Notched Nose

This 55 year-old woman had micrographic surgery for a basal cell of the left ala three years ago. The graft did not take and she has been left with a notched ala. The defect, in the center of her face, is more disfiguring than it appears in this photo.

Question: What kind of repair could be done at this time to give her a better functional and cosmetic repair.
