Pawel Rzymski, MD, PhD, Miko³aj Kubasik, MD, Izabela Rzymska, PhD, and Maciej Wilczak, MD, PhD begin by discussing Shear Wave Sonoelastography, a means of studying tissue stiffness. The use of Shear Wave Sonoelastogrpahyin has been previously reviewed in regards to cancer, however here the authors discuss, instead, its applications in plastic surgery. Next, Yolanda K. Zayakova, PhD deliberates on breast symmetry and the surgical approaches one could use to attain it. Then, Cristina Gómez, MD and Bernardo Hontanilla, PhD discuss capsular contracture, a complication that can arise from the use of silicone implants. Lastly, Diana Zuckerman, PhD, Madris Tomes, and Amelia Murphy consider whether or not “gummy bear” breast implants are safer than traditional implants. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
