Differing Behavior of Facial Fat Compartments
A recent cadaver study of facial subcutaneous fat compartments provides insight as to how these different compartments behave following injection with soft tissue fillers, shedding light on the effects of aging. Authors Thilo L. Schenk, MD, PhD, et al, used 3D imaging and contrasting agents to identify subcutaneous fat compartments in 30 specimens. Their findings, which were confirmed through anatomical dissection, revealed seven bilateral distinct subcutaneous facial fat compartments (not including the three subcutaneous compartments of the forehead): superficial nasolabial, superficial medial cheek, superficial middle cheek, superficial lateral cheek, jowl, superficial superior temporal and superficial inferior temporal.
The researchers evaluated the facial compartments pre- and post-injection while the specimens were in an upright position using contrast-enhanced computed tomographic scanning, magnetic resonance imaging and 3D imaging. Following filler injections, they observed...
