Knowledge of facial anatomy is indispensable for dermatologists and plastic surgeons practicing aesthetic medicine, especially for those using fillers, as injection of fillers may be associated with serious complications such as vascular occlusion and blindness. Angiosome and choke vessels play an important role in vascular incidents occurring after filler injections. The objective of this article was to outline the anatomy and pathophysiology of choke vessels, a concept which is not well known to dermatologists.
