Patient Info

Age:
Gender: Female
Procedures: Skin Cancer
Procedure Description:

This young woman had what appeared to be a rather small spot on the end of her nose which was biopsied and shown to be a skin cancer. She underwent Mohs excision by a dermatologist and which resulted in the rather large deep defect of her nasal tip shown. She underwent a two stage reconstruction with placement of a forehead flap and cartilage graft in the first stage followed by division of the flap 3 weeks later.
Her photos demonstrate the reconstructive result with a nearly imperceptible nasal scarring and excellent contour. Her forehead has a minimal vertical scar where the forehead flap was harvested to rebuild the nose.

Surgeon
