It supports the face and is maintained by the skull, which itself encloses the brain.

Cheek

The cheeks (buccae) constitute the area of the face below the eyes and between the nose and the left or right ear.

Skull

craniumcranialhuman skull
The shape of the face is influenced by the bone-structure of the skull, and each face is unique through the anatomical variation present in the bones of the viscerocranium (and neurocranium).
It supports the structures of the face and provides a protective cavity for the brain.

Maxilla

The bones involved in shaping the face are mainly the maxilla, mandible, nasal bone and zygomatic bone.

Nasal bone

The bones involved in shaping the face are mainly the maxilla, mandible, nasal bone and zygomatic bone.
The nasal bones are two small oblong bones, varying in size and form in different individuals; they are placed side by side at the middle and upper part of the face and by their junction, form the bridge of the upper one third of the nose.

Hair

Also important are various soft tissues, such as fat, hair and skin (of which color may vary).
These include the face, ears, head, eyebrows, legs, and armpits, as well as the pubic region.

Facial trauma

Maxillofacial surgery may also be used in cases of facial trauma, injury to the face and skin diseases.
Facial trauma, also called maxillofacial trauma, is any physical trauma to the face.

Face transplant

Face perception

Face perception is an individual's understanding and interpretation of the face, particularly the human face, especially in relation to the associated information processing in the brain.

Facade

By extension, anything which is the forward or world-facing part of a system which has internal structure is considered its "face", like the façade of a building.
It is a foreign loan word from the French façade, which means "frontage" or "face".

Physiognomy (from the Greek φύσις physis meaning "nature" and gnomon meaning "judge" or "interpreter") is a practice of assessing a person's character or personality from their outer appearance—especially the face.

Prosopagnosia

face blindnessinability to recognize facesAssociative prosopagnosia
Specialized regions of the human brain, such as the fusiform face area (FFA), enable facial recognition; when these are damaged, it may be impossible to recognize faces even of intimate family members.
Prosopagnosia, also called face blindness, is a cognitive disorder of face perception in which the ability to recognize familiar faces, including one's own face (self-recognition), is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision-making) remain intact.

Mandible

The bones involved in shaping the face are mainly the maxilla, mandible, nasal bone and zygomatic bone.
One fifth of facial injuries involve a mandibular fracture.

Sense

The face is the front of an animal's head that features three of the head's sense organs, the eyes, nose, and mouth, and through which animals express many of their emotions. The face is itself a highly sensitive region of the human body and its expression may change when the brain is stimulated by any of the many human senses, such as touch, temperature, smell, taste, hearing, movement, hunger, or visual stimuli.

Emotion
