When a skin lesion forms on a person’s nose, there is always the chance that it may be cancerous or precancerous. To remove certain lesions, Mohs surgery will be employed. If Mohs surgery has been recommended for your nasal skin lesion, Mohs reconstruction may been needed afterwards.
After Mohs surgery for nasal skin cancer, Mohs reconstruction will be required to correct the skin defect. This typically requires regional or local flap surgery to transfer skin to the area. Afterwards, the skin of your nose will appear as smooth and natural as possible. The functionality of your nose should not be impaired.
