MOHs Reconstruction of Nasal Defect Following Removal of Basal Cell Carcinoma

This client sought out Dr. LeBeau’s expertise for reconstruction of his nasal defect following removal of a Basal Cell Carcinoma by a local MOHS dermatologist who then referred him to our office. 

A bilobed flap reconstruction was chosen as the optimal technique for reconstruction of the nasal defect with minimal noticeable scarring and no deformity of the nostril opening.

These photographs show the defect with the marked out incision for the wound closure on the nose.  This specialized reconstruction requires making two additional flaps of skin which are then raised and rotated into the defect and sutured in place.

The follow up photographs show the repaired nose at one month and 6 months following his procedure.  He will continue to see improvement in the appearance of the his repair for up to 12 months as the area matures.
