The forehead is a common site for nonmelanoma skin cancer. For medium to large sized defects, the primary reconstructive challenge is the paucity of loose adjacent donor skin. The authors describe frontalis muscle plication, imbrication, and related surgical techniques utilized in reconstructing forehead defects. With these techniques, one can significantly reduce wound tension and increase the volume of tissue recruited to the defect site as necessary.
