Adjunctive Liposurgical Debulking and Flap Dissection in Neck Reconstruction
Adjunctive liposurgical debulking and flap dissection in neck reconstruction.
J Dermatol Surg Oncol. 1986 Sep;12(9):917-20.
Closing the defect resulting from excision of a 50 X 55 mm malignant lesion on the posterior aspect of the lateral neck was accomplished by mobilization of the entire submental and submandibular neck skin utilizing liposuction surgery dissecting techniques. This is the first reported case using this relatively atraumatic surgical modality to dissect redundant skin for use in flap reconstruction.
