Neurofibromatosis type 1 is a rare disease which can manifest itself by the development of plexiform neurofibromatosis, with craniofacial deformities. In this paper, we propose special consideration in excision nasolabial fold mass to help lifting procedures in neurofibromatosis patients. We are reporting two case, both presented with von Recklinghausen’s disease, a 21 years old male patient with neurofibromatosis in his right hemifacial for which he had been operated on five times
previously at other center, and a 24 years old male with neurofibromatosis in his left hemifacial. After several stages of reconstruction which started with nasolabial fold mass excision, the result was satisfactory, by using the multiple stage repair, it was done until the end result is similar to anatomical form. The mass debulking procedures for these patients, which started with Nasolabial Fold mass excisison are continued with durable lifting procedures. This method gives results a satisfactory lifting procedure.
