ContourPlot3D: plot implicitly defined surfaces

Given two functions F=F(x,y;a,b) and G=G(x,y;a,b), the relations F(x,y;a,b)=0, and { G(x,y;a,b)=0 implicitly define another two functions x=x(a,b) and y=y(a,b). Suppose functions F and G are implicit and transcendental, it is cumbersome to get x and y simultaniously from F=0 and G=0. Is it possible to plot surfaces x=x(a,b) and y=y(a,b) according to F=0 and G=0 by means of ContourPlot3D? Any suggestion and advice will be appreciated. Jun Lin
