ABSTRACT:Nasolabial Flaps are the most favoured and routinely used flap for reconstruction of the defect following fibrous band excision in developing countries like India, The use of the nasolabial flap in reconstruction of head and neck defects has manifested to be very efficacious and genuine, The versatility of the nasolabial flap has been imputed due to its vascularity derived from innumerable vessels in close vicinity. It is recommended because of effortless elevation, proximity to the defect, similar size for defect coverage, minimal difficulties in swallowing and speech and a relatively better cosmetic result as the scar is predominantly in natural crease, Major ancillary measures are habit abandonment, lifestyle changes, and excessive physiotherapy.
