Title: Longitudinal photogrammetric analyses of the soft tissue facial features among Hong Kong adolescents

Abstract: Facial appearance greatly impacts one’s psychological well-being. Soft tissue facial analysis emerged in the 1900s, but it remained overshadowed by standardized cephalometric analysis. Until the1950s, it regained vitality since its irreplaceable role in orthodontic treatment planning was re-emphasized. Photogrammetric facial analyses have been performed among a variety of ethnics including Anatolian Turkish, North Americans, and Han Chinese, etc. However, most of these current studies are performed in adults and cross-sectional in nature. The present study aims at investigating the longitudinal growth changes of facial features among Hong Kong adolescents.In this seminar, a thorough literature review will be given first to highlight the current research status; then, the materials and methods of the present study will be introduced; finally, expected outcomes and their implications will be presented
