Facial wound reconstruction following dermatologic surgery for cancer excision, or other cause of disfigurement, is one of the more tricky procedures a dermatologist can carry out. Not only does the wound need to be clinically sound, the aesthetic requirements from patients are high, and the nose and surrounding areas are especially challenging.
This book, based on step-by-step case studies published in Dermatologic Surgery (the journal of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery), will introduce the principles of reconstruction and a range of ‘how to’ approaches for nasal reconstructive surgery covering the choice of graft for the situation and then the surgical approach necessary to achieve optimal success.
Each case will provide a discussion of the particular reconstruction needed, the possible challenges, the solution chosen and an illustrated ‘how to’ description of the procedure.
