Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between change in the structural and color components of the face of patients suffering from head and neck cancer following reconstructive surgery.
Results: The observed correlation coefficient (0.594) was statistically significantly different from zero (p = 0.046). Changes in the structural components due to reconstruction following surgery are correlated with those in color components. This result suggests that facial models that simultaneously embody models of change in the structural and color components of the face may effectively capture modifications due to oncologic and reconstructive surgery.
