Abstract

The use of perforator flaps in face reconstruction is becoming increasingly common. They are particularly useful in nose reconstruction, where they can be tailored to match the complex three-dimensional structure of the nasal concave and convex subunits.In this paper, we present a review of the literature on the use of pedicled perforator flaps in nose reconstruction, discussing current indications and outcomes.Literature on this topic is still limited, with only 12 studies reporting data on 129 reconstructions. Reconstruction of nasal defects with pedicled perforator flaps is a novel and expanding field. It allows for the achievement of good aesthetic results, with a single operation and low donor site morbidity. Temporary venous congestion frequently occurs, but resolves spontaneously without leaving sequelae. Also, perforator flaps have precipitated a novel approach to nose reconstruction, allowing for the modification of both random and axial flaps according to a “perforator-like technique”.
