When maxillofacial surgery is proposed as a treatment for a patient, the type of osteotomy and its influence on the facial contour is of major interest. To design the optimal-surgical plan, 3D image-based planning can be used. However, prediction of soft tissue deformation due to skeletal changes, is rather complex. The soft tissue model needs to incorporate the characteristics of living tissues.
