Our physicians frequently repair facial defects that result from 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.
Nasolabial Flaps are frequently used to repair defects of the nostril and nasal tip. In this procedure, skin is transplanted from the cheek to the nose in two outpatient procedures. Cheek skin has a similar color and texture to nasal skin, and the donor site scar can be hidden in a naturally occurring cheek fold.
