CERCI, Felipe Bochnia  and  DELLATORRE, Gerson. Paramedian forehead flap combined with hinge flap for nasal tip reconstruction. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.140-143. ISSN 0365-0596.

The paramedian forehead flap is a great option for restoration of complex nasal defects. For full-thickness defects, it may be used alone or in combination with other methods. We present a patient with a basal cell carcinoma on the distal nose treated by Mohs micrographic surgery, and a resulting full-thickness defect repaired with paramedian forehead flap combined with a hinge flap. For optimal results with the paramedian forehead flap, adequate surgical planning, patient orientation and meticulous surgical technique are imperative.
