Mohs Reconstruction Before & After Photos

View before and after photos of surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeons Dr. Christopher Tolan, Dr. Garrett Griffin, Dr. Zachary Farhood and Dr. Anna Bakeman in Minneapolis, MN.

Patient #1318

This 56-year-old woman underwent Mohs excision of a skin cancer on her nasal tip. This left a 1.5-centimeter defect down to the underlying cartilage. Because she had thin skin on her nose, we were able to reconstruct the wound with a full-thickness skin graft. Skin grafts can sometimes look a little like a “patch”, so we used skin sanding (dermabrasion) to help blend the scar. The area is now almost invisible (as shown here with no makeup) and completely disappears under a light layer of makeup.
