Abstract

In repairing cutaneous defects, the facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon is faced with many specialized areas of tissue. Reconstruction of thin eyelid skin and thick, sebaceous nasal skin requires different methods. The unique characteristics of the scalp make it one of the greatest repair challenges in the head and neck region, sometimes requiring multiple different reconstructive techniques for the same defect.
