Picture of modified Weber-Ferguson Incision
In this patient, the incision ended at the insertion of the ala nasi.  A classical Weber-Ferguson incision would continue toward the columella and then slit the lip in the midline.  The orbital limb of the incision could be placed below the eye, or both above and below the eye for orbital exenteration procedures.  The V-shaped flap above the medial canthus is intentionally created to prevent scar retraction.
