Malar augmentation using autogenous materials.

Author information

University of Miami School of Medicine, Florida.


A variety of methods are available for malar augmentation using autogenous material, and the choice of procedure will depend on the indications presented by each particular case. The ability to produce a smooth natural contour without the need for concern of late problems is a decided advantage to the use of autogenous tissue. We have presented a compendium of available methods, demonstrated clinical examples and described a new technique, which, because of its simplicity, will certainly find further applications. A new method developed by Paul Tessier for malar augmentation is also described.
