Abstract

A new flap for cheek reconstruction is presented. It is a medially based axial pattern flap that is elevated on the SMAS or including the SMAS and thus is of good thickness and stability for coverage of even large defects of the cheek without significant contour irregularities. It is planned like a traditional transposition flap and harvested in such a way that the scar of the secondary defect lies under the edge of the mandible and, thus, on the border between two aesthetic units and along the relaxed tension lines. The donor site scar is aesthetically acceptable.
