Numerous methods are described to treat midfacial aging. We compare two surgical methods aimed to improve the appearance of midface aging: the transtemporal midface lift (with lower lid skin pinch) and lower blepharoplasty with fat transposition in their ability to improve midface contour.

Current static reanimation of the midface fails to provide adequate functional and aesthetic improvement; there is a need for more effective static correction of the ptotic midface. Our objective here...
To determine the number of patients that received plain facial view radiographs as well as computed tomography (CT) scans in diagnosing their midface fractures.
Reconstruction of midface defects are extremely challenging owing to the lack of suitable vascularized local flaps. The temporoparietal fascia and temporalis muscle flaps make excellent choices for mi...
Successful aesthetic plastic surgery is devoid of both unsightly scarring and postoperative disfigurement. Patients undergoing midface-lifting surgery are very often disconcerted by an altered side ha...
The AMME syndrome defined as the combination of Alport syndrome, intellectual disability, midface hypoplasia, and elliptocytosis (AMME) is known to be a contiguous gene syndrome associated with microd...
This is a randomized, multi-center, evaluator-blinded, no-treatment controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Restylane Perlane Lidocaine for correction of Midface Volume Def...
This is a randomized, evaluator-blinded, no-treatment controlled study in subjects with Midface Volume Deficit and/or Midface Contour Deficiency.
This investigation aims to confirm the safety and effectiveness of Princess VOLUME PLUS Lidocaine in midface volume deficit augmentation and includes a long term safety followup.
The purpose of this study is to compare a pain block in the midface, versus the traditional, more invasive, therapeutic epidural patch for the treatment of headaches

An inherited condition characterized by multiple malformations of CARTILAGE and bone including CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS; midface hypoplasia; radiohumeral SYNOSTOSIS; CHOANAL ATRESIA; femoral bowing; neonatal fractures; and multiple joint CONTRACTURES and, occasionally, urogenital, gastrointestinal or cardiac defects. In utero exposure to FLUCONAZOLE, as well as mutations in at least two separate genes are associated with this condition - POR (encoding P450 (cytochrome) oxidoreductase (NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE)) and FGFR2 (encoding FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 2).
Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).

The inspection of one's own body, usually for signs of disease (e.g., BREAST SELF-EXAMINATION, testicular self-examination).
A raised flat surface on which a patient is placed during a PHYSICAL EXAMINATION.
A precursor of noradrenaline that is used in the treatment of parkinsonism. The racemic form (DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine) has also been used, and has been investigated in the treatment of orthostatic hypotension. There is a deficit of noradrenaline as well as of dopamine in Parkinson's disease and it has been proposed that this underlies the sudden transient freezing seen usually in advanced disease. Administration of DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine has been claimed to result in an improvement in this phenomenon but controlled studies have failed to demonstrate improvement.
