Summary

Dog bite injuries are an important emergency. Facial dog bites can lead to disfigurement and stigmatization. Dog owners themselves are the usual victims of facial dog bites. Early surgery provides best results. A 28-year-old male patient presented 1 year after he had been bitten on his nose by his own dog. The pronounced nasal disfigurement with nostril stenosis was treated by reconstruction using a free composite graft from the crus of the ipsilateral ear with good results. Delayed reconstruction can provide satisfying results.
