Our physicians frequently repair facial defects that result after removing skin cancer. Many of these patients have undergone Mohs surgery, a specialized technique for removal of facial/skin malignancies. Common procedures include flaps and grafts.
A Bi-Lobe Flap is often used to repair defects of the nose, especially when the defect is less than 1.5 cm (3/4") in diameter. Nasal skin is rearranged in a geometrical pattern to fill in the hole left after cancer removal. The skin texture and color match is excellent, because the skin used for the repair is native nasal skin.
