The Basics

Mohs surgery is often chosen for its focus on preserving aesthetics, particularly when removing skin cancer from areas like the face or neck. The technique allows surgeons to minimize the removal of healthy tissue, reducing scarring and helping to maintain the natural contours of the affected area. This makes Mohs surgery an excellent option for patients who prioritize cosmetic outcomes in addition to effective cancer treatment.

Who is a good candidate?

Mohs surgery is often recommended for patients with skin cancer in cosmetically sensitive areas where tissue preservation is crucial. This includes the nose, lips, ears, and eyelids. These candidates benefit from Mohs surgery’s accuracy, which minimizes scarring and allows for better functional and aesthetic outcomes. By removing only the affected tissue, this approach helps maintain the structure and appearance of these delicate areas.
