Contour enhancements of the midface make up a dominant aspect of aesthetic surgery. The goal of midface rejuvenation is to decrease the prominence of grooves and creases as well as to provide volume to atrophied tissue. There are various options, including autologous tissue grafts, allogenic tissue grafts and alloplastic materials. In turn, patients needs have led to an increasing trend of less invasive treatments. In the present study, 82 implants were used for midface augmentation in 41 patients (38 women, 3 men) between January 2014 and January 2016. Twenty-five patients were treated with Hyaluronic acid implants while the remaining 16 patients were treated with lipofilling. For both groups and in all cases, good integration of the filled material was observed in the malar region, with no significant treatment complications and the last follow-up visit demonstrated good results and overall satisfaction. Hyaluronic acid fillers and lipofilling are therefore the ideal answer to patients who aim for a natural and immediate result with manageable complications, but, unlike Hyaluronic acid, autologous fat allows us to obtain a long-lasting effect over time, resulting the closest thing to an ideal facial filler.
