Abstract

Today an increasing number of patients seek aesthetic improvement through minimally invasive procedures, and interest in soft tissue augmentation and filling agents is rising steadily. However, a thorough understanding of these substances, their indications and contraindications, as well as a profound knowledge of different implantation techniques is essential to provide an aesthetically pleasing result for the patient. This presentation gives an overview of the current injectable biomaterials, their major indications, advantages and disadvantages, with focus on collagen, hyaluronic acid, poly- l -lactide, and autologous fat grafting.
