Figure 15: (A–F) Square flap technique. (A) Oblique marking guidelines are made on both sides of the proximal nail fold. (B) Followed by incision along these markings. Next an incision is made parallel to the epidermis and beneath the fibrosis. (C) The square flap is lifted using a forceps. (D) The fibrotic tissue lying underneath is removed while saving the epidermis of the PNF. (E) A similar incision on the LNF can be used to remove latera fibrosis. (F) The square flap is kept in place and surgical closure is done using simple interrupted sutures
