Technical Strategies – The Postauricular Sulcus Incision for Temporal Implants

Temporal implants offer a permanent solution to numerous aesthetic deformities/ deficiencies of the entire temporal region. Standard temporal implants were developed to treat the non-hair bearing anterior temporal region which is always the most visible. Both subtotal and total temporal implants exist for this area. Traditionally anterior temporal implants have been placed through a small Read More…

Technical Strategies – Maximal Superior Otoplasty Repositioning

Otoplasty is a generic term for ear reshaping of a variety of aesthetic deformities. In its most classic use it is a term specifically for setting back the protruding ear using different suture techniques of cartilage reshaping/repositioming done through a postauricular approach. It decreases the auriculoephalic angle by creating a more defined anti helical fold, Read More…

Technical Strategies – Submental Vertical Chin Reduction

Chin reduction poses challenges that other facial bone reductions don’t. Because it is a projecting structure with a tight soft tissue pad attachment, consideration must be given to what will happen to the ‘extra’ soft tissue once the bone is reduced. In addition the chin reduction technique used can also have an influence on the Read More…

Technical Strategies – Intraoral Placement of the Midface Mask Implant

Aesthetic augmentation of the midface is historically done by standard implants such as that of the cheeks, paransasal, premaxillary and tear troughs. While these can be effective for proving volume to ‘spot’ deficiencies, their use is more limited in patients that have an overall midface deficiency. While using various combinations of these standard midface implants Read More…
