V-Y Bipedicle Flap for Resurfacing The Nasal Supratip Region


B. STRAUCH

M. FOX



For resurfacing the nasal supratip region, use of the V-Y bipedicle flap allows the concealment of the lower incisions in the normal alar creases and of the upper incisions in the glabellar folds (1).




FLAP DESIGN AND OPERATIVE TECHNIQUE

The lesion in the supratip area is marked for appropriate excision. Two lateral triangular areas are then drawn to the nasolabial folds, defining an elliptical defect, the lower borders of which conform to the upper borders of the alar crease. A V is then planned, starting high in the glabellar area, coming down the side of the nose, and extending out on the cheek in the border between the cheek and the eyelid skin (Fig. 38.1A).
