Abstract:   (690 Views)
Complete or total arhinia, in which nasal soft tissue is absent, is an extremely rare disease. The embryological origin of the defect is thought to be the maldevelopment of paired nasal placodes. In this article, we introduce nasal reconstruction with two forehead flaps. The reconstruction was done with two forehead flaps in a 20-year-old male patient with arhinia. Using one frontal flap of the forehead as the inner layer and the other one as the outer layer. The postoperative care was uneventful. He was able to breathe through the nose. No chest pain or any difficulty was mentioned in daily activities. The principal advantage of this technique over previous techniques is that the operation is performed in two stages and at the end of the procedure the patient has the final shape of the nose and is able to breathe normally. Furthermore, this technique could be performed for all age groups.
