Description

Satisfactory forehead reconstruction can be accomplished by microsurgical free tissue transfer. Basic principles of forehead resurfacing include: (1) replacement with similar quality soft tissue as a well-defined complete aesthetic unit, (2) establishment of the hairline 5-6 cm above the eyebrows, and (3) use of adjunctive procedures to enhance the aesthetic result. We have found the radial forearm flap and the groin flap to be excellent flaps for achieving this goal.
