    Hello, I received a full thickness skin graft to my nose 11/10/17 (donor site my neck). The graft has adhered well but I am self-conscious about the aesthetic results. My nose is still very red and the alar (nostril) area has a deformed shape. Has anyone had experiences with grafts on the nose or face? I see my surgeon for a f/u in 3 wks. Last December, he had said he might recommend dermabrasion at a future time.

    Did you have a general surgeon perform this? I would highly recommend you see a plastic surgeon for something this cosmetically sensitive. And I might travel to someone expert at a teaching university. I know how this must be a struggle for you and we certainly pay the price for our melanomas or skin cancer. I would get another opinion.
