The Public Face of Rhinoplasty: Impact on Perceived Attractiveness and Personality

Lu, Stephen M.; Hsu, David T.; Perry, Adam D.; et. al.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 142(4):881-887, October 2018.

Crowdsourcing was used to rate standardized before and after photographs of female rhinoplasty patients.  A total of 264 responses were obtained, with the photographs being rated on a number of different traits.  Not only were post-rhinoplasty patients rated higher in aesthetic factors such as youthfulness, attractiveness, and symmetry, but they were also rated significantly higher in personality factors such as intelligence, trustworthiness, and approachability.  An interesting study that underscores how poorly we understand the effect aesthetic surgery can have on public perception.




Pain Management After Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery: A Prospective Randomized Double-Blinded Trial Comparing Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, and Oxycodone

Asif M. Ilyas, Andrew J. Miller, Jack G. Graham, and Jonas L. Matzon

The Journal of Hand Surgery.  Volume 43, Issue 10, October 2018, Pages 913-919

A prospective double-blinded randomized trial, similar to others in the orthopedic literature, compared oxycodone, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen for postoperative pain managment following open and endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery.  Oxycodone was not found to be superior for pain control, with the average worst daily pain scores in the open group for the oxycodone, ibuprofen, and acetominophen groups being 3.4, 2.5, and 2.3, respectively.  The authors conclude that ibuprofen or Tylenol should be the recommended postoperative pain medication following CTR.
