Abstract

Introduction: Reconstruction of the nasal tip defects is challenging because of variable contours of the region and the unique texture, thickness, color, and limited amount of available skin. There are several well-known local flaps for this purpose. Unfortunately, most of these flaps are suitable for small sized defects up to 2 cm in diameter. In this study, the authors are presenting a new flap for reconstruction of nasal tip and supratip defects larger than 2 cm in diameter.
