Abstract

Aesthetic reconstruction of the nose or Perinasal cheek area after skin cancer excision is always challenging. The good skin color and texture match, invisible scars, avoiding or minimizing functional deficits, and preventing disfigurement in the surrounding tissue were needed. We elevated the reverse facial artery perforator flaps from the nasolabial area and reconstructed nose and cheek area aesthetically in patients with skin cancers. The reverse facial artery perforator flap has the advantages of reliable blood supply, minimal donor site morbidity and has a wide range of transfer. We believe that the reverse facial artery perforator flaps are reliable options of nose or perinasal cheek area in skin cancer reconstruction.
