Management of Facial Asymmetry with Combination of Orthognathic Surgery and Autologous Fat Transfer. CS Chang, CG Wallace, YC Hsiao, YJ Wang, KT Chen, YR Chen.

Date: April 2017. Source: Cosmetology & Oro Facial Surgery, Volume 3 • Issue 1 • 1000114. Clinical Image: A pan-facial approach is usually best when aiming for a harmonious aesthetic facial outcome. Addressing both skeletal and soі tissue components of the face with simultaneous orthognathic surgery and autologous fat transfer, respectively, satisfies this concept. Facial […]
