The Effect of Malar Augmentation

In the case study below, both patient and surgeon reported a good satisfactory outcome directly post-operatively and at the six-month follow-up.


Step 1

The orange area is the mismatch when compared to the contralateral side. The surgeon marked in black the extent that he wanted to repair. The white contour is the final implant that was made.

Step 2

This is a colour-difference map showing the change in contour, i.e. an augmentation of 1mm to 3mm across the region of interest.
