Bifid nose, an indicator of Tessier No.0, is a rare congenital malformation. Because of its rarity, few cases were reported and the optimal surgical procedure and the best time for surgery have not been widely acknowledged. In this brief report, a 9-year-old girl with mild bifid nose and unilateral mini-microform cleft lip, and its surgical management, is presented. We focused our attention on modifying the shape of the nose through open rhinoplasty without excising the surplus skin on the nasal dorsum and achieved good results.
