  5. 5. Key Facts • The facial nerve exits the stylomastoid foramen and quickly penetrates the parotid gland and bifurcates • Provides motor innervation to the muscles of facial expression and sensory innervation to the conchal bowl and the anterior tongue • The temporal and marginal mandibular are the branches most at risk during surgery because they have very superficial rami. Injury to temporal nerve causes inability to elevate eyebrows or close eyelids • Undermine in the superficial fat above the SMAS to avoid injury to the temporal branch • The marginal mandibular nerve lies beneath the platysma muscle; it is most at risk from injury along the jawline. Injury causes corner mouth droop • The nerves innervate the facial muscles deeply at their undersurfaces, except for the buccinator, which is innervated at its superficial surface • Damage zygomatic branch causes eyelid ectropion and inability to close eyelid • Inability to smile - damage to buccal branch • Innervation of post ear - greater auricular nerve • Nerve for Conchal bowl - Vagus nerve Sensory Nerves of the Neck and Posterior Scalp Great Auricular (C2, C3), Lesser Occipital (C2), Greater Occipital (C2), Transverse Cervical (C2, C3), Supraclavicular (C3, C4) • The nerve supply to the lateral neck and posterior scalp is from the cervical plexus • C2 (lesser occipital) supplies sensory innervation to the scalp posterior to the ear and the superior portion of the posterior auricle • C2, C3 (great auricular) supplies the sensory innervation to the skin overlying the parotid, the lower anterior ear, the lower posterior ear, and the mastoid process • C2 (greater occipital) supplies sensory innervation to the occipital scalp • C2, C3 (transverse cervical) supplies sensory innervation to the anterior portion of the neck • C3, C4 (supraclavicular) supplies sensory innervation to the lower neck, clavicle, and shoulder Danger Zones During Surgery 1.) Approximately 6.5 cm below the external auditory canal along the posterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle; injury to the great auricular nerve (C2, C3); lies posterior to the SMAS; results in numbness of the inferior two-thirds of the ear and the adjacent  cheek and neck 2.) Erb’s point near the mid-posterior sternocleidomastoid muscle helps locate the greater auricular, lesser occipital, and spinal accessory nervesInnervation to Other Areas of the Body Spinal Accessory Nerve • Injury results in the inability to elevate the shoulder on the affected side, winged scapula, and the inability to initiate arm abduction Sural Nerve • Innervates the posteriolateral sole Posterior Tibial Nerve • Innervates the anteromedial sole Deep Peroneal Nerve • Innervates the great toe and toe cleft between 1st and 2nd toes Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery  493
  6. 6. Superficial Peroneal Nerve • Innervates the dorsum of the foot Arterial and Venous Supply to the Face and Scalp • ICA supplies eyelids, upper nose, nasal dorsum, forehead, scalp via ophthalmic branch • ECA supplies rest of face • The six major arteries supplying the face: 1.) Facial: Angular artery anastomoses with dorsal nasal branch of ophthalmic artery in periocular region 2.) Superficial temporal: Comes off the ECA, and palpable at the superior pole of the parotid gland; branches into the transverse facial and frontal arteries 3.) Maxillary: Comes off the ECA, and branches into the infraorbital, buccal, and inferior alveolar (mental) arteries 4.) Posterior auricular: Off the ECA 5.) Occipital: Off the ECA 6.) Ophthalmic: Comes off the ICA, and branches into the supraorbital, supratrochlear, palpebral, dorsal nasal, and lacrimal arteries; this network anastomoses with the ECA, specifically, the angular artery anastomosis with uTIP the dorsal nasal branch asters are metabolized in the plasma E • Facial veins lack valves by pseudocholinesterase and therefore • Drain into cavernous sinus should not be used in patients with pseudocholinesterase deficiency15.2  ANESTHETICS Classified into two main classes, amides and esters, based on the linkage in the intermediate chain. Three portions of the chemical structure: 1.) Aromatic; responsible for onset of activity  2.) Intermediate (middle) chain; determines class (amide vs. ester) 3.) Amine; determines duration of action • The amides are metabolized in