Adequate reconstruction of defects that are consequences of glossectomy is of primary importance for achieving satisfactory functional results and improving the quality of life.
The aim of this study was to report a case of free flap reconstruction of a subtotal glossectomy defect and discuss it in relation to other available methods.
A 48-year-old woman was operated on for a T4N0M0 squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue.

Bell's palsy causes lagophthalmos of the involved eyelids. Secondary to the atonicity of the eyelids, xerophthalmia, conjunctivitis and epiphora develops. There are dynamic (muscle transfers) and static (gold weights, tarsorrhaphy) approaches to alleviate these problems.

This clinical and experimental study compared adipose tissue transplant behavior after two different techniques of purifying: centrifugation at 3400 rpm for 3 min and serum lavage without centrifugation.
Clinical evaluation was performed under standardized conditions for lipofilling on a series of 51 female patients, intentionally selected to have similar characteristics and assigned to two groups based on the method of processing. Experimentally, a culture system in diffusion chambers with vitaline membranes was designed to mimic the behavior and to study the morphology of the adipose tissue used for autografting.

This study presents the results of a clinicomorphological study of autologous fat transplantation in the face region. The aim was to investigate and compare adipose tissue morphology after it was purified by two methods--centrifugation and serum lavage, and to find a correlation between the histological outcomes and the postoperative results.
The evaluation was performed on a series of 30 patients assigned into two groups of 15 patients.

Autologous fat grafting, referred to as lipofilling was described first by Neuber in 1893. It has been gaining great popularity recently due in particular to the intensive development of liposuction and the anatomical availability of various subcutaneous adipose tissue depots in the human body. In the present study we present our experience in autulogous fat grafting for the reconstruction of soft tissue defects as well as for face rejuvenation and body contouring.
