Coronal approach

Coronal approach - incision

A preauricular extension of the incision can be made within a preauricular skin fold or over the tragus downwards to the level of the earlobe.

The skin is undermined at the depth of the temporalis fascia and the soft-tissue dissection proceeds under meticulous hemostasis with the use of bipolar cautery as required.
