Materials used for dorsal augmentation basically are divided into alloplastic materials and autologous materials.

The most common alloplastic materials for dorsal augmentation are silicone (Silastic), and Gore-Tex (Fig. 4.1). Selection of the implant type depends on each doctor’s choice. Table 4.1 lists some advantages and disadvantages of each type.
