Abstract

The technique of resecting the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi muscle can help improve nasal symmetry and is a useful ancillary procedure in reconstruction of the paralyzed face. In 3 patients with facial paralysis, this technique markedly changed the nasal deviation seen at rest and also affected the nasolabial angle and medial nasolabial fold. A patient report is presented.
