They retain their own blood supply during transfer to the new site. They are used in plastic surgery for filling a defect in a neighboring region.

A portion of the soft parts of the body separated from those beneath, but still attached by the base. Hence there may be' flap wounds,' (F.) Plaies a lamleaux, and 'flap operations,' (F.) Operations a lambeaux. When the flap is taken from one part, and applied to another, in plastic operations, the operation is said to be by migration of the flap, (F.) Migration du Lambeau. At times, the flap is made to slide over the part to which it has to adhere: - the operation is then said to be by the sliding of the flap, (F.) Glissement du Lambeau. The flap is also, at times, rolled, inverted, &c, (F.) Roulement ou Inversion du Lambeau.
