Dr. Joseph Rousso’s article titled, "Practical Considerations in Adopting New Technology for Facial Cosmetic Procedures," was recently published in the Facial Plastic Surgery medical journal on December 24, 2020. Facial Plastic Surgery is a well-respected journal that publishes topic-specific issues covering areas of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery as it relates to the head, neck and face. The journal's scope includes issues devoted to scar revision, periorbital and mid-face rejuvenation, facial trauma, facial implants, rhinoplasty, neck reconstruction, cleft palate, facelifts, as well as various other minimally invasive procedures. In the article, Dr. Rousso goes into depth on how the field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery encompasses both surgical and nonsurgical facets, creating a supplemental level of care and an additional layer of complexity. He details how a basic and practical method of analyzing a new technology requires investigating the risk-to-benefit assessment, the utility and clinical outcomes compared with other treatment options and an introspective ethical appraisal of whether the technology is foremost for patient care purposes. He further explains how even after employing a new technology, constant monitoring and reevaluation of the results is necessary to determine if it should be continued or altered.
