A standardized method of surgical dismantelling of the face for access to the periorbital area is described in detail. Its use in 11 patients with periorbital tumors is described and illustrated by selected case reports. It was concluded that many tumors in the periorbital area that previously were considered inoperable with craniofacial disassembling techniques can be adequately treated without sacrificing eyes or mutilating the face.
