• A new dermoplasty technique is described that allows both sides of the nasal septum to be covered with a single split-skin graft. This graft is designed with a narrow central dermal band that covers the septal dorsum and can be buried under the alar tissues. Exposure is obtained via a modified external rhinoplasty approach. The operation has been successfully performed on 11 patients, and in nine of them the graft take was complete.
