We describe a surgical reconstruction after micrographic surgery of a recurrent basal cell carcinoma of the middle third of the left eyebrow. After micrographic surgery there was a 46- × 26-mm defect in the middle part of the eyebrow. To perform a cosmetically satisfactory repair a combined nude and hair-bearing full-thickness skin graft was harvested from the contralateral postauricular temporoparietal region and placed in the defect with hair growth direction of the graft and the recipient bed in the same direction. By using a combined nude and hair-bearing full-thickness skin graft, larger eyebrow defects can be repaired with an optimal functional and aesthetic result.
