Head And Neck Reconstruction 06Back To Head And Neck Reconstruction Gallery
This patient had a craniotomy to remove an intracranial tumor followed by therapeutic radiation. The cranium collapsed creating a deformity in her right temple and scalp. She had an attempt to correct the defect, which was not successful, most likely due to tissue damage from radiation. She subsequently had repair with fat grafting. The patient is shown at left before fat grafting, and at right over two years after repair of the defect with one fat grafting. The patient claimed that her hair also grew back after the fat grafting.