the liver by the p 450 enzymes • Esters may cross react with STPP [sulfa, thiazides, PABA, PPD (paraphenylenediamine)] • Block neural transmission by displacing calcium ions from receptor and control sodium permeability • Prilocaine: risk of methemoglobinema (treat with methylene blue or ascorbic acid) • Methemoglobinemia also seen in patients on dapsone and with G6PD—can use cimetidine with dapsone to decrease risk. • Bupivicane: cardiotoxicity • Benzocaine: safe in liver disease patients • Avoid benzocaine in patients allergic to parapheylinediamine • Tetracaine: longest acting • Procaine: shortest active494  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future

First sign is anesthetic perioral tingling. Occurs at 1-6 mg/ml of lidocaine • Recommended maximum dosage of lidocaine in a igital tourniquets can be safely left on D for 10–15 minutes adults: 4.5 mg/kg without epinephrine; 7.0 mg/kg with epinephrine; 55 mg/kg used in tumescent anesthesia for liposuction • 1% lido with epi (1:100,00) 10,g/ml a 70 kg man can have 50ml max of lido • Recommended maximum dosage of lidocaine in children is 1.5-2 mg/kg without epi; 3-4 mg/kg with epi • Anesthetics work by blocking sodium influx in unmyelinated fibers • Upon administration of anesthesia, the loss of sensation or function occurs in the following order: temperature, pain, touch, pressure, vibration, proprioception, motor function • Peak epinephrine activity 5-10 min • Epinephrine toxicity manifested by tremor, increased heart rate, diaphoresis, palpitations, headache, increase in blood pressure, and chest pain • Peak activity 5-10 minutes • Max time to blanching 5-30 minutes • Epinephrine drug interactions: MAOI’s, tricyclic antidepressants, phenothiazines, propranolol, amphetamines, digitalis • Epinephrine contraindications: peripheral vascular disease, acute angle glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, pregnancy, severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease • Parabens in the anesthetic can cause allergic contact dermatitis • Buffered lidocaine contains one part 8.4% sodium bicarbonate solution and 10 parts lidocaine with epinephrine (less painful) • Alternative injectable anesthetic agents include promethazine, benadryl, and normal saline if allergic Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery  495
  8. 8. • Topical anesthesia: EMLA is an eutectic mixture of 2.5% lidocaine and 2.5% prilocaine; ELA- Max is composed of 4% lidocaine; unlike EMLA, ELA-Max does not need to be applied under occlusion to be effective, EMLA should not be used on infants younger than 3 months old because metabolites of prilocaine can form methemoglobin • Epinephrine prolongs duration of anesthesia and decreases lidocaine absorption allowing higher amounts to be used • Vasoconstriction takes 15 min to develop • Anesthetics work better in alkalin pH and increases onset of action15.3  ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS Table 15-3.

  10. 10. 15.5  WOUND HEALING Table 15-7. Chemical Mediators of Inflammation that Play a Role in Wound Healing Chemical Mediator Action Histamine Increase vascular permeability Serotonin Stimulate fibroblast prolif Kinins Increase vascular permeability Prostaglandins Increase vascular permeability, sensitize pain receptors, increase GAGs Complement Increase vascular permeability, increase phagocytosis, mast cells, and basophil activity Wound healing involves the following phases, which occur as a continuum 1.)Vascular phase – Occurs when the integrity of the skin is compromised. Involves an initial vasoconstriction followed by vasodilatation. Net result is the formation of a hemostatic plug. Platlets first cell to appear after wounding. Platlets release fibrinogen, fibronectin, PDGF 2.)Inflammatory phase (6 hours - 10 days) – Macrophages are the most important inflammatory cell in the wound healing process. They are the only cells which can tolerate low oxygen tension. They secrete factors that stimulate angiogenesis, wound debridement and collagen synthesis. Fibronectin is vital to healing. Produced by fibroblasts and endothelial cells • 6 hours-3 days: PMNS infiltrate wound, wound debride and bacterial ingestion • Day 6: Lymphocytes infiltrate wound 3.)Proliferative phase (24 hours - day 14) – Cells from the wound margin and the adnexa begin reepithelialization