Furthermore, lipo contouring provides a versatile tool in the facial surgeon's arsenal to achieve the desired facial profile. In 2020, approximately 15.5 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States alone. <strong>Objective:</strong> A systematic review was carried out on the main clinical results, presenting studies on the risk of bias, and the advances in facial and cervical liposculpture as an important aesthetic tool for the dental surgeon. <strong>Methods:</strong> The rules of the Systematic Review-PRISMA Platform were followed. The search was carried out from November 2021 to February 2022 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. <strong>Results:</strong> 64 articles were found involving liposculpture. A total of 32 articles were fully evaluated and 14 were included and developed in the present study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment did not result in significant risk of bias studies. The Funnel Plot showed symmetrical behavior. Twenty-five studies did not meet the GRADE. Most patients who were involved in the studies showed improvements in facial augmentation and contouring. In patients with loss of facial volume, high-density fat transfer with the facial injection of SVF-gel resulted in significantly higher improvement scores and better patient satisfaction. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> According to the main clinical studies selected in the present study, cervicofacial liposculpture proved to be safe and effective. In patients with loss of facial volume, high-density fat transfer with a facial injection of SVF-gel resulted in significantly higher improvement scores and better patient satisfaction. Still, the results of the studies showed that the level of self-confidence and mental health-related quality of life can be significantly improved after facial lipofilling treatment.</p> Júlio Leal Villela Garcia, Vanessa Rodrigues do Prado Garcia, Sandro Marcelo de Moraes Valente Copyright (c) 2022 MedNEXT Journal of Medical and Health Sciences https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://mednext.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/mednext/article/view/172 Fri, 13 May 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Case report on the localized cutaneous leishmaniasis: intralesional treatment with meglumine antimoniate https://mednext.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/mednext/article/view/173 <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Leishmaniasis is a contagious disease endemic in Brazil, transmitted by a vector, and its installation and form of presentation depend on the immunological status, location, and type of transmitted protozoan. <strong>Objective:</strong> A case report of a patient with localized American tegumentary leishmaniasis. <strong>Method:</strong> Reviews of medical records, analysis of photographic records of diagnostic tests and the evolution of the treatment to which the patient was submitted and literature review were carried out.<strong> Case Report:</strong> An 85-year-old woman, with a history of a single lesion on the 4 cm right forearm, with raised borders, ulcerated and clean bottom, subcutaneous edema, local pain and heat, pruritus, bloody secretion in small amounts, and no systemic symptoms. The same did not show improvement with the use of ointments (dexamethasone, neomycin, ketoconazole) and lasted for 2 months. The diagnosis of leishmaniasis was confirmed and treatment with intralesional meglumine antimoniate was carried out, with the application of 3 injections with an interval of 15 days. <strong>Final considerations:</strong> The case reported and the studies surveyed reveal the importance of the new treatment route and show that, although the approach requires specific conditions, such as being a single lesion, it courses with fewer adverse effects, lower cost, and greater safety.</p> Yasmin Gomes Lourencini, Mariana Perassa de Siqueira, Maisa Fugita Maekawa, Lívia Buqui Mazzoni, Arthur Marcelino Vilches de Almeida, Pedro Custódio D’Amico, Lucas Henrique Sartori Pereira, Talitha Tonini de Oliveira Copyright (c) 2022 MedNEXT Journal of Medical and Health Sciences https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://mednext.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/mednext/article/view/173 Fri, 13 May 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Registration of facial liposculpture protocols: technique article https://mednext.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/mednext/article/view/174 Sandro Marcelo de Moraes Valente Copyright (c) 2022 MedNEXT Journal of Medical and Health Sciences https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://mednext.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/mednext/article/view/174 Fri, 13 May 2022 00:00:00 +0000
