I noticed a black mark on my nose that was not going away. After visiting a dermatologist, I had a mohs procedure performed by a surgical specialist that resulted in losing half my nose. Dr Surowitz performed a flap procedure from my forehead.
The first time I met Dr Surowitz I was totally unprepared for the depth of the reconstruction process. Dr. Surowitz assured me that even though the surgeries would be brutal there was a light at the end of the tunnel and he would be there with me every step of the way. Over these past months Dr. Surowitz has become more than my surgeon. I consider him a friend and confidant. He went so far as to put his personal cell phone number in my phone. He answered questions I had not thought to ask. When I met Dr Surowitz I can honestly say I considered myself deformed. Now if you met me you would not know I had facial reconstruction surgery. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had gone through this process with Dr. Surowitz.*
