The authors describe the different reconstructive procedures to repair tissue losses of the nasal region, following ablative surgery or traumas. A distinction is made between simple skin losses and full thickness defects. In the first case the repair is simpler and it is accomplished with either full thickness skin grafts or rotation of local flaps. In the second case one should reconstruct the lining and immediately afterwards the coverage, which must be wide and viable. In this type of surgery use of distant flaps represents an old-fashioned technique, whereas the elective donor site still remains the frontal region, and particularly its frontotemporal aspect. The authors report their experience.
