Cancerous or precancerous skin lesions need to be dealt with sooner rather than later. After Mohs skin cancer removal surgery, a gap in the tissues is created, and the patient is in need of skin cancer reconstruction.

If you have a nasal skin lesion that is cancerous, it can be removed with the aid of Mohs surgery. Mohs surgery is often used to treat lesions that appear in high risk areas. After this procedure, we will be able to provide expert nasal skin reconstruction.
High risk skin lesions may appear near nerve branches, creating the potential for nerve damage during treatment. High risk lesions may be located near the nostrils or other facial features. Improper Mohs surgery on these lesions can result in complications such as nostril airflow issues.
