I am 48 years old, male and I have had surgery on my face and nose for skin cancer. While I did not lose most of my nose, there is a substantial gouge out of it. Would a nose job be necessary to fill the gouge?
Skin cancer surgery can leave you with some fairly significant cosmetic issues on your face and especially on your nose. Those divots are actually quite difficult to fill and a formal nasal reconstruction will likely be necessary in order to hide some of the surgical scarring of your nose. I would definitely have to see the resultant surgical scar that you have in order to determine the best way to cosmetically reconstruct your nose.
