In the face, the nose plays an important role in both function and appearance. Among the subunits on the nose, the alar is a critical nasal structure of high aesthetic value. Previously, many surgeons have insisted that structural support should be added to the reconstruction of alar and particularly so in the case of a full-thickness defect. In a 58-year-old male patient who had a third-degree burn injury and full-thickness defect in most of the left nasal alar, forehead flap surgery alone was successfully performed without structural support.
