Soft Tissue Defects of the Face and Mouth

Defects in the soft tissues of the face and mouth are repaired by the sliding, or transplanting, of flaps of mucous- or skin-covered tissue which are grafted into a new position. These flaps may be made from neighboring tissue, from tissue transplanted from some distant site, or tissue obtained from some other person. The latter procedure is almost entirely confined to the transplantation of skin or the superficial layers of skin
