Patients needing surgical repair after nasal Mohs surgery require immediate prescreening by an anesthesiology provider to determine if the patient is a candidate for the appropriate anesthetic or is to be delayed for more medical evaluation. These patients may need anesthesia anywhere on the spectrum from local anesthesia only to general endotracheal anesthesia, and this may affect where and when the plastic surgeon can proceed.
