• For approximately ten years I have been using polyamide mesh as a filler material in facial plastic surgery, particularly in augmentation rhinoplasty, for saddle-nose deformity, and in augmentation mentoplasty. The results in this series of 130 patients have been extremely good, probably better than can be obtained with any other type of alloplastic implant material or even with any autogenous graft.
