Abstract

Augmentation of the craniomaxillofacial region is required for many esthetic and reconstructive procedures. Although a variety of different materials and techniques have been described, coral-derived hydroxyapatite granules (HA), which are biocompatible with bone, seem to be the ideal material. In the past 25 years, we have observed HA granules to be a safe, stable, easy to use, and cost-effective material that can provide the exact shape and size of the area to be augmented. Complications are few, and the technique is simple and quick. This study is an update of our previous articles studying HA granules as an augmentation and reconstructive material. This material has been proven to be an effective tool in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
