U016 - The ART (Advancement, Rotation, Transposition) of Flaps

Friday, March 1; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • 1) Discuss the application of regional flaps including principal design concepts.
  • 2) Identify vital steps to each flap to optimize outcomes.
  • 3) Effectively utilize these flaps given a certain defect and understand their limitations.

Description

The geometry and science behind flaps can be learned in a textbook. However, with the combination of tissue dynamics and unique facial features, precise execution of flaps is the “art” of dermatologic surgery. Each flap contains small nuances and tricks that are often not presented in the literature but key to flap movement and optimizing the aesthetic outcome. In the ART of Flaps, our aim is to demonstrate these finer points and ways the audience can finesse their own flaps including flap design, flap movement characteristics and perioperative technique.
