Abstract

The skin and subcutaneous tissue is an intricate and dynamic network with many key components contributing to its overall structural and functional integrity. Precise knowledge of the individual components that make up this vital organ as well as the manner by which they interact with one another is a critical tool for the cutaneous surgeon. This chapter explores the deep subcutaneous structures of the head and neck including motor and sensory nerves, muscles of facial expression, soft tissue structures (fatty layers and fascia), mucosa, and bony and cartilaginous skeletons.