within the first 24 hours of injury. Fibronectin is believed to be important in this process. Occluded wounds will heal more rapidly because occlusion facilitates keratinocyte migration. Type III collagen is the first collagen to be synthesized in a wound. Then Type I later on. Fibroblasts synthesize collagen, elastin, proteoglycans. Newly formed connective tissue (1/2 collagen and 1/2 PG/glycosaminolycans) 4.)Wound contraction and remodeling (10 day - 1 year) – Tensile strength increases with time but never reaches more than 70-80% of the original strength of the skin prior to injury. Tensile strength is approximately 5% of its original strength at one week postoperatively and reaches 70% approximately 8 weeks after wounding. Contraction of wound greates from 5-15 days mediated by myofibroblast • Factors affection wound healing: Poor surgical technique (tension), vascular disorders, tissue ischemia, infection, topical meds (steroids), hemostatic agents (alum chloride), dry wounds, malnutrition, systemic diseaseCryotherapy • LN2: -196 or -320 F • CO2: -78.5 C • Melanocyte necrosis: -5 C • Keratinocyte treatment: -25 C • Treat Cancer: -50 C • Cryonecrosis: -25 C (benign lesion)498  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future

Subcutaneous tissue must be removed since the fat may compromise the viability of the graft. Typically, FTSGs are taken from the head and neck. A FTSG contracts by approximately 15% once removed from the donor site • A split-thickness skin graft (STSG) contains epidermis and variable amounts of dermis. The anterolateral thigh is the site most often used for STSGs - Thin: 0.008-0.012in - Medium: 0.012-0.018in - Thick: 0.018-0.028in Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery  501
  14. 14. • Composite grafts are made up of more than one tissue type, typically skin and cartilage. They are commonly used to repair ear and nasal ala defects. Composite grafts have the greatest metabolic demands of all types of grafts and therefore show the highest rates of failure • All successful grafts go through the following stages: 1.) Imbibition – For the first 48 hours the graft is sustained by plasma from the recipient bed, hyperemia 1-3 days 2.) Inosculation – On day 2-3 blood vessels in the graft establish connections with the wound bed 3.) Neovascularization – Ingrowth of new vessels into the graft occurs at approximately one week 4.) Maturation – Months post-grafting, sensory innervation occurs and the graft becomes paler • Exposed bone and cartilage are poorly vascularized tissues and are therefore not successful locations for graftingSecond Intention Healing • Concave sites: temple, medial canthus, conchal bowl, alar creaseTypes of Flaps • Compared with grafts, flaps offer the advantage of better color and texture match and the ability to be used to cover exposed bone and cartilage Advancement • Incisions are made on either side of the wound and extended in a parallel fashion. Tissue is then moved in a linear fashion to cover the defect • Examples include the O to T, A to T, island pedicle and postauricular flaps, H plasty, Burow’s triangle flap, V+H plasty, double island Rotation • Tissue is recruited from a distant site, rotated and then draped to cover the wound. Maximum tension of this flap is at the pivot. These flaps have a high survival rate because of their large pedicle • O to Z is an example of a rotation flap • Mustarde flap, back cut rotation flap, spiral flap, dorsal nasal flap or glabella turndown Transposition • Transposition flaps are designed to move over normal tissue to then cover the defect • All transposition flaps create secondary defects, which must be closed • Examples include the rhombic, paramedian forehead, bilobed, Z-plasty and nasolabial flaps, note (flag or banner) flaps • Z-plasty is commonly used in scar revision. Its main uses are to lengthen a scar and to reorient a scar • Staged forehead interpolation - Axial pattern flap Interpolation Flaps • Axial flaps which cross on intact, complete bridge of skin to fill a defect • E.g., Island flap (tunnels under skin) Paramedian forehead flap502  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future
