Abstract

Conspicuous neck scars and soft tissue contour deformities are frequently the result of parotid gland surgery. Fortunately, various surgical techniques allow the elimination of these unwanted cosmetic defects, Through modifications in the traditional parotidectomy skin incision, coupled with primary soft tissue reconstruction, the stigmatic post-parotidectomy defect can be safely eliminated in the appropriately selected patient population. In addition, concomitant facelift surgery may also be performed safely in suitable patients seeking facial rejuvenation. Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1999, 7:90-98.
