PMID:  12370653     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A simple method for closure of a defect in the forehead area by four parallel flaps along the forehead wrinkle lines is illustrated. The main advantage of this method lies in its simple design, which enables the surgeon to close large defects with no elevation of the eyebrow, while preserving the hairline, and most of the suture lines are parallel to the forehead wrinkle lines.
