Basal cell/nose flap

Just curious if anyone has had a nose flap and what is recovery like.  I'm 44, this is my third bcc, had one removed in 2010 from forehead with clear margins and shoulder in 2013 with c mAr

Nose is 0.60 cm, had general surgeon remove it with 3 stiches, margins were not clear and was referred to plastic surgeon who wants to do nose flap. Just trying to find those who have insight.  Blessings!

    Hopefully you are looking at having Moh's surgery done.  They shave and biopsy layer by layer until clean margins.  My husband just had this done in December, he has healed well, can't even notice where the surgery was.
