Abstract

The primary concerns of head and neck cancer surgeons are, and should remain, the complete extirpation of tumor and the prevention of tumor recurrence. In recent years, numerous advances have been made in the reconstruction of this patient population, significantly improving their functional and aesthetic outcomes. In this article, with an illustrative case example, we present our technique of unilateral deep plane neck lift that may be considered when one is attempting to achieve better symmetry in patients after radical neck dissection.
