Bilobed Flap

This Bilobed Flap course will teach you:

  • The Bilobed Flap:  a transposition flap. The main objective of this procedure is to close the defect while maintaining the functionality and esthetics of the area. The Bilobed Flap is especially useful following nasal skin reconstruction after excision of a benign or malignant lesion. One advantage is that the Bilobed Flap transfers excess skin to the recipient site from a more distant site than a single lobe flap.

With the following tips you might perform the Bilobed Flap even better:

  • Marking the Bilobed Flap
  • Trilobed flap
  • Creating extra space

After studying the Bilobed Flap course you are familiar with the most common complications:

  • Flap failure

Skin

Identify

Identify the resting skin tension lines and the lines of maximal extensibility. This will pre-determine where to place your markings.

Mark

Mark the defect and determine the pivot point. Draw a straight line from the pivot point to the beginning of the lesion and use this point to start your circle. Continue the straight line to the end of the lesion and start a second circle, this is the height of your second lobe.
