What is Mohs Reconstruction Surgery?
Mohs skin cancer reconstruction surgery restores both the look and function of your skin after Mohs surgery.
Mohs surgery for excision of a skin cancer inevitably results in an open wound. To close the wound or fill in the defect – special reconstructive procedures performed by plastic surgeons are often needed to optimize healing and to restore proper form and function to the area.
Our skilled plastic surgeons specialize in this form of reconstruction.
Many of our patients who have undergone facial reconstruction surgery feel as though they’re healed once their skin lesion is repaired.
What are the Benefits of Mohs Reconstructive Surgery?
The benefit of having post-Mohs reconstruction performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon is to maximize the potential to restore proper form and function to the wounded area following the necessary skin cancer removal process.
Many wounds that are left to heal on their own or if stitched closed with excessive tension can lead to poor healing and scarring, which over time can disfigure and affect function. The use of special plastic surgical techniques can facilitate optimal healing.
Without the daily reminder of their past cancer, patients can finally move on with their normal lives, making this procedure just as valuable as removing the cancer itself.
