After being severely and quasi-plastically deformed, shape memory materials are able to return to their original shape at the presence of the right stimulus. After a brief presentation about the fundamentals, including various shape memory effects, working mechanisms, and typical shape memory materials for biomedical applications, we summarize some major applications in shaping tissue with shape memory materials. The focus is on some most recent development. Outlook is also discussed at the end of this paper.
