A correct and accurate preoperative planning is fundamental for reconstructive and plastic procedures in order to obtain functional and esthetic results. The aim of this study is to describe a prototype of a software dedicated to the visualization of a 3D model from one single patient. This kind of model, generated by the manipulation of MR images, can be used to simulate both the demolitive and reconstructive phase of the surgical procedures planned.
