Abstract A 77-year-old man was referred for treatment of a biopsy-proven multi recurrence basal cell carcinoma (BCC) on the dorsum of the nose. The lesion was removed and the resulting surgical defect involved the full thickness of the nasal skin leaving intact the underlying perichondrium and cartilages of the whole nasal dorsum including both sidewalls. The authors performed a reconstruction of a surgical defect greater than 2/3 of the nose using a single-staged bilateral Burow's wedge flap and a full-thickness skin graft from the glabella. All scars were camouflaged in the natural facial boundaries and the surgical reconstruction was performed in a single staged. The final nasal contour, symmetry, and function were still good when the patient was seen 1 year after surgery.
