(c) Following complete release of the contracture, the normal skin in the central cupola of the axilla is raised on a subcutaneous pedicle. (d) Central flap is rotated 90° in a “propeller” movement on its subcutaneous pedicle. (e) Showing excellent esthetic and functional result 2 years after the surgery. The raw areas adjacent to the central flap were split skin grafted
