We are reaching the holy grail of facial bone augmentation. There now exists a 3D printed custom calcium phosphate material that your body will convert into real actual living bone over time.

THIS TECHNOLOGY WILL ACTUALLY ALLOW US TO LEGITIMATELY INCREASE FACIAL BONE MASS.

Furthermore, once the bone mass is augmented, and it is converted into real bone, you could even have the surgeon move your muscle insertions/origins to where they would be had you been born with that bone mass, thus changing the facial dynamics more completely.

We could legitimately build up our zygos to normal levels or augment our mandibular angles into strong masculine jaws, and it would be 100% for real.


Quote:
Patients requiring skeletal augmentation, for example those with facial asymmetry resulting from either trauma or congenital defects, would be helped best with a bony implant made to match their anatomy. Typical bone augmentation implants are made from alloplastic materials (like PEEK or titanium) or the patient’s own bone is cut and repositioned. CT-Bone is a bone-like customized implant that can be 3D printed and is converted to real bone by the patient.

After taking a CT-scan of the patient, a patient-specific implant is designed by our biomedical engineers in collaboration with the surgeon. This design perfectly fits on the anatomy of the patient, ensuring good bone-to-implant contact and facilitating bony ingrowth. The design is 3D printed in calcium phosphate, the main constituent of natural bone. The 3D printing process has a very high accuracy, resulting in implants that fit perfectly onto the bone of the patient, as designed. Even very complex shapes and designs can be 3D printed; for example 3D printing enables the production of implants with engineered (controlled) porosity, similar to natural bone. When implanted, CT-Bone unifies with the patient’s own bone in the next months.

From CT-scan to 3D model to patient-specific implant design


Unlike other 3D printed ceramics (like Hydroxyapatite or Beta-TCP), CT-Bone does not require a thermal process (sintering) to increase mechanical strength and therefore also displays better bony fusion (sintering increases crystallinity which adversely affects biodegradability). Sintering also causes shrinkage of ceramics which results in a non-optimal fit. Since CT-Bone does not require sintering it displays better bony fusion and is dimensionally stable, so it keeps a perfect fit.

Other manufacturing methods typically produce random porosity, whereas the process of 3D printing allows complex shapes and 100% interconnected porosity.

CT-Bone is brought to you by Xilloc in collaboration with Next21 (Tokyo, Japan) and will be available in the coming months.

Bruh this is the ultimate way to get facial symmetry. Now you don't have to be embarrassed by a plastic implant fucking up at age 50.

No bone mass for your NCT.

But simulating gonial eversion looks promising.
