Abstract

Temporal indentations are the most impacting craniofacial complication after coronal flap dissection. It is mainly due to a temporal fat pad or temporalis muscle dissection. Because of the great improvements achieved recently in CAD-CAM-aided surgery and the possibility of performing accurate pre-surgical virtual planning, it is now possible to correct it with a customised virtual approach. Furthermore, advancements in material science have allowed surgeons to rely on biocompatible materials like PEEK (showing a low complication and recurrence rate) for the manufacturing of patient-specific implants. We hereby describe our experience on a case of secondary and corrective surgery after a fronto-orbital remodelling, in which we used PEEK implants designed by CAD and optimized by finite element modelling.
