PMID:  1493534     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In repair of macrostomia, many authors have used a Z-plasty to prevent postoperative scar contracture. We found that the Z-plasty scar may be conspicuous when the patients open their mouths. Here we present a method of nearly straight line closure resulting in an inconspicuous scar even when the patients move their mouths.
