Abstract

To correct the nasal deformity in cleft lip patients, a new procedure of open rhinoplasty using a "flying-bird" incision in the nostril tip with a vestibule "tornado"-shaped incision in the cleft side is presented. The newly designed vestibular incision produces effective vestibular advancement with the freed lower lateral cartilage. The flying-bird incision makes it possible to produce a suitable nostril tip appearance with symmetrical external nostril vestibules. If the vestibular defect after flap advancement is wide, a full-thickness skin graft is used to give priority for making a good external nostril shape. This procedure is useful for most cleft lip noses, particularly in cases of moderate to severe deformity.
