Modiolus: dynamic angular stone of the nasolabial fold

Modiolus: dynamic angular stone of the nasolabial fold The modiolus can be compared to an angular stone because the shape of the nasolabial fold (NLF) is related directly to its structure. However, as the modiolus has also a dynamic function, all of its motions during life finally determine the fixed form of the NLF. The fold varies from person to person, from a long convex to a short concave form and it always turns up and around the modiolus. The modiolus is a complex structure composed of panniculus musculofibrosis incorporated deeply with the fold muscles of Rubin. These are the lateral and superficial dermal terminations of the modioli muscles. As with muscles, these structures can be more or less trophic and, when well developed, the modiolus is a guarantee against aging in the inferior half of the face. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

The modiolus can be compared to an angular stone because the shape of the nasolabial fold (NLF) is related directly to its structure. However, as the modiolus has also a dynamic function, all of its motions during life finally determine the fixed form of the NLF. The fold varies from person to person, from a long convex to a short concave form and it always turns up and around the modiolus. The modiolus is a complex structure composed of panniculus musculofibrosis incorporated deeply with the fold muscles of Rubin. These are the lateral and superficial dermal terminations of the modioli muscles. As with muscles, these structures can be more or less trophic and, when well developed, the modiolus is a guarantee against aging in the inferior half of the face.
