Below are images derived from a cone beam CT (CBCT) scanner following a patient consultation. In this case, the patient desired to correct the asymmetry in her lower jaw, as well as create a more defined chin and more prominent cheek bones. Bespoke facial implants were designed to provide these skeletal changes, which would be reflected in the contours of her soft tissue envelope.
The image in the upper left hand corner shows the “before” or preoperative appearance of the patient’s soft tissue envelope. The image in the upper right shows the patient’s underlying skeleton.
