The midline forehead flap has been a preferred choice for nasal repair in our practice for over 20 years, with no significant complication ever having developed (Figs. 9 to 11). The abundance and length of tissue it provides is remarkable, given the inconspicuous defect remaining in the forehead area. Its use is economical of tissue, time, and expense to the patient. Most importantly, the midline flap provides superior aesthetic and reconstructive repair in a relatively short period of time without resorting to more complicated, and therefore more risky, flap designs.
