  • The upper or lower boundary of a circular defect is extended in a semi-arc shape with lateral cutting direction. After undermining the flap, which tapers at an acute angle, it is transposed into the defect by rotation and displacement. At the end of the lateral incision, a contralateral Burowsche's triangle ( displacement flap plastic, transversal) can be excised as required.
  • Indications: Cheek, axilla, dorsal trunk area, sole of the foot.
