• The Limberg, Dufourmentel, and Webster 30° transposition flaps are reviewed. Twenty-two cases are reported. These cases show that preoperative design and attention to placement in relation to skin extensibility is important. However, these cases also demonstrate that placement of incision lines in proper anatomical locations for resulting camouflage and preservation of undue tension is critical to success.
