Good surgeon for basal cell morphiaform carcinoma

I have basal cell morphiaform carcinoma on my nose. I'm a fairly young woman and feel horrified thinking about what I'll look like after a mms procedure which my dr. has recommended. There's a big chance that a large section of my nose will be gone. Where do I go with this? Is there reconstructive plastic surgery to create a normal looking nose? I'm not sure yet how much bone may be affected but a lot of cartilage will be removed. I know I'm more that my physical appearance but I've been told my whole life what a really pretty girl I am and I'm about to look like a monster and don't know if there's any hope for normalcy again and what I should be doing know and where to find the best reconstructive surgeon. I really need help. Thanks!

after most surgeries for cancer there are reconstructive surgeries that can be done once the wound from the primary surgery heals well and all the tumor tissue is removed.
medicine is very advanced now.
consult your treating doctor with your query. tell him or her your doubts and the options you have in mind.
