Fibromatosis is a histologically benign tumour of musculoaponeurotic
structures that can present in any part of the body.
Here the superficial musculoaponeurotic
system (SMAS) is thin buccal fat pad is minimum and nerve is located rather superficially.

the zone of weakness where structures pass from or to the abdominal cavity or where interstices occur between musculoaponeurotic
bands of surrounding trilaminar wall.
Salivary fistulae after a face-lift are caused by parotid injury due to the deeper dissection of the superficial musculoaponeurotic
Nasolabial island flap from the tip of nasolabial fold to the inferior border of mandible were bilaterally raised in the plane of the superficial musculoaponeurotic
system from both terminal points to the region of the central pedicle which was 1cm away from the corner of mouth (Figure 2).
Risk for facial nerve injury has been reported to be increased with the inclusion of superficial musculoaponeurotic
system (SMAS) elevation as compared with a skin-only face lift.
Desmoid tumors are a broad group of tumors that originate from musculoaponeurotic
structures throughout the body.
1-3) It is continuous with the galea aponeurotica (epicranial aponeurosis) at the superior temporal line and the superficial musculoaponeurotic
system below the zygomatic arch.
A thick sub-SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic
system) flap external to the parotid fascia is elevated as far anteriorly as required.
Among them are thick skin flap elevation, (2) fascia lata grafts, (4,5) dermal-fat grafts, (6,7) stemocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) flaps, (8-10) superficial musculoaponeurotic
system (SMAS) flaps, (1,11) and temporoparietal fascia flaps.
Imaging findings reported in the literature describe a poorly marginated transspatial enhancing mass in the soft tissue of the extracranial head and neck that arises from the musculoaponeurotic
