Case report: Reconstruction of the mid-face in an adult, after gangrenous destruction in infancy.

Abstract

We report a case of an adult mid-face reconstruction for a deformity occurring in infancy, using a Le Fort III advancement first to restore the contour of the skeleton. This was followed by a scalping forehead flap for the nasal reconstruction, and a fleur-de-lis Abbe flap for reconstruction of the lip and nasal vestibule.
