What are the lines of Dolan?
- They are three anatomic contours best seen on the Waters view (occipitomental view )of the face, and they were first popularized by Dolan et al.
- As you can see, the 3 lines of Dolan lead the eye along some facially important structures.
- Lee Rogers pointed out that the 2nd and 3rd lines together form the profile of an elephant.
