This article reviews some of the phenomena associated with tissue expansion that are amenable to study with 3D imaging and presents selected cases from the literature where the technology has been used to answer clinical questions and plan procedures. The authors discuss implant selection, remodeling, contraction, and 3D analysis. Future directions and limitations of the use of this technology in the head and neck are also described.
