|Disharmony between the skeletal support and the soft tissue envelope is a common cause for aesthetic concerns on the lower face. Loss of volume or genetically small mandible affect the aesthetic and function of the mouth, chin and neck.
Due to their limitations for correction of these problems with current implant designs made of silicone or porous polyethylene, I have developed an implant system and a method to restore the entire mandibular volume. I call this: "Mandibular Matrix Implant System"
This implant system is
made of high density porous polyethylene and is composed of an
articulated wraparound geniomandibular chin implant and a wraparound
gonial angle implant. A prejowl implant can be integrated in the
system as an addition or a replacement to an implant. This implant
system has different sizes and projections and can be modified
by carving to fit the requirements of most patients. This is done
with the guide of the appropriate sizer. The implant system is
