Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Cutaneous head and neck reconstruction following Mohs micrographic surgery frequently presents the surgical dilemma of dog-ear formation during wound closure. Z-plasty corrects a dog-ear deformity without skin excision by recruiting tissue from the axis of the standing cone and redistributing it along another. We describe dog-ear correction using the Z-plasty technique.
