I have a non aggressive tumour on my nose.

Question

I have a non aggressive tumour on my nose. Rather than just have surgery to remove it, I would like my whole nose looked at and reconstruction done at the same time. Is this possible, please?

Answer

Reconstruction of the nose sometimes follows aesthetic boundaries, in order to achieve a more pleasing and controlled result, as opposed to being confined to tumour resection margins.

There are indeed instances where a segment of the nose and occasionally the whole of those is treated although the tumour itself does not affect the whole area. The purpose of it is to generate a result that is aesthetically superior.

This is is something that you should discuss with your surgeon, and established together a plan of treatment that you are both comfortable with.
