A Delicate Procedure That Calls For A Specialist

Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer in the world, with millions of cases diagnosed each year. The nose is notoriously difficult to reconstruct after skin cancer. When cancerous or damaged skin is removed, it is a challenge to complete a restoration with skin that looks identical to the surrounding area without distorting any facial features.

Is A Nose Reconstruction Right For Me?

Defects or scarring on the nose caused by skin cancer removal can range in size and shape. As the focal point of the face, many patients can feel embarrassed by how their nose looks after cancer treatment. If you identify with this, Dr. Robb is here for you. Double board-certified in facial reconstruction and head and neck surgery, Dr. Robb is a facial specialist who understands the specific approaches and techniques required to help you obtain the best outcome.

Patients who have had or will have Mohs (micrographically oriented histographic surgery) planned for a nasal lesion should trust reconstruction to an expert to ensure great results. Dr. Robb Jr. has extensive experience in facial reconstruction and will spend time with you discussing your needs and concerns. After this discussion, Dr. Robb will formulate the best method of reconstruction based on your specific circumstances.

What Happens During The Procedure?

The details of each nose reconstruction differ because the surgery is tailored to each individual patient’s needs. Dr. Robb often performs nose reconstruction in the office while the patient is awake. Numbing agents and oral sedation are used to make the process comfortable. Dr. Robb prefers this approach to nose reconstruction in Atlanta because it eliminates the effects of anesthesia-related complications. Most procedures take between 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

How Does Nose Reconstruction with Dr. Robb Differ From The Rest?

​A thorough understanding of nasal and facial anatomy is crucial when discussing nasal reconstruction. While it’s impossible to perform facial reconstruction surgery without incisions and scars, Dr. Robb often places incisions in “facial subunit borders”, often making scars undetectable to others after they heal.

Techniques such as this are the result of years of advanced, specific training; Philip Robb, Jr., MD, FACS is double board-certified in facial plastic surgery and head and neck surgery, and has dedicated his entire practice to specializing in this area.

What Kind Of Recovery Can I Expect?

Due to the singular nature of this surgery, ​recovery looks different for different patients. For most, light activity can be resumed a day or two after the surgery. Detailed post-operative instructions are given to each patient that outlines healing timelines and appropriate care.
Dr. Robb also makes himself available to every patient after surgery, as he believes the recovery period is better without the anxiety and concern of the unknown.
