Abstract

Deepithelialized flaps and grafts have been widely used by reconstructive surgeons in a diverse array of surgical specialties and have more recently made an appearance in dermatologic surgery. These techniques may be advantageous in their enabling of contour preservation of deep defects, reconstructions in areas of high mechanical tension, single-stage repairs, auricle reconstruction requiring tissue transfer, and reconstruction requiring free margins in areas with a paucity of local soft tissue. This article provides a review of the literature on deepithelialized flaps and grafts. We also highlight the use of these techniques in the field of dermatology and encourage appropriate application of deepithelialized flaps and grafts in dermatologic surgery.
