Facial feminization surgery was pioneered in the 1980s to provide options for trans women who were having difficulty with their outward appearance. This process presented a novel application of craniofacial surgery at the time. This text outlines the basic differences between male and female facial morphology, as well as the procedures we use to feminize the face.
Bariatric surgery is an established treatment for obesity, but knowledge on the long-term incidence of revisional surgery is scarce.
The objective of this study was to document trends in the performance of open arterial vascular surgery procedures (OAVP) by general surgery residents (GSR).
The aim of this study was to compare postoperative positional changes in the mandible after isolated mandibular surgery (IMS) or bimaxillary surgery (BMS) in a surgery-first approach (SFA).
With the emergence of new concepts and new technologies, the mode of diagnosis and treatment of thoracic surgery in China has changed greatly. Under this background, Chinese thoracic surgery ushered in its "golden age" . This paper expounds the new challenges of thoracic surgery in China from many aspects, and points out that with the advent of precision medicine and modern science and technology, thoracic surgery will continue to develop rapidly. We should seize the opportunity, further expand our advantag...
Cosmetic surgery tourism is thriving. Lower costs and all-inclusive cosmetic surgery holiday packages have led to more patients seeking cheaper aesthetic surgery abroad. However, limited postoperative care results in patients frequently presenting to NHS hospitals with postoperative complications requiring surgery.
Dr. Gordon F. Murray was the 44 president of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and a distinguished member of this profession. He had a major influence on surgery as both Chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at West Virginia University. An advocate of resident education, he served on the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and the Residency Review Committee, and was President of the Thoracic Surgery Directors Association.

Surgery of biliary malignant tumors is highly related to the liver and pancreas. The "Liver and pancreas oriented" characteristics are unavoidable challenges when formulating surgical strategies. In the development of minimally invasive surgery for biliary malignant tumors, a comprehensive understanding of the pattern of the biliary surgery can make innovation possible. Both the bleeding prevention in hepatectomy and the exposure in pancreatic surgery are the core of minimally invasive surgery for biliary m...
Surgical scar length is a common concern among patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS).
Bariatric surgery is one of the most common general surgery procedures in countries that, like Spain, have public healthcare systems, but is also one of the procedures for which patients have to wait the longest. The Spanish Society of Obesity Surgery (SECO) conducted a survey to estimate the situation of bariatric surgery waiting lists in Spain's public hospitals and to gather information on a number of related aspects.
Robotic technology aims to obviate some of the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery, yet the role of robotics in colorectal surgery is still largely undefined and varies with respect to its application in abdominal versus pelvic surgery.
Despite extensive counseling, patients commonly call with postoperative concerns after Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS).
Bariatric surgery is associated with a reduced risk of developing certain malignancies, particularly in women. However, the impact of bariatric surgery on tumor characteristics, cancer treatment, and oncologic outcomes is unknown.
Minimally invasive surgery has been considered as an alternative to open surgery by surgeons for colorectal cancer. However, the efficacy and safety profiles of robotic and conventional laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer remain unclear in the literature. The primary aim of this review was to determine whether robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RAS) has better clinical outcomes for colorectal cancer patients than conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS).
To study the role of nasal surgery as a part of multilevel surgery for management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Immunosuppression is often considered as an indication for antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent surgical site infections (SSI) while performing skin surgery. However, the data on the risk of developing SSI after dermatologic surgery in immunosuppressed patients are limited.
Spinal surgery is taught and practiced within two different surgical disciplines, Neurological Surgery (NS) and Orthopedic Surgery (OS). This article provides a unified analysis of academic productivity measured by h-index attributable to spine-focused faculty at U.S. residency programs.
Surgery in neutropenic patients is challenging due to both atypical manifestations of common conditions and higher perioperative risk. We sought to describe the outcomes of neutropenic patients undergoing abdominal surgery and to identify factors contributing to morbidity and mortality.
Bariatric surgery has been an alternative when conservative methods of weight loss fail. Patients undergoing bariatric surgery have an increased risk of up to 6.5% of problems related to alcohol.
Waiting for hip fracture surgery is associated with complications. The objective of this study was to determine whether waiting for hip fracture surgery is associated with health-care costs.
The da Vinci single-site platform has been applied in many fields of surgery, but use of this single-site platform in thoracic surgery has not been reported. The aim of this study was to report the author's experiences and surgical outcomes with robotic single-site surgery in the field of thoracic surgery.
Bariatric surgery is endorsed by multiple societies as the most effective treatment for obesity. Psychosocial functioning has also been noted to improve for most patients after bariatric surgery. However, some studies have shown an increase in post-operative suicide risk. The aim of this study was to review the published literature and evaluate the association of bariatric surgery with suicide events and suicide/self-harm attempts in patients who have undergone weight loss surgery.
The American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) is the major educational organization for dermatologic surgery in the United States. Presidents are elected annually from among their members.
