I am working on my MSc dissertation, investigating breast protection bras for female boxers. I am looking at their protection but also the fit and shaping of them and how this relates to their comfort during wear. Is there any sort of classification of the shape of women's breasts? How would I describe the natural breast shape?
In UK we use the term WAG to describe wives and girlfriends of footballers, and sometimes minor celebrities. Celebrities are those who have gone on big brother, love island...they don't have talent as such but are chosen as got hot bodies, or for big brother have personality disorders, or just crazy. WAGS get attention as living luxury lifestyle but identity formed in relation to partner, not her own skills and capabilities. Women are perceived as eye candy on arm of footballer. The housewives world franchise has popularized vacuous lives of rich women who do loads of plastic surgery and charity events. Do other countries have a term like WAG? What do you think of WAG? I greatly concerned as happening as we discuss issues of feminism and harassment.
Hi. I am currently working with new materials that should be tested on a scarified skin.
I am employing the widely-accepted wound model using the ventral surface of a rabbit ear, which was originally suggested by professor Mustoe. In brief, this model involves full thickness excision of rabbit ear skin and perichondrium, leaving the bare cartilage to heal itself and form a scar wound.
However, i am having some drawbacks. From some samples, the hypertrophy of the rabbit ear cartilage, rather than the dermal portion, is too prominent. This makes the analysis of the dermal portion very difficult.
My guess is that there had been some random microdamage to the cartilage portion during the removal of the perichondrium, but that leaves me no choice but to leave the perichondrium, which will accelerate the healing and make the wound UN-hypertrophic.
Is there a way to maximally prevent cartilage hypertrophy, but only achieve dermal hypertrophy using this model? Thank You.
I am a student from the University of Toledo working on a project. Would anyone from the field of orthopedics, sports medicine, plastic surgery, etc. be able to tell me how many of each type of joint injection you perform annually? These joint injections may include knee, shoulder, hip, wrist/hand, elbow or any other that I may not have mentioned. Also, I was wondering if you could share with me if you use any type of topical anesthetic before the procedure: ethyl chloride, other vapocoolant, numbing cream etc. Thank you so much for your time!

The specific area of fate regeneration I am referring to is the nasolabial folds. Imagine that you have a patient with a bodyfat percentage of 3% and not the typical nasolabial fold patient who has them due to being overweight. The area is very thin and has almost no fat in or around it. The "fold" to be treated is a fine line that is not in the skin but the fat, and the patient is young(as in 21-24). Could injecting prp in the creased area induct fat regeneration? I am talking about permanant results, as in repair or regenerating the fat, not temporarily hiding the lines while your time dwendles until the next injection date. I do not want to plump up the area or use prp as a filler. Do not suggest using fillers as they are an absolute disgrace to science and medicine.
As compared with autologous fat transfer breast auto-augmentation. Could these two techniques be combined ?
If you have any recommendations, I'd be grateful!
Especially actual case studies from Brazil, Korea, European countries, etc!
For those of you who don't know, there is a procedure called "SNIF", or sharp-needle-intradermal-fat graft. Here is a video for it, and a link to a pdf that details it in excellent easy detail.
From what I can understand and correct me if I am wrong, the ""SNIF" procedure is basically a dermal filler, not a fat graft. Is this correct? If so, then I have a few other questions.
First, when I see surgeons performing fat grafts into the nasolabial fold area, I see then go in through the upper lip with a cannula. I have given many manual liposuctions with different types of cannulas on the abdomen, and I know that technically, you could access the fat to be lipoaspirated from any point of entry. Of course there are places that are best, but if you had to, you could go in from (almost) anywhere.
IN the pdf, they say that a 23 gauge needle is used for injection. They also directly mention the nasolabial folds. They say that first, they fill it with "traditional lipofilling". What I want to know is, why can't this SNIF replace the "traditional lipofilling" that surgeons usually perform on the nasolabial fold area? Maybe not "replace", but you could graft fat into the nasolabial folds with a 23 gauge needle correct? Not as a filler, but as an actual fat graft that will take as a part of the patients face.
In other words:
Instead of using this snif type needle and point of entry for dermal filling, couldn't you technically graft fat into the nasolabial area (not just a dermal filler) and have that graft take as part of your facial fat?
If you had a patient that was just beginning to get the folds (as in early 20's, just barely visible), couldn't you solve this without going in through the lips? I think the answer is yes. You can access the subcutaneous fat via a 23 gauge needle, there is no need for anything else. I think by using the snif technique, you could do real lipofiling rather than just dermal filling.
Periodontal plastic surgery is the most challenging task a periodontal surgeon faces in his or her practice. Sometimes we are in a dilemma as to which technique to employ. It would be interesting to know the view points of others.
Routine change of dressing is done 24-48 hours after abscess drainage.
I would like to figure out differences in fatty tissues harvested from different sites (ie - Abdomen, thight, flanks). There might be a different composition of cells, but preliminarily we also found differences in receptors (insulin). The problem was, that these receptors kept changing very rapidly, according to nutrition status etc.
Any experience or suggestion for a more stable difference that could be detected?
