Dermatologic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco.

After Mohs micrographically controlled removal of a recurrent squamous cell carcinoma, a 6 X 7-cm defect of the temple was closed with a large cheek and neck flap elevated and mobilized by blunt liposuction cannula dissection techniques and rotated into the defect. An excellent cosmetic and functional result was obtained.
