Abstract

The general increase in the incidence of malignant melanoma has caused a more massive presence at the level of special sites such as the face, posing problems of the reconstruction from a cosmetic point of view. The widespread move away from large margins of exercise (3-5 cm) towards margins of approximately 1 cm surrounding the lesion, together with the improved prognosis for this pathology on the face compared to other sites, calls for greater attention to be paid to the reconstructive techniques used. Since surgery is the only solution 'quoad vitam' for the patient, it is now preferable to attempt to offer the patient both a complete exeresis of the neoplasia and a satisfactory cosmetic result. In this study the authors report four cases involving the excision of malignant melanoma in the cervico-cephalic district and their consequent reconstruction using special surgical techniques.
