This work presents a novel approach for the physically-based optimization of individual implants in cranio-maxillofacial surgery. The proposed method is based on solving an inverse boundary value problem of the cranio-maxillofacial surgery planning, i.e. finding an optimal implant shape for a desired correction of soft tissues. The paper describes the methodology for the generation of individual geometrical models of human head, the reverse finite element approach for solving biomechanical boundary value problems and two clinical studies dealing with the computer aided design of individual craniofacial implants.
