Reconstruction Photos

A brief overview.

Reconstructive surgery after skin cancer is a passion of Dr. Naficy's. He has performed thousands of nasal and facial reconstructive procedures and had authored a textbook and a number of articles on facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Naficy has presented his work at a number of national and international meetings and has been asked to teach a course in nasal reconstruction to other surgeons.

In the sections that follow you will have a chance to see some examples of Dr. Naficy's work in the form of before and after photographs. To facilitate the navigation process we have divided the photographs into different sections based on the anatomical location of the skin cancers. The before pictures represent the open wound on the face after the skin cancer has been removed.

Nose Reconstruction

Reconstruction of the nose is one of the most challenging aspects of plastic surgery. The nose is a three dimensional structure made up of not only skin, but also muscle, cartilage, and bone. Aside form its cosmetic importance; the nose serves a vital function in breathing, smell, and taste. Dr. Naficy has been performing complex nasal reconstruction procedures for nearly 15 years.

Lip Reconstruction

Lips are also common sites for occurrence of skin cancers. Basal cell cancers typically occur on the upper lip whereas squamous cell cancers occur on the lower lip. Lips serve a vital role in cosmetic beauty of the face and are an important functional structure for speech, chewing, and swallowing.

Cheek Reconstruction

Cheeks are also common sites for occurrence of skin cancers and in particular for certain types of melanomas such as lentigo maligna. Cheek defects often encroach on the skin of the lower eyelids and one of the biggest reconstructive challenges in cheek reconstruction is to avoid distorting the lower eyelid.

Forehead & Temple Reconstruction

Reconstruction of defects involving the forehead and temple area can be quite challenging since this region has fairly stiff skin with not a great deal of laxity. Also one needs to take measures to avoid distortion of the eyebrow, which can at times occur if the skin cancer defect is in proximity to the brow region.
