The forerunners of the midline forehead flap date back to ancient India. The flap, as modified in this presentation, is often the treatment of choice for reconstructing significant full-thickness defects of the nose. The flap described is designed as a musculocutaneous flap incorporating skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, and aponeurosis. The enhanced vascularity of this flap allows precise thinning and tailoring at the distal end. A stepwise description of flap design is outlined.