  15. 15. 15.8  CHEMICAL PEELSKey Concepts • The degree of clinical improvement with chemical peeling is directly proportional to the depth of injury • Patients should receive prophylactic antiviral therapy prior to medium-depth or deep resurfacing • Superficial peels cause necrosis of the epidermis, medium depth peels cause wounding to the level of the papillary dermis while deep peels result in injury to the depth of the reticular dermis • Jessner’s solution is composed of salicylic acid, lactic acid, resorcinol and ethanol • Salicylic acid, 25%-30% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and 70% glycolic acid produce a superficial peel 35% TCA and combination peels produce medium depth ablation. TCA 50% and phenol peels produce deep ablation u TIP • All peeling agents have the potential to cause ahenol is cardiotoxic, nephrotoxic and hepatotoxic. P pigmentary alterations, milia and scarring. Patients must have cardiac monitoring during Prolonged erythema is a side effect most phenol peeling to detect cardiac arrhythmias commonly associated with phenol peeling a hemical peeling of the neck is generally avoided C • Baker-Gordon peel - 88% phenol, tap water, because of the risk of hypertrophic scarring croton oil, and Septisol. Croton oil most important for effiancy15.9  BOTOX AND COSMETIC FILLERSKey Concepts • Botulinum toxin (BTX) cleaves proteins (collectively called the SNARE complex) in the presynaptic neuron, which are required for the release of acetylcholine. Injection into the muscles of facial expression results in a chemical denervation of these striated muscles and thus a temporary paralysis • BTX-A (Botox) cleaves the SNAP-25 protein whereas BTX-B (Myobloc) cleaves the synaptobrevin protein of the SNARE complex • Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabellar rhytids and hyperhidrosis, however, reports in the literature have also shown efficacy in the treatment of crow’s feet, perioral rhytids, facial flushing, and contouring of enlarged masseter and gastrocnemius muscles  • Injectable bovine collagen products include Zyderm I, Zyderm II and Zyplast. They are composed of 95% type I collagen, 5% type III collagen, saline and lidocaine • Dysport (abobotulinum toxin A) is another botulinum toxin recently approved by the FDA for glabellar rhytids • Zyderm is used for superficial rhytides, while Zyplast is better for deeper furrows • 3-5% of the population reacts to bovine collagen, therefore two skin tests are performed at six weeks then at two weeks prior to the first collagen treatment • Artecoll is a permanent filler composed of nonbiodegradable polymethylmethacrylate microspheres, which are suspended in bovine collagen. Pre-treatment skin testing is required with Artecoll as with all bovine collagen injectables • CosmoDerm and CosmoPlast are bioengineered human-derived collagen products obtained from neonatal foreskin. They are comparable in performance to their bovine collagen counterparts and offer the advantage of obviating pre-treatment hypersensitivity testing Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery  503
  16. 16. • Radiesse is an injectable, biodegradable filler that is composed of uTIP calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. Calcium hydroxylapatite a n acute angioedema-type A hypersensitivity reaction has is a normal constituent of bone and thus can be seen on been reported with Restylane radiographic imaging, and can make collagen. Lasts 8-12 months, injection into the lip aboid lip area as can cause nodules • Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of human connective tissue. It binds water to create volume and plump the skin; its duration of action of approximately 6-12 months - 1 gram of HA binds 6 grams of H20; can cause blue nodules from Tyndall effect - Examples of HA are Perlane, Restylane, Juvederm, Prevelle Silk, Hylaform, and Hydrelle - HA is derived from the cok’s combs of domestic fowl or fermentation by streptococci bacteria • Restylane (hyaluronic acid) is a clear material, however, granulomatous foreign body reactions can occur and blue nodules may appear in the skin due to the Tyndall effect • Sculptra (called New-Fill outside of the U.S.) is a biocompatible, biodegradable injectable polymer of poly-L-lactic acid. It is FDA-approved for the treatment of HIV-associated lipoatrophy and facial wrinkles. Initial reports suggest that Sculptra may have a longer duration period than other currently available biodegradable fillers 3+ years.

