What Happens During Nose Reconstruction?

Depending on the type of reconstruction your nose requires, the length of time for the surgery can vary. Most nasal reconstructions can be performed under local anesthesia.


Nasal reconstruction may require harvesting ear cartilage or septal cartilage in order to provide support to the nose. Furthermore, tissue from the nose may need to be rotated into different positions in order to correct a particular defect after skin cancer removal.

Sometimes tissue from the cheek or from the forehead will need to be used to reconstruct the nose. Dr. Lee will discuss all the options for reconstruction at your appointment, as well as give you a detailed surgical plan so you’ll know what to expect from your procedure.
