portada - Aesthetic Plastic Surgery - Vol. 41; No. 2 (2017)Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is an uncommon T-cell, CD-30+/ALK lymphoma. Late (9 years) periprosthetic fluid (seroma) is the most common presentation (90% of the cases). A combination of textured breast implant, bacterial contamination, and genetic predisposition seems to be necessary for BIA-ALCL to occur. There are 35 million patients with implants in the world, and at the present moment, 573 cases of BIA-ALCL have been reported.

portada - PRS - Vol. 132; No. 2 (2013)The link between breast implants and systemic disease has been reported since the 1960s. Although many studies have looked at either supporting or refuting its existence, the issue still persists and has now been labeled “breast implant illness.” The rise of patient advocacy and communication through social media has led to an increasing number of presentations to plastic surgeons. This article summarizes the history of breast implants and systemic disease, critically analyzes the literature (and any associated deficiencies), and suggests a way forward through systematic scientific study.

portada - PRS - Vol. 132; No. 2 (2013)Hyperpigmentation following ultraviolet irradiation has cosmetic concerns. Botulinum toxin type A can favorably affect skin pigmentation. However, the mechanism of skin pigmentation is unclear.
Recent clinical reports have suggested favorable effects of botulinum toxin type A on skin pigmentation. In one study, three patients treated with repeated botulinum toxin type A injection developed porcelain discoloration of the periocular skin.

The segmental paraspinous and intercostal blood vessels form the blood supply and represent the pivot point for the reverse latissimus dorsi flap.
Aim of this study was to confirm the exact location of the blood supply and the most caudal pivot point to assess the suitability of the reverse latissimus dorsi flap for pedicled reconstructions of the trunk as well as sacral area.
