The Authors here report their 6 year experience gained in performing 10 temporo-parietal fascial flaps. The flap was used to reconstruct the genian region after practising a tumour resection. Such a technique guarantees an easy and quick solution in cheek reconstructions. It proves handy for poor medical condition patients and for minimizing the donor site morbidity. However, since the flap size is small, it cannot be used in more complex reconstructions after a major surgery.
