This patient had nose reconstruction to repair a nasal defect involving the nostril margin and the cheek. The nostril (nasal ala) was repaired with a 2 staged interpolated cheek flap (nasolabial flap) procedure. In the first stage of this facial reconstruction, skin and soft tissue from the cheek was trasferred to the nose in order to replace the missing tissue.

The second stage was performed 3 weeks later in order to detach the flap and to recreate the transition between the cheek and the nose.
