An adipofascial turnover flap is described. This vascularized flap is technically simple to perform and provides excellent cosmetic results for patients with a very large tumor undergoing superficial parotidectomy. The flap also acts as a barrier for regenerating nerves, preventing the development of gustatory sweating.
