  • California Governor Jerry Brown recently had cancer cells removed from his nose, leading to a reconstructive nose job.

    73-year-old Democrat Jerry Brown had surgery to remove a cancerous growth from his nose. In a statement, Jerry’s office said, the growth was removed under local anesthetic on Friday, after tests revealed the presence of basal cell carcinoma. All the cancerous cells were removed, but some reconstructive surgery to Brown’s nose was required due to the procedure.

    Oftentimes removing cancer cells requires some sort of reconstructive surgery afterwards, which is different from a cosmetic nose job (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jerry Brown’s plastic surgery).

    On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia explains, “Basal cell cancers are very common. They number 4 of every 5 skin cancers we see. When such a cancer is on the nose, frequently a little reconstructive plastic surgery is helpful to minimize the deformity. The downtime is generally short unless the cancers are quite deforming due to size.”

    Makemeheal.com wishes Jerry a speedy recovery.
