Abstract

The authors describe the combination of simple techniques to correct a complex surgical defect of malar area, nasolabial fold and ala of nose. The subcutaneous hinge flap restores the anatomic contour and enables the use of a simple flap or graft for reconstruction of the skin surface. Hinge flaps are an excellent alternative to more complex interpolated flaps for reconstruction of central facial surgical wounds.
