Augmentation/Reconstruction Implants, Facial, Chin/Mandible

Definition : Facial implants designed for augmentation and/or reconstruction of the mandible and/or chin. These implants are usually inserted in the soft tissue of the chin (e.g. anterior and/or pre-jowl sulcus segmentation) or mandible (e.g., lateral augmentation of mandibular angle) during plastic and/or reconstructive surgery; chin/mandible cosmetic implants typically consist of pre-contoured sections of synthetic (e.g., silicone) or less frequently biologic (i.e., autograft, allograft, or xenograft) materials intended to reproduce the desired external shape of the chin. They are intended to improve the physical appearance, to correct congenital abnormalities, or after illness or trauma.
