CASADO SANCHEZ, C. et al. Anatomical dissection of the mimic facial musculature: iconographic review as a support to the complementary treatments in facial rejuvenation. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.1, pp.91-96. ISSN 0376-7892.
To value the multiple technologies involved in facial rejuvenation and focusing in those minimally invasive complementary procedures to the usual Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeries, it´s very important the exhaustive knowledge of the muscular structures involved in the facial movements. To such an effect, an anatomical study has been realized in fresh corpses, dissecting the principal above-mentioned structures. We present an iconographic summary of the facial implied muscles, emphasizing in his descriptive and functional anatomy, as well as a recollection of the principal problematic areas for some special circumstance (presence of a sensory or motor nerve).
