Abstract

A recent national survey suggests that up to one-third of facial reconstructive and plastic surgeons do not adhere to the classical principle of subunit reconstruction. While single-stage flaps and grafts may be easier and less time consuming, they can also lead to a poor cosmetic outcome. Here, the authors describe how the authors repaired a complex post-Mohs surgery facial defect involving multiple cosmetic subunits and how adherence to the subunit principle was essential to obtaining the most optimal functional and esthetic outcome.
