:00:00Z) ERGÜN, SELMA; Gules, Mustafa Ekrem; KİRAZOĞLU, AHMET; MEMMİ, NAİM; ERGÜN, SELMA; KİRAZOĞLU, AHMET; MEMMİ, NAİMAcquired abdominal wall defects or contour disturbances may develop due to traumas, soft tissue infections, previous surgical interventions, ablative tumor resections, burns, or radiation damages. Improvements in drug technology and surgical intensive care techniques have increased the rate of encountering patients with abdominal wall defects. One should consider that features of the defect such as size, depth, position, and associated medical problems undertake a guidance role while selecting the repair method of abdominal wall defect or contour disturbances. Distorted abdominal appearance due to abdominal wall defects or abdominal wall scarring can be repaired with local abdominal flaps, tissue expansion, panniculectomy, or abdominoplasty. A series of 25 patients with distorted abdominal appearance due to abdominal wall defects or abdominal scarring were treated by using tissue expansion, panniculectomy, abdominoplasty, or local abdominal flaps and, in some patients, concurrent ventral hernia repair. Age, gender, BMI scores, previous operations, surgical procedures, complications, outcomes, and patient/physician satisfactions were analyzed during the follow-up period. The average lady BMI score was higher than the average gentleman BMI score. Concurrent hernia repair was significantly higher in ladies (n: 20) than gentlemen (n: 3). In our patients, no recurrence of ventral hernia was detected in the follow-up period. The mean follow-up period was 37.08 months (range: 12-96). The resultant abdominal contour was satisfactory for both the patients and us. To improve the results, individualized approach should be preferred.

- PublicationOpen AccessHybrid Nasal Filler: Combining Agarose Gel and Hyaluronic Acid for Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty(2022-04-01T00:00:00Z) Buhsem, Omer; KİRAZOĞLU, AHMET; KİRAZOĞLU, AHMETIntroduction: Given its structural properties, it would be a mistake to assume that a single type of filler fits perfectly to each anatomical region of the nose in nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedures. Therefore, we aimed to develop a hybrid treatment model by applying two different structural types of fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA), a hydrophilic material, and agarose gel (AG), a nonhydrophilic and high G-prime material, were used in the study according to their advantages and disadvantages. Methods: Patients who presented to the office desiring filler treatment for nonsurgical correction of the nose in a 2-year period were enrolled in the study. HA was used intradermally 0.1ml per each point in the tip defining points and supratip. Injections of 0.4–0.7 and 0.4–0.6ml AG were used supraperiosteally in the radix and nasal spine, respectively. Clinical improvement was evaluated two weeks later using the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale from 1 to 5 (1: exceptional improvement; 5: worsened patient). Patient satisfaction was evaluated on a scale from 0 to 10 (0: not satisfied; 10: very satisfied). Results: A total of 32 patients (mean age: 27 years) were enrolled in the study. Mean score of patient satisfaction was 9.09 of 10 after injection and 9 of 10 after 2 weeks. Clinical evaluation scores after injection were 1.72 of 5 and 1.69 of 5 on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale. No major complication was observed. Conclusion: The HA and AG filler hybrid concept applied in different anatomical locations represents a safe and convenient option for nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedures.
