I’m a 40-year-old woman and I had Mohs surgery on the tip of my nose

Question:

I’m a 40-year-old woman and I had Mohs surgery on the tip of my nose, leaving me with missing skin.  Will I ever look normal again?

Answer:

Nasal tip defects resulting from Mohs surgery can vary in size, shape, and depth. There are also a variety of ways to reconstruct these defects. This includes direct closure, transferring adjacent skin (flap closure), or a skin graft. While there will be a scar in the region of the reconstruction, in most cases, the end result is a normal appearing nose.
