Abstract: Flat chest is a special thoracic deformity, which is mainly characterized by flat anterior chest wall. Because the deformity may be combined with mild depression, Nuss procedure was used in the past. However, due to the lack of appropriate fulcrum, this kind of surgery often ends in failure. We designed a special method to treat this deformity. First, we use Wung procedure to change the figure of anterior chest wall into the shape of middle protrusion and bilateral depression, and then we use Wenlin procedure to perform micro-plastic surgery for the chest wall. In this process, we made full use of the advantages of template plastic surgery, so that the advantages of the two procedures were fully reflected, and finally achieved satisfactory results. In this paper, we report the use of this method in a young male patient with flat chest.
