The nose plays a significant role in the determination of one's physical appearance as well as various other important functions such as respiration, olfaction, and resonance. It also occupies the most prominent position on the face, a position that makes it vulnerable to distortion by trauma, and incidentally, it is a feature that is most frequently predisposed to skin tumors. The surgical reconstruction for nasal defects caused by the resection of these neoplasms should be considered from two viewpoints:the aesthetic and the functional aspect of the nose. For aesthetic reconstruction of the nose, the tissues for reconstruction should match the surrounding tissue in terms of color and texture. For functional reconstruction, the mucosal layer and the cartilage framework should be reconstructed. We have reconstructed nasal defects in five cases of nasal neoplasms using the forehead flap, full-thickness skin graft, nasolabial flap, buccal mucosal flap, and local flap. We are reporting these cases along with reviews of the relevant references.

KEY WORDS:Nasal defect·Neoplasm·Reconstruction.
