The use of the nasocheek sulcus flap with a cartilage strut provides an aesthetically pleasing result in total columella reconstruction. This provides thin hairless skin appropriate for the subunit.

The method of reconstruction described here is simple and easily reproducible, providing an optimal result with almost no donor site morbidity.
