Mohs surgery is considered the most effective technique for treating the most common types of skin cancer. Sometimes called Mohs micrographic surgery, the procedure is done in stages. This allows the removal of all cancerous cells for the highest cure rate while sparing healthy tissue and leaving the smallest possible scar. You will have a reconstructive team which often includes a dermatologist and our plastic surgeons to help guide you through the process.
Facial reconstruction following a cancer diagnosis requires a great deal of surgical planning and personalization. Our surgeons will put together a plan to select the best reconstructive technique to repair your skin cancer defect. The method chosen to repair the defect will depend on several factors, including the amount of tissue that needs to be removed and the condition of the skin and its underlying tissues.
The removal of a skin cancer is a traumatic experience and it normal to be worried about how your face will appear after the healing process is over. Our surgeons will use their experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery to help give you the best outcome and most natural looking result possible.
This majority of these procedures are performed at our Wellspring Plastic Surgery practice under local anesthesia.
