Abstract

We have shown that the buccal fat pad is a robust and reliable flap that may improve the success rate of orbital reconstruction by providing well-vascularized tissue of suitable volume. The buccal fat pad has been utilized for numerous aesthetic and reconstructive facial applications and provides excellent vascularized tissue support when alloplastic or allograft materials are being used. We propose that using the pedicled buccal fat pad in conjunction with titanium, porous polyethylene mesh, polyamide sheets, or various other allograft materials can improve the success rates of reconstruction. This approach has not previously been described in the literature. This technique is an excellent compliment to periorbital reconstruction given the ease of dissection, quality of vascularized tissue, and consistent volume between patients.
