There are often situations that require the correction of facial defects. Local fasciocutaneous flaps provide a reasonable option for reconstruction of facial defects with good colour and texture match and good success rate. Among the various options of local flaps is the use of a rotation flap.
The aim of this work is to demonstrate the reliability of the rotation flap in the correction of facial defects and its ability to achieve a good aesthetic outcome by applying the knowledge of facial aesthetic units.
This is a case report of a 28-year-old woman who suffered an avulsion injury to the face with loss of facial tissue resulting in exposure of the left zygomatic bone. The defect measured 5 cm × 6 cm. A rotation flap was used to cover the defect after the wound had been previously irrigated and debrided. Her wounds healed well. She suffered no facial nerve injury. The rotation flap resulted in a good colour match with no disruption of facial contour.
