ANATOMICAL-SURGICAL ASPECTS IN GENIAN TUMOURS (Abstract): The facial skin offers rich resources to cover the loss of substance, having specific characteristics that differ from one region to another. The knowledge and understanding of the properties of the local flaps as well as of the appropriate technique for their realization will contribute to obtaining superior aesthetic results. The aim of this study is to identify the main morpho functional and aesthetics characteristic of local flaps used in jugal reconstruction after tumour excision. The retrospective study was conducted on 36 patients with facial skin carcinomas. A proper experience is required from the surgeon, because each aesthetic unit must be reconstructed only in a certain way, as far as possible separated from the other. Much imagination is needed, since there are frequently additional limitations, due to existing premalignant changes in the skin adjacent to the defect, but also due to pre-existing scars from previous surgery or from traumas suffered previously by the patient.
