Defect in the Medial Canthus

A medial defect can be repaired with an Imre cheek rotation flap combined with a rotation flap from the forehead (see Figs. 5.2-5.8).

Fig. 8.5 Modified Imre flap. The scar is located in the alar groove.

Fig. 8.7a, b Imre cheek rotation combined with a small forehead flap to repair a defect involving the cheek and medial canthal area (see Figs. 5.2-5.8; see also Fig. 8.2).
