The rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap is frequently used in the field of plastic and

reconstructive surgery such as breast reconstruction and as a donor of free tissue

transfer. Major problems with this flap is bulkiness, the possibility of postoperative

abdominal herniation and muscle weakness following the removal of the rectus

abdominis muscle. We used paraumbilical perforator based skin flap fed by a muscle

perforator from the deep inferior epigastric artery, with no or little muscle and fatty

tissue, in three patients for the resurfacing of relatively wide and thin defects. This technique has all of the advantages of the conventional rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap with decreased possibility of postoperative abdominal herniation or muscle weakness.

Another challenging merit is possibility of skin flap thinning.
