The patient had an unidentified dermal filler placed outside of the United States over a decade ago. She developed a subsequent severe reaction which left her with extensive subdermal fibrosis and epidermal necrosis. Pathologic analysis revealed almost entire replacement of the dermal-epidermal layer with a foreign body and granulomatous reaction. The location at the cheek lower lid junction and the available lateral skin laxity deemed the rhomboid flap as the best option for reconstruction.
