Large and deep defects in foreheads are best repaired with flaps. In these types of cases, reconstructions are made through the transfer of distant flaps, due to the small amount of available local tissue. The supraclavicular island flap (SCIF) has been extensive used for head and neck reconstructions during the last two decades. However, the flap extension is limited to the reconstruction of the superior third of the face, which may increase the risk of distal flap necrosis. The authors describe two cases of forehead reconstruction with the SCIF using a microsurgical technique.
