Abstract

To achieve an equilateral and stable nasal base, many technical resources have been traditionally used that transform this vital pyramidal nasal structure into a beautiful, equilateral and stable triangle that resists pressure on the nasal tip. Here we stress less usual resources, one of which has not yet been published: Z-plasty in naso-labial sulcus. We stress: Columella Trunk, Soft Triangles, filling the Nasolabial Angle, en-bloc excision of Alar and Vestibular Wedges, excision of longitudinal Alar Bands, in the Total Resection of Alar Cartilages and Temporal Fascia, and in Z-plasty of naso-labial sulcus. All this is done to achieve a Beautiful, Equilateral and Stable Nasal Base.