Silicone is not currently FDA-approved for soft tissue augmentation. In addition to hypersensitivity reactions and product migration, granuloma formation can occur, even many years post-treatment15.10 PHOTOAGING AND COSMECEUTICAL REJUVENATION • Tretinoin is the gold standard in topical photorejuvenating agents. It normalizes epidermal atypia, increases dermal collagen deposition and increases new blood vessel formation • Topical ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been shown to increase the dermal production of collagen, reduce phototoxicity due to ultraviolet light and lighten hyperpigmentation • Sunscreen, PDT, chemical peeling, IPL • Glycolic and lactic acids (alpha hydroxyl acids) induce exfoliation of photodamaged skin and increase mucopolysaccharide and collagen synthesis which may improve the appearance of fine wrinkles • Beta-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) promote exfoliation of the skin by increasing epidermal cell turnover. They do not penetrate the dermis and therefore their effects are confined to the epidermal layer • Topical alpha-lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant that protects intracellular vitamin C and vitamin E. It is absorbed to the level of the subcutaneous fat and has been shown to diminish fine lines presumably through induction of collagen synthesis • Topical human growth factors (like transforming growth factor beta) causes epidermal thickening and new collagen formation • Peptides (argireline and copper peptides, for example) which biologically play a role in wound healing and enzymatic processes are emerging as novel treatments for photoaged skin due to their ability to increase collagen and elastin production and potentially influence neurotransmitter release • Niacinamide has been shown to reduce facial erythema, improve skin texture and hyperpigmentation and may also diminish fine lines504  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future

Selective thermal injury occurs when the target chromophore absorbs well at the wavelength of the selected laser, and when the time of laser exposure (the pulse duration) is shorter than the cooling time (thermal relaxation time) of the chromophore • The intense pulsed light (IPL) source is not defined as a laser since it neither has coherent light nor does it emit light at a single wavelength. The IPL emits non-coherent light within the 515nm-1200nm range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Clinically, this light source has found application in the treatment of vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, hair removal and nonablative dermal remodeling. IPL is also used for photorejuvenation and when combined with aminolevulinic acid, is an effective treatment for actinic keratoses • Ocular damage is a potential risk of laser treatment. The cornea is an aqueous structure and is particularly at risk for damage when using lasers whose target chromophore is water (carbon dioxide, erbium:YAG). The retina contains pigment and thus is susceptible to injury from lasers used to treat pigmented lesions • Thermage – a nonablative radiofrequency-based system which uses volumetric heating to induce tightening of the skin and dermal remodeling. Lipoatrophy is a potential late- occurring complication of this technology • Fraxel SR Laser: Fraxel SR is a new laser whose technology is based on the science of “fractional” photothermolysis. “Fractional” wound healing results in rapid reepithelialization and collagen remodeling. Treats photoaging, pigmentary and textural changes associated with photoaging Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery  505

If a tumor exhibits discontiguous growth, discrete foci may be missed and thereby lead to a false-negative pathology interpretation • Histologic sections are cut in a horizontal plane so that the total margin may be examined • Anticoagulants such as warfarin and aspirin (if u TIP medically indicated) should be continued during a ccepted indications for Mohs surgery include, A Mohs surgery. Aspirin taken for primary prevention but not limited to: recurrent tumor; aggressive can be discontinued in patients without prior histologic subtype; high-risk anatomic location (ear, lip) and tumor size (2cm). Tumors arising history of thromboembolic or cardiovascular events. in irradiated skin or in scars and tumors in immu- Nonpharmaceutical agents such as Vitamin E, nosuppressed patients are often indications for gingko biloba and ginseng have antiplatelet activity Mohs surgery and should be discontinued prior to surgery • Immunostains can be helpful during Mohs surgery. Cytokeratin 7 is a structural component of the cytoskeleton that stains poorly differentiated tumors of the epithelium and positively stains Paget cells. Melan-A is a melanosome-associated glycoprotein also known as MART-1 (melanoma antigen recognized by T-cells) that is present in 80% of melanomas. It does not reliably stain desmoplastic or spindle cell melanomas • Tensile strenth of wound 6 months after surgery is 70%; tensile strength never excees 80% of intact skin strength • 2 weeks after surgery 5-10% strength, 3 weeks 20%, 4 weeks 50% strength Table 15-11.

