Facial Reconstruction

Conveniently located to serve Reno, Carson City & Gardnerville

Skin cancer is, unfortunately, very common in Northern Nevada. Removal of skin cancers are very common on the face and can result in defects that require careful reconstruction. Dr. Yamamoto often reconstructs sensitive locations like the eyelid, nose, ear, and lip to create the best possible appearance and minimize visible scarring. Understanding the intricate anatomy and contours of the face are essential in excellent reconstruction outcomes.

Scar Revision

Some scars on the face can be very noticeable and bothersome to your appearance. The good news is that many scars can be revised to be less visible and better blend into the contours of your face. Depending on the size, shape, and location of your scar, different options are available to give you the best possible result.

Options for scar revision include laser remodeling, surgical remodeling, and injection of anti-scar medications. A consultation with Dr. Yamamoto will help you determine which options are best for you.
