Nose Reconstruction by Dr. Frederick J Menick enlarge

Secondary healing is indicated for small superficial defects located in the medial canthus or in the alar crease.

The wound is covered with a thin layer of petrolatum to avoid desiccation. It is washed daily with soap and water. It may or may not be covered.
