Abstract: The paramedian forehead flap is a good option for reconstruction of large and complex nasal defects. For full-thickness defects, it may be used alone or in combination with other methods. It can be easily performed under local or general anesthesia, providing a very good color and texture matching to the nasal skin. The only disadvantage is that it is a two-stage procedure that requires flap division and inset after 3 weeks. Here, we present a case of post-traumatic loss of the nasal tip reconstructed with a paramedian forehead flap.
