We present a method based on virtual planning and creation of rapid prototype models to accurately reestablish midfacial anatomy using vascularized bone flaps while saving time by streamlining the operative procedure, allowing prebending of titanium plates needed for fixation, and simplifying osteotomies. Accurate flap positioning through limited incisions is made possible using stereotactic navigation. Copyright © 2010 by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
