  • 1Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, College of Medicine, Inje University, Seoul, Korea.


Various methods of nasal reconstruction were performed over time. The physiology and anatomy of nose were clarified and its aesthetic subunits were employed, more improvement and modification were performed. The bilobed flap is particularly suitable for reconstruction of small or medium sized nasal defect up to 1.5 cm in diameter. Authors performed 6 cases of the bilobed flap for the defect of nasal dorsum (4 cases: basal cell carcinoma, 2 cases: compound nevus) from March 2000 to February 2001. The bilobed flap was medially based and second lobe was positioned on the nasal alar groove. This flap results in little or no distortion around tissue, by which scars of nasal dorsum and dog-ear deformity are reduced. Moreover we could achieve better cosmetic results for the scar, primary repair site of the second lobe, which is concealed by nasal alar groove.
