The nose is the most common location for skin cancer and one of the most challenging areas for reconstruction. As a result, 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 results 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.
