Step by step

Flap design

Skin

Identify

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

Mark

Mark the circular defect. Then draw a parallelogram. Depending on the direction of the flap add a line that turns one of the four corners into a trifurcation. Finally add a line to the parallel line on either side of the rhomboid. The flap should have roughly the same dimensions as that of the defect.
