This was done by cutting the flap with a larger surface internal than external, and in preparing for the reception of the flap, by dissecting and turning toward the median line some of the integument of the nose, and cutting under the integument outside of this incision, so that the edge of the flap might go in like a wedge between these raised sides, and present four surfaces instead of two, viz., two surfaces upon the flap, i.e., the two sides of the wedge, and the two surfaces made upon the stump of the nose in the groove for receiving the flap.
