Complex forehead defects may result from excision of tumors or trauma. The reconstructive challenge is determined by the extent of tissue loss, the quality of the remaining tissue, possibly comprised vascular supply to the affected region, and special considerations (eg, exposed bone or injury to underlying structures). This paper describes a novel reconstructive approach to correct a complex forehead defect with exposed bone and discusses the armamentarium of reconstructive options for such cases.
