Abstract

Eyebrows play an important role in face expression and facial mimics by virtue of muscle contraction. Defects or deformity of the eyebrows result in abnormal facial expressions, and may lead to aesthetic issues for patients. The objective of this study is to report the case of a patient, with a congenital skin pigmented nevus at the right side of the eyebrow treated with direct surgical resection and followed by immediate reconstruction of the eyebrow with a V-Y advancement pedicle flap based on the orbicularis oculi muscle.
