Skin cancer, by definition, can present anywhere on the body. When it is on the arm or shoulder or back, it is usually easily removed, and any resultant scar that might exist rarely presents a significant cosmetic or functional problem for the patient. When skin cancer presents on the nose or face, the proper removal of that skin cancer can result in a significant deformity or distortion wherein the skills of an experienced plastic surgeon are required to properly reconstruct that missing part to leave the patient with as little disfigurement as possible. Sometimes the reconstructive surgery required is fairly straightforward, and other times more complex. This may involve a skin flap or skin graft, and it may occasionally require more than one stage of surgery to complete the reconstruction properly and optimally. Dr. Ram Kalus and Dr. Craig Rowin have extensive experience in aesthetic facial reconstruction in general, and nasal reconstruction specifically.
