Skin Cancer Patient 31
This patient presented to Dr. Bhama with a chief complaint of a scaly lesion of the right brow. Dr. Bhama performed biopsy in clinic, which demonstrated basal call carcinoma (skin cancer). Dr. Bhama arranged for the patient to have Mohs surgery for removal of the cancer. The defect photos are shown here, demonstrating a defect of the right lateral forehead. Dr. Bhama performed transposition flap reconstruction. Very early post-operative photos are shown. Notice the preservation of the brow position and brow symmetry. The patient was very happy with results, and the scar will continue to improve with time. No revision surgery or dermabrasion were performed.
Skin Cancer Patient 32
This patient was referred to Dr. Bhama for reconstruction of a large nasal defect after Mohs surgery for basal cell carcinoma. She requested that her entire face not be included in the photos. Pre-op photos demonstrate a large defect of the nasal ala extending to the cheek. Options were discussed with the patient for reconstruction, and she elected for paramedian forehead flap. Dr. Bhama performed paramedian forehead flap reconstruction using auricular (ear) cartilage grafts to reconstruct the nasal valve. An advancement flap was used to reconstruct the cheek defect. Surgery went well, and early post-op pics are shown. Notice the excellent nasal contour. She was very happy with cosmetic and breathing results.
