Hemifacial microsomia is the second most common facial clefting condition after cleft lip and palate. The deformity affects the skeleton and soft tissues in the temporal region of the affected side, although the degree of involvement is markedly variable. We describe a modification of surgical technique in a skeletally mature case who had previously undergone mandibular reconstruction with a costochondral graft.
