Materials of different allogeneic or xenogeneic or autologous origins are widely used as soft-tissue fillers or structural scaffolds in the field of cosmetic surgery, while complications including prosthesis infection, donor site deformity and filler embolization have always been difficult problems for plastic surgeons. The application of novel biomaterials may bring in hopeful solutions for these problems. Recently, some advanced biomaterials, such as regenerative biomaterials can effectively promote the repair of defective tissues, which have been proven to have good therapeutic as well as cosmetic effects in cosmetic surgery. Therefore, biomaterials with active compounds have drawn significant attention for the tissue regeneration of reconstructive and esthetic treatment. Some of these applications have achieved better clinical outcomes than traditional biological materials. This review summarized recent progress and clinical applications of advanced biomaterials in cosmetic surgery.
