Pelle-Ceravolo M, Angelini M, Silvi E.
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery;139(2):10, February 2017

A single-surgeon study of 100 patients who underwent facial rejuvenation with a lateral access only for correction of anterior skin laxity and platysmal bands.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery;139(1):10, January 2017 

A multicenter retrospective case-cohort study pooled data from 1,197 patients at four major cancer centers and showed that exposure to fat grafting was not predictive for cancer recurrence.

Is Routine Pathologic Evaluation of Sebaceous Cysts Necessary?: A 15-Year Retrospective Review of a Single Institution.
Gargya V, Lucas HD, Wendel Spiczka AJ, and Mahabir RC.
Annals of Plastic Surgery;78(2):e1, Feb 2017 

A 15 year review of a single institution’s histologic database was conducted and identified 13,746 patients with a preoperative diagnosis of “cyst”. Of these, 48 were found to be malignancies, and in all cases the surgeon had a high suspicion for malignancy at operation. Authors conclude cysts should only be sent to pathology if clinical suspicion for malignancy exists.
