512 Rhytidectomies: A Retrospective Study

512 Rhytidectomies: A Retrospective Study Abstract • A retrospective study of 512 rhytidectomy surgeries performed by one of us (F.M.K.) showed that the sequential technique and two-stage concept was used in most cases, with improvement in results noted when platysmal-superficial musculoaponeurotic system flaps were incorporated into the surgical routine. The majority of the patients were treated as outpatients; drains were rarely used. Statistical analysis of results and complications are discussed, as well as the aesthetic philosophy involved in this area of surgery. A comparison with other retrospective studies of this procedure is also given. (Arch Otolaryngol 1984;110:368-370) References 1. Kamer FM: Sequential rhytidectomy and the two-stage concept .

Abstract

Abstract • A retrospective study of 512 rhytidectomy surgeries performed by one of us (F.M.K.) showed that the sequential technique and two-stage concept was used in most cases, with improvement in results noted when platysmal-superficial musculoaponeurotic system flaps were incorporated into the surgical routine. The majority of the patients were treated as outpatients; drains were rarely used. Statistical analysis of results and complications are discussed, as well as the aesthetic philosophy involved in this area of surgery. A comparison with other retrospective studies of this procedure is also given. (Arch Otolaryngol 1984;110:368-370) References 1. Kamer FM: Sequential rhytidectomy and the two-stage concept .
