Mohs Reconstruction

Mohs micrographic surgery is a procedure used to remove skin cancer with precision, thoroughness and success. This procedure removes not only the tumor on the surface of the skin, but any roots below the skin as well. This ensures a complete removal of the tumor and helps prevent cancer from recurring.

Despite its high level of efficiency, Mohs surgery often leaves behind large wounds or scars in prominent areas such as the face or hand. These deformities can be emotionally upsetting and a constant reminder of the skin cancer that once existed there. Fortunately, plastic surgery can be performed to repair the wound and restore your skin to a more healthy and natural appearance.

Reconstruction after Mohs surgery can often be performed the same day or the day after the removal procedure. Reconstructive procedures are performed on an individualized basis, depending on each patient’s wound, and can involve a skin graft, flap of skin, stitching or surgical closure. While complete tumor resection is the main goal, your doctor also takes your appearance into consideration by leaving much healthy tissue as possible. Reconstruction uses this remaining healthy tissue to carefully restore the area for both effective and aesthetic results.
