This article discusses methods of reconstruction, ranging from simple free-hand skin grafts to microvascular tissue transfer. The simplest reconstructive option must be chosen to suit the defect and to achieve the least possible donor morbidity. The most suitable reconstructive choices are discussed for each of the following situations: to provide a large surface area, to provide hair-bearing tissue, to fill "dead space," to restore motor function, or to provide composite bone and soft-tissue structures.
