Mohs surgery, or “micrographic surgery” is performed to remove cancerous skin cells thoroughly. This advanced surgical technique makes it possible to remove cancerous skin cells, with minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. Following the removal of cancer, the treated area can be restored with advanced facial reconstruction surgery.
Can I achieve a natural look after skin cancer treatment with Mohs surgery that led to extensive skin and tissue removal?
The skills of your facial plastic surgeon are critical. Our facial plastic surgeons understand your wish to achieve an appearance that is not distracting, unusual, or odd in appearance, and will use the most advanced techniques to help you look and feel your best after treatment.
How long will it take to recover from Mohs surgery and facial reconstruction?
You may need between six and eight weeks to recover, with added scar treatments once the area is healed.
Can the nose, lips, or eyes be restored to appear natural after Mohs surgery?
Custom facial reconstruction techniques employed at Rousso Facial Plastic Surgery can restore a very natural appearance when significant quantities of the cancerous tissue were removed in Mohs surgery.
