In cranio-maxillofacialsurgeryphysicians are often faced
with the reconstruction of massively destroyed or rad-
ically resected tissue structures caused by trauma or
tumours. Also corrections of dislocated bone fragments
up to the complete modeling of facial regions in cases
of complex congenital malformations are common tasks
of plastic and reconstructive surgeons. With regard to
the individual anatomy and physiology, such procedures
have to be planned and executed thoroughly in order to
achieve the best functional as well as an optimal aesthetic
rehabilitation. On this account a computer-assisted mod-
eling, planning and simulation approach is presented that
allows for preoperative assessment of different therapeu-
tic strategies on the basis of three-dimensional patient
