Abstract

Reconstruction of forehead and scalp defects is challenging. A thorough understanding of the anatomy and dissection planes of the scalp is essential. The ability to use a variety of techniques will allow the facial plastic surgeon to maximize functional and aesthetic results. Techniques such as tissue expansion and free tissue transfer and flaps used for covering exposed bone are useful adjuncts for optimal results.
