At the annual meeting of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Surgical Techniques and Devices Committee sponsored a panel presentation on the current status of soft implants. The panel members were Harry Mittleman, MD, Mark Rubin, MD, and Russell Kridel, MD. The panel was moderated by Richard L. Goode, MD. Soft implants are defined as implants for the correction of facial rhytids and deeper depressions that can either be injected or surgically inserted and remain soft and flexible after placement.
