|Dissection of the Face|
Carefully remove the skin to expose the muscles of facial expression, facial nerve, parotid gland and duct, facial artery, and superficial temporal artery.
Reflect the masseter muscle on one side only. Use the other side for dissection of the superficial face.
Reflect the temporalis muscle to expose the infratemporal fossa.
Remove the lateral pterygoid muscle to expose the branches of the maxillary artery and mandibular nerve.
