While there are many possibilities for the reconstruction of a soft tissue defect, not all are equivalent.
Education and experience are the best teachers with regard to which technique is best for a particular patient’s defect. This app provides a useful beginning to the educational portion and experience over time will guide you forward. This app is not an encyclopedic or exhaustive review of every possible flap that has ever been used.
Rather, in this app the authors have taken a pragmatic approach to the reconstruction of these defects and as such have attempted to outline commonly used techniques that yield consistent and reproducible results. They have emphasized the techniques and procedural aspects of this discipline providing step by step illustrations of the techniques. We hope that you will find the text helpful and that it contributes to your success as a facial soft tissue reconstructive surgeon whether you are still in residency training, beginning your practice or are a seasoned veteran in the operating room.
