It is this paper’s intention to review the concept, research, clinical applications, and the advantages and disadvantages of prefabricated flaps. Prefabricating a flap is a technique that allows non-axial flaps to be connected to axial flaps. The usual adopted methods include transplanting the vascular axis into a donor site that does not have a defined vascular supply or transplanting the flap onto a richly vascularized area. The basic theories of prefabrication have been proven experimentally, and the clinical application of this concept has been satisfactory. Moreover, studies that focus on using allogenic vascular transplantation, alloplastic materials, bioengineering, as well as combinations of these methods have begun.
