Adjacent Tissue Transfer (Rearrangement procedures) involve the transfer or transplantation of healthy, flat sections of skin or other tissue adjacent to a wound, scar or other lesion. The flaps of skin remain connected at one or more of their borders and are moved to an adjacent or nearby defect and attached in their entirety to their new location. These are commonly referred to as "local flaps" since tissue near or local to the defect is moved on to it.
