Implants vs. Fat Grafting for Correction of Lower Face Monday, September 23 Mon, Sep 23 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Fat grafting has become an integral part of facelifting techniques. A wide variety of methods have been suggested to minimize the untoward effect of volume loss. However, no method appears to be fail safe.
Facial implants have taken a back door to fat transfer techniques but offer consistency and reliability in volume maintenance and surgical correction in many instances. Additionally, since a simultaneous facelift is being performed, the need for anesthesia is already present. Why are they used so infrequently?
At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the placement of facial implants at the time of facelifting;
- Describe the means of fat grafting to minimize resorption;
- Describe complications of both techniques.
