Anterior Nares

Fig. 3.6 Nasoalveolar cysts have a constant anatomical site and spot diagnosis is possible. Externally, there is flattening of the nasolabial fold and flaring of the alae nasi. In the anterior nares the cyst extends into the floor of the nose and displaces the inferior turbinate upwards. Excision via a sublabial incision and enucleation is the treatment. Surgical rupture of the cyst usually means incomplete removal, and predisposes to recurrence. The arrow indicates "flaring" of ala.

Dermoid Tumor Punctum

Fig. 3.8 Dermoid. A cystic swelling near the glabella is probably a dermoid; excision may not be straightforward. The differential diagnosis in childhood is the nasal glioma. There is commonly a sinus connecting the cyst to a punctum on the skin near the nasal tip, and there may be extension of the cyst deep to the nasal bones as far as the cribriform plate.

Alar Shaving Cyst
Fig. 3.10 Nasal papilloma excision. Excision is not straightforward. An elliptical excision with closure will produce an obvious nasal asymmetry, and more elaborate techniques are required to ensure a satisfactory result, e.g., an island sliding flap (a, b, c,).
Escision Simple Del Papiloma Nasal

Fig. 3.11a, b Rhinophyma, in which the skin becomes thickened and vascular, may produce gross nasal deformity in which the skin epithelium becomes thickened and vascular. "Shaving" of the excess skin (without skin grafting) is the surgical treatment. Irregular areas of epithelium (arrow) should be sent for histology since basal- or squamous cell carcinoma may occur within a rhinophyma.

Rodent Ulcer Face Basal Cell Carcinoma Nose Flaps

Fig. 3.12a, b Basal cell carcinoma (rodent cell carcinoma) are common on the nose, face, and ear. Any persistent ulcer, which may bleed, or area of induration should arouse suspicion.

Excision, radiotherapy, or laser treatment is curative for early lesions. More superficial lesions respond to fluorouracil cream. Deeply erosive basal cell carcinomas may be difficult to resect or cure. Many basal cell carcinomas require wide excision.

A simple elliptical excision leads to unnecessary scarring, which is to be avoided on the face. Incisions are made in the relaxed skin tension lines of the face and a number of flaps devised, e.g., the rhomboid as demonstrated here to minimize scarring.

Scar Excision Photos

Fig. 3.13 Scar revision. a When a scar on the face is prominent, simple excision and resuturing does not always give an improved result. b The "breaking-up" of the line when the scar is excised makes a scar considerably less evident. Facial scars may be improved markedly with techniques such as these but complete eradication is rarely possible. c One month after scar revision. d Nine months after scar revision.

How To Reduce Acne Scarring

Acne is a name that is famous in its own right, but for all of the wrong reasons. Most teenagers know, and dread, the very word, as it so prevalently wrecks havoc on their faces throughout their adolescent years.
