Nose Reconstruction by Dr. Frederick J Menick

Flap inset

Medial cheek skin is elevated with a few mm of subcutaneous fat and advanced onto the nose, carrying the distal extension to cover the defect

The superior extent of the nasolabial skin extension is incised laterally only enough to permit its rotation and advancement to the recipient site.
