Cases 2 to 4: Bilobed Flaps

Fasciocutaneous bilobed flaps were created using adjacent tissue in each of the 3 cases. Highlighted later is case 3. The flap was raised at the level of fascia, elevated, and inset into the wound over a size 19Fr Blake drain. Figure 3 demonstrates the design of the flap and defect, and Figure 4 demonstrates post–flap inset.
