Melanocytic nevi frequently involve the face. Congenital Melanocytic nevi are a known risk factor for melanoma. So there is a strong medical indication for excision of these lesions. But most of the patients request the excision for cosmetic reasons. We share our experience of excision and reconstruction in 33 such consecutive lesions. Selection of reconstructive procedure after excision was done depending over the size, site and orientation of lesion. Patient’s financial condition and his/her acceptance for staged procedure were also considered in choosing the procedure.
