CERCI, Felipe Bochnia. Versatility of advancement flaps for nasal reconstruction following Mohs` micrographic surgery. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2018, vol.93, n.5, pp.719-722. ISSN 0365-0596.

Advancement flaps are important reconstructive options after skin cancer removal on the nose. Donor areas vary according to defect location and size. The objective of this article is to illustrate the versatility of advancement flaps in nasal reconstruction. Five patients were selected. All cases were treated with Mohs' micrographic surgery prior to reconstruction to ensure that 100% of the surgical margins were free of cancer. Advancement flaps can be used to repair a wide variety of surgical defects on the nose with good matching of skin color, texture, and thickness. With careful planning, resulting scars can be camouflaged in natural boundary lines, leading to good functional and cosmetic outcomes.

Keywords : Mohs' surgery; Nose neoplasms; Surgical flaps.
