Many attempts have been made to measure and compare the changes in the facial surface brought about by facial reconstructive surgery. Three-dimensional (3-D) analyses have largely consisted of qualitative descriptions rather than a quantitative treatment of these changes. Until recently, the lack of availability of 3-D data for the face and head has limited the advancement of these techniques. However, with 3-D information readily available from a laser scanning system which we have constructed… CONTINUE READING
