Special Issue Introduction

The face skeleton includes 14 facial bones (6 paired and 2 unpaired) with specific anatomical landmarks and embryological development. These bones include the paired inferior nasal conchae, nasal bones, maxillae, palatine bones, lacrimal bones and zygomatic bones, as well as the unpaired mandible and vomer. Aesthetic surgery of the facial skeleton may involve augmentation, bone reduction by contouring, or repositioning of bones by means of osteotomies. It will achieve optimal results and high patient satisfaction.

It is a multi-disciplinary method for auxiliary procedures for facial skeletal contour and enhancement results. In this fast-changing field, it needs to refer to all the latest progress of plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, and craniofacial surgeons.
