The onlay fascia-cartilage graft technique for malar or maxillary projections can be used for recontouring the middle third of the face. Covering onlay grafts with fascia achieves a smoother contour, concealing the edges in addition to obtaining a more natural anatomical look for the face. The technique has provided a predictable and permanent method of augmenting malar or maxillary projections, and it has produced good aesthetic results.
