Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery theme issue highlights work from Asia

July 19, 2010

Advances in facial plastic surgery that originated in Asia can benefit patients elsewhere in the world, according to an editorial in the July/August issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. This theme issue of the journal focuses on research from this part of the world.

"Facial plastic surgery in Asia is built on the same scientific foundations as the specialty in North America," write Joseph K. Wong, M.D., F.R.C.S.C., of Advanced Aesthetic Surgery Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and Wayne F. Larrabee Jr., M.D., of University of Washington, Seattle, and editor of the Archives, in the editorial. Surgeons in China and other part of Asia have studied in North America and Europe, and are forming their own collaborations and programs. "Patients around the globe should benefit from this shared knowledge. We are proud that the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery can contribute to this goal with our theme issue."

Articles in the issue focus on:
  • Cultural norms and other concepts in aesthetic evaluation
  • Revisions to double-eyelid procedures
  • New techniques and materials to augment the nasal dorsum and tip
  • Complications of procedures to lengthen the nose
  • Techniques to repair constricted ears

What If?
There's plenty of speculation about what Donald Trump might do in the wake of the election. Would he dispute the results if he loses? Would he simply refuse to leave office, or even try to use the military to maintain control? Last summer, Rosa Brooks got together a team of experts and political operatives from both sides of the aisle to ask a slightly different question. Rather than arguing about whether he'd do those things, they dug into what exactly would happen if he did. Part war game part choose your own adventure, Rosa's Transition Integrity Project doesn't give us any predictions, and it isn't a referendum on Trump. Instead, it's a deeply illuminating stress test on our laws, our institutions, and on the commitment to democracy written into the constitution.
