Title

Enhancement of the Burned Nasal Tip with the Use of Upper Lip Scar Flaps.

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Maximal aesthetic improvement for the patient with burns deserves the same considerations as does functional restoration. The use of burn scars as vascularized flaps is a prime example in which these goals may be simultaneously achieved with an added bonus of salvaging tissues that would otherwise be discarded. Several cases involving revision of commonly encountered perioral scars demonstrate the effectiveness of burn scar flaps in the correction of concomitant nasal deformities, and thus reemphasize this useful principle.
