Craniofacial surgery has evolved through an era of refinement and finesse, both in techniques and in results. Tissue expansion offers an opportunity to improve the quantity and quality of tissue available for these procedures. It may also be of benefit in long-term molding of the craniofacial skeleton during growth of the child, obviating the need for multiple revisions. This adjunct to craniofacial surgery is being performed with minimal complications and results in improved appearance for the patient.
