Temporoparietal scalp free flap for upper-lip reconstruction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


There are many alternatives available for reconstructing full-thickness defects of the upper lip. In this article, the temporoparietal scalp free flap is discussed and the technique is reviewed in detail using a case study. The flap offers a long, reliable vascular pedicle, a good thickness match for the upper lip, minimal donor-site morbidity, and thick hair that forms an excellent mustache for scar camouflage, making it an excellent choice for one-stage reconstruction of the upper-lip defect in men.
