Special Issue Introduction
Fountain of youth has always been the dream of mortals since the ancient time. Since ages ago, mortals have always been searching for ways to look and stay young. In the new millennia, retaining a youthful appearance is no longer a dream beyond reach. The advancement in medical technology, especially in the dermatological technology, has made the dream of youth possible. The new technology and new materials can promote their 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. To satisfy the different needs for various patients, there is still plenty of work to be done. As an Associate Editor of PAR, recently we would like to organize one special issue “Biomaterials for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery”, 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.
KeywordsBiomaterials, tissue engineering, bioscaffolds, drug delivery, regeneration, reconstructive surgery