It is FDA-approved for the treatment of genital warts, actinic keratoses and superficial basal cell carcinoma in adults with normal immune systems. Eruptive epidermoid cysts are a newly reported side effect resulting from imiquimod treatment • 5-Fluorouracil (Efudex, Carac) is a topical chemotherapy which interferes with the synthesis of DNA by inhibiting thymidylate synthetase. It is FDA-approved for the treatment of actinic keratoses and superficial basal cell carcinoma • Rapamycin (also called sirolimus) is a macrolide antibiotic and a structural analog of FK 506. It is a potent immunosuppressive agent which inhibits mTOR (a member of P13K family kinases). Despite its immunosuppressive effects, preliminary data show a decreased incidence of skin cancer in organ transplant patients treated with rapamycin and postulate that it may exert a protective effect against cutaneous malignancies • Retinoids act chemopreventively by inducing apoptosis of tumor cells and by modulating the differentiation of keratinocytes. Acitretin has been shown to inhibit the development of skin cancers in organ transplant recipients and is an effective adjuvant therapy for patients who are actively developing large numbers of cutaneous malignancies15.15  COMPLICATIONS • Wound Infection: Sutures should be removed as they can serve as a nidus for infection. The wound should be cultured, irrigated and then allowed to heal by second intention. Antibiotics should be initiated • Hematoma formation will inhibit healing of a wound, prevent graft survival and serve as a source of infection. The sutured wound should be opened and the hematoma drained • Hypergranulation Tissue: If left in place, this tissue will serve as a physical barrier to epidermal migration. It may be removed mechanically with a curette and chemically with agents such as silver nitrate and trichloroacetic acid • Chondritis: Can develop when cartilage is exposed. May be prevented by instituting prophylactic antibiotics postoperatively • Trapdoor Deformity: Believed to be caused by insufficient undermining. May be treated with intralesional corticosteroids • Chronic Edema: Seen commonly on the lower extremities. May result from blockage or interruption of lymphatic drainage • Black Graft: If the epidermal surface of a graft becomes black and necrotic, it does not necessarily signify graft failure. The epidermal portion of the graft may slough with subsequent re-epithelialization. In this situation, the best treatment is observation • Motor or Sensory Loss: Severing of nerves during surgery can result in permanent sensory or motor loss as well as the development of painful neuromas at the site of the transected nerve. Injured nerves may regenerate but return of nerve function may take many months508  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future
  21. 21. • Contracture: Wound contraction is maximal approximately two months after re-epithelialization has occurred. Scar relaxation occurs three months to a year postoperatively and will lessen the final degree of contracture15.16  ON THE HORIZON • Isolagen: An emerging technology whereby a patient’s own fibroblasts are extracted, reproduced and then re-introduced into the patient’s treatment site • Phosphatidylcholine: A lecithin-derived phospholipid which induces lipolysis when injected into adipose tissue. Dissolution of fat is likely due to a detergent effect produced by the phosphatidylcholine • Aptos Subdermal Suspension Thread: A minimally invasive procedure which targets the ptotic changes seen with facial aging. 2-0 and 3-0 polypropylene threads are tunneled in the dermis to lift and suspend the skin and subcutaneous tissue • Resiquimod: The next generation of topical chemotherapeutic agents in the class of immune response modifiers. Researchers believe it is a more potent and specific immunomodulator than its predecessor imiquimod (Aldara) • Hyalite: (Puragen in Europe) a non-animal-derived hyaluronic acid. Its advantages are that it contains lidocaine and that its novel double cross-linking may confer a longer duration in action • S-Caine Peel: A novel topical 1:1 eutectic mixture of 7% lidocaine and 7% tetracaine which dries upon exposure to air to an easily peeled off flexible membrane. Preliminary studies have demonstrated adequate anesthesia is achieved for both laser and minor surgical procedures • PlasmaKinetic Rejuvenation: Plasma energy is used to produce radiofrequency fluences that are capable of both vaporizing tissue and sealing blood vessels. Plasmakinetic energy can be used in both nonablative and ablative modes. Preliminary clinical trials have shown improvements in fine wrinkles, skin tone, texture and hyperpigmentation • Photo-Pneumatic Technology: New technology which uses a broadband spectrum of light in combination with pneumatic energy. The anticipated benefits are decreased fluence requirements, epidermal protection and decreased patient discomfort • Electro-optical Synergy: New nonablative technology which blends optical and electrical radiofrequency energies that are simultaneously applied to tissue. Currently studied applications for this technology include hair removal, leg vein treatment and skin rejuvenation Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery  509
