What Is Skin Cancer Reconstruction Surgery?

After going through Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer cells on the face, you deserve to feel and look your best again. Your next priority will be the reconstruction of the surgery site to achieve the best possible cosmetic and functional outcome.

Your Mohs surgeon can refer you to Renew Plastic Surgery where we will evaluate your surgery site and recommend the techniques and options that will give you the best result. Depending on the complexity of the reconstruction, the procedure may be performed in the office or at a nearby surgery center.

Our team of surgeons will evaluate your surgery site and recommend the most appropriate and effective procedures to give you the best results. Some reconstructive options include:

  • Flap techniques
  • Bone grafting
  • Cartilage grafting
  • Tissue expansion
  • Skin grafts

For your peace of mind, our dedicated team will go over these options before surgery, ensuring the goals and possible risks of each procedure are clear.
