Special Issue Introduction:

The new technology and new materials can promote its rapid development in one field. New materials play a significant part in the field of plastic and reconstructive research, which always is a hot topic. In order to accomplish the different needs for various patients, there still is plenty of work to be done. As an associate Editor of PAR, recently we would like to organize one special issue “Applications of Biomaterials in Plastic and Reconstructive Research”, aiming to let more experts read the new findings easily and know the new trend of this field timely to make patients more satisfying. Research should be related to materials with basic and clinical studies in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
*Novel materials and biomaterials in guided plastic and reconstructive surgery (such as wound dressings, skin fillers, reconstruction or soft tissue defect fillers and fixed materials).
*The basic research on materials and biomaterials in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
*Novel biomaterials for skin, cartilage or musculoskeletal tissue engineering.

Keywords:

Biomaterials, tissue engineering, bioscaffolds, drug delivery, regeneration, reconstructive surgery

  • Early experiences with the use of Earfold™ for correction of prominent ears

    Bernd W. Schuster
    Aim: This paper describes the author’s personal experience with using the minimally-invasive Earfold™ implant. Methods: The author inserted the Earfold™ implant into 19 patients (5 men, 14 women) between November 2016 and June 2018. Bilateral implantation was performed in 14 patients. In 5 cases, implantation was limited to one ear. The author’s main indication for treatment was a helical-mastoid distance of more than 20 mm. Additional antihelixplasty of the upper ear was performed in 4 patients (2 primarily and 2 after explantation). One patient underwent simultaneous treatment of... Read more

  • Projection capacity assessment of hyaluronic acid fillers

    Jérémie Bon Betemps , Francesco Marchetti , Tingsong Lim , Basste Hadjab , Patrick Micheels , Denis Salomon , Samuel Gavard Molliard
    Aim: Hyaluronic acid (HA) is considered as the gold standard biomaterial for facial soft tissue correction. Over the last 8 years, there has been a strong demand from physicians for HA products with high projection capacity to restore facial volume loss at the level of the cheeks, cheekbones, chin, temples and jawlines. The projection capacity is thus an essential property for HA fillers especially for the products dedicated to the restoration of the volume of the face. Methods: In this publication, a new skin model assay for evaluating the projection capacity of HA fillers is presented,... Read more

  • Key rheological properties of hyaluronic acid fillers: from tissue integration to product degradation

    Samuel Gavard Molliard , Jérémie Bon Bétemps , Basste Hadjab , David Topchian , Patrick Micheels , Denis Salomon
    Aim: Over the last 15 years, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have become the most popular injectable biomaterial for soft tissue correction. With the increasing number of available HA fillers and the multiplication of facial treatments all over the world, there has been a need from physicians to better understand the HA fillers science. There is especially a growing interest in the science-based evaluation of rheological characteristics which represents an essential tool to guide physicians in the selection of the most appropriate HA fillers, administration techniques and depths of injection...

  • Hyaluronic acid: a versatile biomaterial in tissue engineering

    Zhu Zhu , Yin-Min Wang , Jun Yang , Xu-Song Luo
    The design and application of hyaluronic acid (HA)-based scaffolds to control cell response and construct ideal tissue engineering products have been of great interest in the past few decades. This review provides an overview of the biological properties of HA to better understand how to engineer a cell-scaffold composite that is qualified in tissue engineering; important tissue engineering applications of HA including cartilage tissue engineering; and lastly, the problems of the current research on HA. All the data described above were collected and analyzed from PubMed, EMBASE and Medline. Read more
