BACKGROUND: Facial hemiatrophy, a typical manifestation of Parry-Romberg syndrome, produces massive face asymmetry, causing marked aesthetic damage and severe psychological discomfort, with repercussions to the psychophysical status of the patient. This article presents a successful combined treatment that results in resolution of symptoms and patient satisfaction. METHODS: The authors proposed a clinic-therapeutic management comprising a customized program of bio-lipo-intense pulsed light (IPL) remodeling. RESULTS: In 2007, at a 1-year follow-up visit, the patient presented a stable result. She is satisfied with the augmentation treatment, the new volume and contours of the face, and the resolution of the sclerosis and ochrodermia. CONCLUSION: The authors have succeeded with a minimally invasive reconstructive technique for Romberg disease using a customized therapeutic program of poly-L-lactic acid, lipofilling, and IPL therapy. They report a case of good healing without recurrences and complications, with a good cosmetic result, and with satisfaction of the patient.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Facial hemiatrophy, a typical manifestation of Parry-Romberg syndrome, produces massive face asymmetry, causing marked aesthetic damage and severe psychological discomfort, with repercussions to the psychophysical status of the patient. This article presents a successful combined treatment that results in resolution of symptoms and patient satisfaction. METHODS: The authors proposed a clinic-therapeutic management comprising a customized program of bio-lipo-intense pulsed light (IPL) remodeling. RESULTS: In 2007, at a 1-year follow-up visit, the patient presented a stable result. She is satisfied with the augmentation treatment, the new volume and contours of the face, and the resolution of the sclerosis and ochrodermia. CONCLUSION: The authors have succeeded with a minimally invasive reconstructive technique for Romberg disease using a customized therapeutic program of poly-L-lactic acid, lipofilling, and IPL therapy. They report a case of good healing without recurrences and complications, with a good cosmetic result, and with satisfaction of the patient.
