Abstract

The authors' flap can be used for reconstructing large defects of the lower half of the nose, and reconstruction with a single stage yields a fast and satisfactory result. The authors advocate that the lateral nasal artery pedicle nasolabial island flap is an excellent choice for reconstruction of large defects in the lower half of the nose.
