Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma is frequently observed on the lateral eyebrow, one of the most difficult sites for one-stage reconstruction because of its location close to the eyelids. The reconstruction of defects by the single-stage flap is advantageous for elderly patients because of its good functional and aesthetic outcome. We surgically treated three cases of squamous cell carcinoma on this area and performed reconstruction with a simply designed bilobed flap, all of which resulted in favorable outcomes. We therefore report on the usefulness of this reconstructive method for the lateral eyebrow defects.
