The pegs are used as an estimate of how thick the tissue is on a certain area of the face. Then they build muscle/skin/fat over the top of the pegs to the correct thickness. They estimate thickness based on gender, age and race. For example, most white females in their 20s have a similar amount of tissue that covers their face (assuming they are of average weight).

Saw that on an episode of MacGuyver, I think, like 30 years ago.

Was just gonna say this! Maybe more than 30 years ago: and the technology is exactly the same.
