Abstract

Reconstructive nasal surgery aims not just to rebuild a nose or part of a nose, but to blend and tailor the new and old tissues in such a way as to create a nearly ideal shape that is likely to be an improvement on the original. The challenge of the reconstruction is enhanced by the complexity of the defect. Differences in colore, texture, and thickness between the nasal remnants and the sources of skin available for the reconstruction impose aesthetic limits that are often difficult to overcome.
