The modiolus labii structure and morphology in the adult

The modiolus labii structure and morphology in the adult

A dissection of ten different hemifacial preparations (all of them male adult persons) was made in order to get a detailed description of the morphology and structure of the modiolus. It thickness was about 5.1 mm, and its diameter about 17.8 mm. It is formed by seven muscles: zigomaticus major, levator anguli oris, depressor anguli oris, platysma, risorius, orbicularis oris and buccinator.

The mentalis muscle (MT) is the only elevator of the lower lip and the chin, and it provides the major vertical support for the lower lip. However, there are few reports on the relationship between the MT and its surrounding muscles. The aim of th...
