Abstract: This paper presents an improved biomechanical model for the prediction of the soft tissues in the plastic surgical simulator. The new model is built on nonlinear finite mixed-element method (NFM-EM) in which the internal soft tissues (muscles and fat) are discretized into tetrahedral solid elements and the skin tissues into triangular shell elements, which distinguishes between the internal soft tissues and the skin in their geometrical structures, and addresses the nonhomogenous problem of the facial soft tis… Show more
