Abstract

Nasal reconstruction has been refined to the point that its goals should include full restoration of form and function in addition to providing an aesthetically-pleasing result. Contemporary facial plastic surgeons have all the tools available in their armamentarium to repair the complex composite structure of nasal lining, structure, and skin cover. Nasal defects most often result from oncologic surgery or, less commonly, nasal trauma. While defects of nasal cover are more prominent, the impact of unrepaired nasal lining defects should not be underestimated. Meticulous repair of lining, structure and cover are all required for functional, stable and aesthetic nasal reconstruction.
