Presentation Type: Speech
Abstract: Facial reconstruction relies on the creativity of surgeons as well as a clear understanding in the properties of reconstructive options. The reconstruction of defects created from the treatment of cancer can be extremely challenging based on endless variability in location, size and depth. Choosing the correct procedure begins with thorough analysis of the defect. Multiple reconstructive options often exist, which can then be narrowed and refined based on the specific qualities of the defect and the history of the patient. Careful planning ultimately leads to excellent functional and aesthetic reconstructive outcome. This presentation attempts to synthesize major principles into a guide with which to approach cancer reconstruction and to explain my experiences in this field in last 10 years.
