Skin Cancer and Mohs Reconstruction

Skin cancers are the most common type of cancer, and their incidence is on the rise. Many of these skin cancers arise on the face. Surgical removal is usually the best chance for cure, and most of the time, the only treatment needed. Mohs surgery is a technique used by specially trained dermatologists to ensure removal of all of the skin cancer, thus giving the highest cure rate, while also leaving behind as much normal tissue as possible. Dr. Brown has a special interest in helping skin cancer patients and works closely with his Mohs surgery colleagues to provide the best possible outcomes in reconstruction after Mohs surgery to remove facial skin cancers. Dr. Brown likes to meet with each patient before the removal of the skin cancer to discuss the possible reconstruction options and what should be expected. This allows him to design the best individualized reconstructive plan for you. The possible reconstructive options to fill in the defect of missing tissue usually include rearranging the nearby tissue, skin grafts, and local flaps. In some severe cases, more advanced reconstructive techniques may be required.
