Skin flap design has traditionally been based on geometric models which ignore the elastic properties of skin and its subcutaneous attachments. This study reviews the theoretical and experimental mechanics of skin and soft tissues (I) and proposes a mathematical model of skin deformation based on the finite element method (III). Finite element technique facilitates the modeling of complex structures by analyzing them as an aggregate of smaller elements. This paper gives the results of an animal… CONTINUE READING
