A forehead flap was elevated and sewn into position.  It is left in place for 4 to 6 weeks.  Afterwards a planned second stage operation divides the pedicle  and reshapes the nose.  This patient had an increased amount of venous congestion of the flap.  He was placed on Trental and was told not to smoke.
