Reconstructive Facial Plastic Surgery

Around the ear and the nose

I have always been fascinated by Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery around the ear and nose.

The last few years I have developed my skills:

  • Consulting and observing Moh’s micrographic skin cancer lesion excision by Dr Pieter du Plessis – Dermatologist / Moh’s Surgeon (Skin Matters Moh’s & Reconstruction Unit)
  • Consulting and assisting a Plastic Surgeon reconstructing post Moh’s excision facial lesions – Dr Japie de Wet (Skin Matters Moh’s & Reconstruction Unit)
  • I completed an online course in Facial Aesthetics (2021)

The main focus is complete small cancerous lesion excision, mainly in theatre with frozen sections and final histology done by a Histopathologist.

Local reconstruction will be done by primary suture, local skin flaps or skin grafts.

If the lesion is pre or intra operative too extensive, the patient will be referred to Skin Matters Moh’s & Reconstructive Unit in Pretoria (www.mohssurgery.co.za).

Basic post trauma reconstruction and minor congenital abnormalities around the ear and nose can also be managed.
