Article
IntroductionStriae distensae (SD) appear clinically as parallel striae, lying perpendicular to the tension lines of the skin. SD evolve into two clinical phases, an initial inflammatory phase in which they are called “striae rubrae” (SR) and a chronic phase in which they are called striae albae (SA). Fibroblasts seem to play a key role in the patho...
Thesis
Les Vergetures ou Striae distensae (SD) se manifestent cliniquement sous forme de stries parallèles, perpendiculaires aux lignes de tension de la peau. Les SD évoluent en deux phases cliniques, une phase inflammatoire initiale ou striae rubrae (SR) et une phase chronique ou striae albae (SA). Les fibroblastes semblent jouer un rôle clé dans la path...
Article
Background and objective Quality of life preservation after anti-cancer therapy is a major challenge for breast cancer survivors. Approximately 42–70% of patients who receive systemic therapy for breast cancer, including endocrine therapy, will develop vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA). For these patients, the commonly proposed gel-based treatments for to...
Article
Immediate vaginal reconstruction is usually offered following pelvic exenteration for recurrent cervical cancer in women previously treated with radiotherapy or with severe radiation-induced fistulae. Introduction of muscle-sparing flaps, such as the pedicled vertical deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap, provides viable tissues for vagi...
Article
Background Hyaluronic acid (HA) injections involve a risk of vascular complications. Transillumination (TL) is a noninvasive technique that appears to allow preliminary detection of superficial vascular structures of the face to avoid intravascular HA injection. The purpose of our study was to test the efficacy of TL in terms of its sensitivity to...

Article
Background and Objective Striae distensae (SD) are cutaneous lesions that often occur on the breasts, abdomen, hips, and thighs. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a new technique using a non‐invasive Er:YAG laser combined with Spatially Modulated Ablation (SMA) module for the treatment of SD. Study Design/Materials and Meth...
Article
Objective: Approximately 50% to 70% of breast cancer survivors are affected by one or more symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA). For those who cannot take hormone therapy, autologous platelet-rich plasma combined with hyaluronic acid (A-PRP-HA) may provide a new alternative therapy for the treatment of VVA in postmenopausal women with history of...
Article
Background: Facial burn outcomes are often difficult to treat. Residual scars represent a problem for aesthetic and functional concerns as well as for patient's social and psychological life. Autologous fat graft can be used in the treatment of burn outcomes, providing a sensitive improvement in the quality of the burned areas. The aim of our repo...
Article
Introduction Anatomical variability of anterolateral thigh flap (ALT) perforators has been reported. The aim of this study is to assess if the use of intraoperative indocyanine green angiography (iICGA) can help surgeons to choose the ALT flap best perforator to be preserved. Patients and methods A retrospective study was conducted in 28 patients...
Article
Background and objectives: Breast-conserving surgery and skin-sparing mastectomy are nowadays widely accepted as the standard of care in selected patients with early breast cancer. After an accurate review of the literature, it appeared that no ordered list of the numerous techniques described for conservative breast surgery has been established s...
Article
Determining which facelift procedures yield the most long-term rejuvenating effects and stability over time is an important question in cosmetic surgery: does radical and invasive surgery produce the most long-lasting results? The experience of our team suggests that using a combination of various techniques (liposuction, lipectomy, myotomies, susp...
Article
Background: All the labia minora reduction techniques fail to treat the other component of the abnormally increased labia minora to majora ratio: the labia majora atrophy.

Article
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is currently used in maxillo-facial, plastic, orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery to improve tissue regeneration and wound healing. To date its use in microsurgery has not been described yet. We advocate that for its property, PRP could improve flap survival. Platelet activation leads to their degranulation and in situ...
Article
The goal of adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to autologous fat graft is to increase the survival rate of the graft. After their activation, platelets release some important growth factors. As a result, PRP may increase the proliferation and differentiation of Adipose-derived Stem Cells (ASCs) into adipocytes, improve fat graft vascularisation, and...
