Abstract

Summary

Scars on the face ‘eclipse’ patient social life and provide challenge for the treating surgeon. ‘Forehead’ is difficult area on face to re-construct because of the inelastic, relatively immobile skin and subcutaneous tissue. The surgical correction of scar depends upon the site, size, type of scar and general condition of the patient. We describe an innovative approach to treat a depressed, de-pigmented, irregular scar placed vertically in the centre of forehead, in a young girl.
