Computerized soft-tissue simulation can provide unprecedented means for predicting facial outlook pre-operatively. Surgeons can virtually perform several surgical plans to have the best surgical results for their patients while considering corresponding soft-tissue outcome. It could be used as an interactive communication tool with their patients as well. There has been comprehensive amount of works for simulating soft-tissue for cranio-maxillofacial surgery. Although some of them have been realized as commercial products, none of them has been fully integrated into clinical practice due to the lack of accuracy and excessive amount of processing time. In this chapter, state-of-the-art and general workflow in facial soft-tissue simulation will be presented, along with an example of patient-specific facial soft-tissue simulation method.
