Anatomically, the face is the most complicated structure of the human body. Especially, the structure of facial muscles including nerves and vessels is very variable and has the racial differences. Recently, the importance on the facial anatomy has been reconsidered as the interest on the facial aesthetics is increasing. The aesthetic physicians and experts should understand the anatomy of the facial musculature. Through this basic anatomy course, we would like to share the basic anatomy of the face and neck and the individual variations of the face related to minimally-invasive procedures for the safe and efficient clinical applications.
