Cheeks are also common sites for occurrence of skin cancers and in particular for certain types of melanomas such as lentigo maligna. Cheek defects often encroach on the skin of the lower eyelids and one of the biggest reconstructive challenges in cheek reconstruction is to avoid distorting the lower eyelid.
