The nose is one of the most important aesthetic units of the face. After a traumatic amputation, replantation is undoubtedly the procedure of choice, although, technically, very challenging. We report the 10-year follow-up of a partially digested nose replantation after a dog-bite in an 11-year-old boy using supermicrosurgery technique. Our report confirms that the microsurgical replantation of the nose can lead to an acceptable aesthetic result, with the sufficient growth of the replanted part in the following years. Besides the patient did not report sensibility disorders. The nose replantation in our opinion is the best reconstructive option to achieve an optimal aesthetic and functional outcome.
