Abstract

Adequate tumor resection and preservation of facial nerve function are the primary goals of the parotidectomy. However, this technique may lead to undesirable effects, including a concave facial effect, Frey syndrome, and prominent scar.

The aim of this study is evaluate the outcomes of facial symmetry and symptomatic Frey syndrome in patients having dermofat graft during superficial parotidectomy.

The incidence of symptomatic Frey syndrome was lower in patients who received dermofat graft and so was the facial asymmetry rate, but these differences were not statistically significant.
