• A technique is described whereby limited soft tissue defects may be cosmetically improved using autogenous fascial strips. These strips of fascia lata are threaded onto a cadaveric needle that is tunneled subdermally, in a "basket weaving," criss-crossed fashion, augmenting the soft tissue defect and separating the scar from the underlying tissue. There are minimal incisions in the skin for this augmentation and there is very little local tissue reaction.
