Mohs Reconstruction

Mohs reconstruction is a specialized surgical procedure performed to repair defects in the skin resulting from Mohs micrographic surgery, a highly precise technique used to treat skin cancer. Mohs reconstruction aims to restore the appearance and functionality of the skin following the removal of cancerous lesions while minimizing scarring and preserving aesthetic outcomes.

If you’ve undergone Mohs micrographic surgery to treat skin cancer and require reconstruction to repair skin defects, Mohs reconstruction can help restore the appearance and function of your skin while minimizing scarring. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Sara R. Dickie to discuss your options for Mohs reconstruction and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. With her expertise and compassionate care, you can achieve optimal outcomes and regain confidence in your skin’s health and appearance.

The Basics

Mohs surgery is unique in its collaborative process, often involving a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including dermatologists, pathologists, and reconstructive surgeons. The close collaboration allows for a comprehensive approach to skin cancer removal, ensuring that both the cancer and its microscopic roots are fully excised. This team-based method also facilitates seamless transition to reconstructive surgery if needed, providing a holistic treatment plan for patients undergoing Mohs surgery.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for Mohs surgery is someone diagnosed with specific types of skin cancer, such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma. This procedure is particularly effective for these cancers because it involves the precise removal of cancerous tissue while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Candidates with skin cancer that has a high risk of recurrence or is located in sensitive areas, like the face or hands, often benefit from the meticulous technique used in Mohs surgery.
