Excerpt

Facial contour reconstruction is commonly used by surgeons to improve aesthetics and functionality in patients with deformities. The use of allograft dermal matrix (ADM), also called acellular dermal matrix (AlloDerm), has been well described in the scientific literature since the early 1990s.1 Here, the authors report the use of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) fold flap and ADM repair of the parotid bed to improve the cosmetic outcome and prevent the occurrence of Frey's syndrome.2 This study assessed the reliability of ADM in the restoration of facial contour deformities after benign tumor ablation and in patients with Parry–Romberg syndrome.
