Nasal reconstruction information and locations in Mexico

Nasal reconstruction helps restore the function and appearance of the nose after cancer removal, trauma, or congenital defects. This surgery is different from a Septoplasty or nose job.
Before the procedure, your ENT surgeon will determine the damage, location, and structure of the area to be reconstructed. During a nasal reconstruction, one or more procedures can be involved to help restore the appearance and maintain the proper airflow.
Skin graft
This method is used to repair larger areas and the surrounded skin can’t be stretched to cover the issue. The graft is obtained from another part of the patient’s body usually from behind the ear, thigh, or groin.
Bone reconstruction
Bone reconstruction is considered when the nose presents structural deficiencies and the cartilage or bone may need to be replaced. The cartilage can be collected from the ears, nasal septum, or ribs, while the bone is obtained from the jaw, hips, ribs, or skull.
Nasal valve reconstruction
Nasal valve reconstruction is used to repair a collapsed cartilage in the nasal valve. During the procedure, the cartilage is reinforced and placed back in its place.

Surgical approach for nasal reconstruction
