This lack of information, particularly about an iatrogenic malignancy, created anxiety in the public and the media. Unfortunately, there have been a few scientific manuscripts published in a respected plastic surgery journal in the English language about a unique or specific technique of a cosmetic surgery procedure for Asian patients. A total of 10 articles have been carefully selected. The new technology of high-resolution ultrasound and breast implants is presented. All manuscripts have been published between and and represent the latest advances in aesthetic surgery with topics ranging from techniques for sculpting and harvesting fat, to practice-based recommendations, to reshaping, to suture techniques and to issues related to massive weight loss. While there may be no one definitive way to mark every patient, we hope this collection will stimulate learning and discussion on how to improve surgical markings and ultimately, results for our patients. It is a topic that we as physicians and surgeons need to come to grips with before legislators and lawyers become further involved in the practice of medicine.

And perhaps most important of all, long term results from clinical trials are presented; this data dispassionately reveals the areas in which we must do better for our patients. The thoughtful surgeon will recognize these as the critical areas of interest for matured surgical procedures. Over the last decade, plastic surgeons have witnessed an increase in demand for aesthetic interventions from male patients. The new technology of high-resolution ultrasound and breast implants is presented.
