Can Rhinoplasty Correct Asymmetry As a Result of Mohs Surgery? My Left Nostril is Dented In.

My left nostril has a dented appearance and has none of the natural curve of the right.
Consult with a Board Cerified Plastic Surgeon to discuss scar revision / reconstruction for your nasal deformity. There are surgical procedures to correct your problem.
I would suggest you discuss scar revision options with a board certified plastic surgeon. There should be surgical alternatives to correct your problem.
Fixing nostril after Mohs surgery
Remember the best thing here is that the cancer is gone! I don't know how long it's been since your Mohs and I usually suggest people wait about 6 months for any kind of reconstructive procedures, but you could see a plastic surgeon for a consultation and try reshaping the nostril, or if it's just a dent, you could also have a very small amount of filler (probably Restylane) put in there. The Restylane could be done by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, but just make sure you pick a doctor who is board-certified.
