We report our experience using the vessels at the nasolabial fold as receptor site in free tissue transfer in head and neck reconstructions; a site that proved more convenient than the submandibulary site in selected cases. Six cases as well as the dissection technique of the nasolabial fold are reported. No complications occurred during or post surgery and in all cases the vessels were of adequate diameter for an end to end anastomosis. The advantages this site offers are discussed.
