Most nasal cutaneous malignancies occur on the caudal third of the nose. Commonly, following resective surgery, the surgeon is requested to reconstruct the ala. Small skin defects of the nose may be left healing by secondary intention, although this may sometimes create an unpleasant scar. In the present paper we describe a 1-step reconstruction of the distal area of nasal ala, alar facial sulcus and cheek, with a segmented melolabial interpolated flap.

Abstract

Most nasal cutaneous malignancies occur on the caudal third of the nose. Commonly, following resective surgery, the surgeon is requested to reconstruct the ala. Small skin defects of the nose may be left healing by secondary intention, although this may sometimes create an unpleasant scar. In the present paper we describe a 1-step reconstruction of the distal area of nasal ala, alar facial sulcus and cheek, with a segmented melolabial interpolated flap.
