  Lateral Rounding Scale
innovation line
Release of Lower Eyelid RetractorsStudy that demonstrates role of the lower lid retractors in maintenance of lower eyelid position.   Lateral Rounding ScaleScale designed to measure the rounding near the lateral canthus.
 
Costal Cartilage Warping
innovation line
  Botox Pore Reduction
innovation line
costal catilage warpingStudy determined that more warping occurred in eccentric group or cartilage than the concentric group, leading to innovation in costal catilage carving.    Botox Pore ReductionInnovative technique for making large pores more refined with the use of Botox.
 
Vector Alignment in Bilobe Flap
innovation line
  Tortuosity
innovation line
Vector Alignment in Bilobe FlapThis study suggests that secondary defects aligned perpendicular to the nostril have the least amount of alar distortion.   TortuosityInnovative measure to radiographically measure the amount of septal deviation.
