Full thickness defects of the nose represent a difficult reconstructive challenge, especially when the defects are large. Vascularised chondrocutaneous free flaps from the root of the auricular helix can adequately serve to reconstruct the nose including the alar. We present a case of full thickness reconstruction of a near heminasal defect measuring over 12 cm2 involving the nasal sidewall, alar and vestibular lining using a large free auricular flap.
