The nose is the most common location for skin cancer and one of the most challenging areas for reconstruction.* Therefore, it is also the most common area treated with Mohs Micrographic Surgery for the highest cure rate, minimal sacrifice of normal tissue, and preservation of function.* The Mohs surgeons at the California Skin Institute are fellowship-trained with thousands of nasal reconstructions completed over the past decade.* We are uniquely qualified to repair even the most complicated nasal defect – all with the safety of local anesthesia.*
About the Nose Reconstructive Surgery Examples
The following photos of surgical defects following Mohs Micrographic surgery are real and unaltered.* Do not view them unless you are prepared to see graphic images including skin wounds and surgical procedures.*
The objectives of these slide shows are to introduce you to Dr. Morganroth’s unique facial reconstruction procedures and provide you with a greater understanding of the final outcome that he can achieve despite significant tissue loss.*
These cases do not represent the typical, small, and simple reconstructions representative of the majority of Mohs surgery patients.* Instead, they illustrate some of the larger defects and more advanced and proprietary reconstruction techniques.* They do not necessarily represent your skin cancer, defect diameter or depth, or the reconstruction choice and outcome.*
