Currently, forehead flap is still a gold standard in nasal amputation and it remains a good choice in facial reconstruction. Paramedian forehead rotation flap is characterized by a tight pedicle based on the epitrochlear vessels flowing between the nasal root and the median section of the eyebrow arch. Using a forehead flap in nasal defects offers clear advantages: skin color affinity, low morbidity of the donor site, and good aesthetic results. Many surgical techniques are described for this kind of aesthetic restoration. The front flap, a cartilaginous graft taken from the nasal septum, is one of the most common options indicated in the functional and aesthetic restoration of columella region and the nasal tip.
