ABSTRACT: Patients with craniofacial microsomia often require multiple surgical interventions to address both hard and soft tissue defects. For improvement of soft tissue defects, microvascular free tissue transfers have been widely performed after puberty. To camouflage facial asymmetry, early fat grafting was performed on five six-month-old patients, and acceptable outcomes were obtained without overcorrection. This result suggests that early fat grafting in craniofacial microsomia is useful to camouflage asymmetrical facial contours.
