Abstract

Facial reconstruction relies on the creativity of surgeons as well as a clear understanding in the properties of local flaps. Choosing the correct procedure begins with thorough analysis of the defect. Multiple reconstructive options often exist, which can then be narrowed and refined based on the specific qualities of the defect and the history of the patient. Careful planning ultimately leads to an excellent functional and aesthetic reconstructive outcome.
