  With advances in techniques and instrumentation, the primary concern of microsurgeons has shifted from flap anatomy and survival toward flap refinement and donor-site function and aesthetics because flap survival rates have risen 96 percent. However, the problem still remains on regard that most flap has disadvantages that flap itself is too bulky or leaves unaesthetic scar to the donor site. These problems can be solved by using adipofascial flap instead of fasciocutaneous flap. The adipofascial flap not only has minimal donor site morbidity, but also can be retained thin. It seems that its advantages can be applied on soft tissue defect of exposed body part.
Key Words: Fasciocutaneous flap, Adipofascial flap
