Mohs Reconstruction - Warner Plastic Surgery
Mohs Reconstruction
Skin cancer is an increasingly prevalent condition. Mohs surgery has very high success rates in skin cancer removal, but may leave a significant defect in the area where the skin cancer is removed. Reconstructive surgery following Mohs excision is aimed at restoring a patient back to normal. Many times, a missing portion of the face following Mohs surgery may appear larger than the patient expected, leading to increased anxiety. After your consultation with a plastic surgeon, you will be reassured that there are many techniques available to restore you to a normal appearance, even when there are significant portions of the nose, eyelids, cheeks, or lips excised to remove a skin cancer. Making a consultation to discuss your concerns with Dr. Warner will be the first step in allowing us to help guide you through your process and reassure you that you will truly look very normal once again.
