Write a 6 pages paper on facial reconstruction. Third is the measurement of the soft tissue thickness and marking of the anatomical locations (currently standard are 21 points). Finally, the landmarks are joined. spaces are filled in the lattice and model smoothed to produce a possible look of the deceased. There are both 2-D and 3-D manual and computer aided methods that support forensic facial reconstruction. Facial recreation are currently used for medical purposes and supporting legal issues in crimes and investigation, other than for retaining the historical memories of unknown past heroes from centuries ago.

The first ideas in the mind of unfamiliar people to the term facial reconstruction would be surgical operations to repair human faces. Such a need would be cosmetic purposes or to re-shape deformities of birth or accidents. Others especially in the fields of arts and law would relate the term to the identification of human remains using the skull. While some may view these two ideas differently, they are basically founded through a similar principle. It is possible to restore back the face of patient whose face has been severely disfigured in an accident, just like reconstructing the face of a deceased person based on the skull after the body’s decomposition over the years. The face has to be reconstructed through the available methods, before the reconstructive surgery is undertaken.
According to Miller, Vandome and McBrewster “forensic facial reconstruction is the process of recreating the face of an unidentified individual from their skeletal remains through an amalgamation of artistry, forensic science, anthropology, osteology, and anatomy” (2009, n.p.).
