Abstract

Various methods of nasal alar reconstruction has been described in the medical literature but very few for defects involving the alar rim. These are single- or multistage procedures and have their pros and cons. The authors have designed a novel technique for alar rim defects by advancing a flap alongside the alar crease. This flap is simple, easy to execute and provides desirable results for full-thickness defects in a single-stage procedure. Level of evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
