AbstractAfter the repair of large defects of the lower lid and the infraorbital region using larger flaps without adequate support, retractions of the lower lid may be observed due to the weight of the flap. In this study, the authors’ aim is to present the outcome of the repairs they performed on large defect areas in the lower lid and the infraorbital region using cheek flaps suspended by a dermofat flap.The method was performed on 7 patients between 2011 and 2015. Among the patients, 4 were…

A Horizontal V-Y Advancement Lower Eyelid Flap
The lower eyelid is covered with remarkably thin skin, and for the repair of defects, especially after removal of basal cell carcinomas, it is preferable to avoid using tissues coming from another facial area, or a full-thickness skin graft, which can leave a patch-like appearance.

Use of temporalis fascia in eyelid reconstruction.
A temporalis fascia sling hammock can be used to support the reconstructed eyelid, and this static suspension assists in maintaining proper globe apposition to the eyelid and in preventing sagging of the reconstructed structures.
