Acquired defects involving exposed bone on the forehead is challenging to reconstruct. Skin expansion provides an ideal thin flap for forehead aesthetic unit, but it takes long time and high cost, and many patients are dissatisfied at their figures. Free flap can provide enough tissue immediately, but it takes long time and has the risk of mismatches of color and texture. This report details our experiences with two patients who had soft tissue defect on their forehead that was covered with remnant forehead flap unit. This method uses one-unit-forehead island flap based on supratrochlear and supraorbital vessel. We obtained satisfactory results in terms of aesthetic and functional consideration.
