What Is Mohs Reconstruction?

Mohs Reconstruction is a highly specialized surgical procedure utilized to address and repair facial defects that occur following the removal of skin cancers using the Mohs micrographic surgery method. This meticulous approach involves the careful reconstruction of areas where skin cancer has been excised, aiming to restore the affected area's aesthetic appearance and functional integrity. By preserving as much healthy tissue as possible and leveraging advanced techniques such as tissue rearrangement or grafting, Mohs Reconstruction offers patients comprehensive restoration with minimal scarring and optimal cosmetic outcomes.

Is Mohs Reconstruction Right for Me?

Mohs Reconstruction is ideal for individuals who have undergone Mohs micrographic surgery to remove skin cancer lesions, resulting in noticeable facial defects. Common symptoms include visible scars, tissue loss, and asymmetry due to the cancer removal process. This procedure is suitable for those seeking to restore both the appearance and functionality of their skin, ensuring optimal cosmetic outcomes while preserving facial aesthetics. However, since each case is unique, a consultation with our team at Ascentist Plastic Surgery is necessary to assess your needs and determine the best plan for achieving your desired results.

What to Expect: The Mohs Reconstruction Procedure

The Mohs Reconstruction procedure typically follows Mohs micrographic surgery, where skin cancer lesions are removed layer by layer until no cancer cells remain, leaving behind a defect in the skin. Mohs Reconstruction involves meticulous surgical techniques to repair these defects and restore a more natural appearance of the skin. The procedure begins with anesthesia administered to ensure patient comfort throughout the process. We carefully reconstruct the affected area using advanced surgical methods, often employing techniques like tissue rearrangement, skin grafting, or flap surgery to restore both form and function. The duration of the procedure varies depending on the size and complexity of the defect but typically ranges from one to several hours. The magic within Mohs Reconstruction lies in its precision and attention to detail, aiming to achieve optimal cosmetic outcomes while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible.

Mohs Reconstruction Recovery

After Mohs Reconstruction, patients can expect some downtime for recovery. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common in the days following the procedure, but these symptoms typically subside gradually. Patients may need to take pain medications as prescribed to manage any discomfort. Following postoperative care instructions is essential, including keeping the surgical site clean and dry, avoiding strenuous activities, and attending follow-up appointments with our team. 

Gradually, as the healing progresses, patients can expect to return to normal activities, but it's essential to refrain from activities that could strain the surgical site until fully healed. The healing process varies from person to person. Still, most patients can expect noticeable improvements in the appearance of the reconstructed area as swelling diminishes and the skin continues to heal. Regular follow-up visits with our team allow for monitoring the healing progress and addressing any concerns. Don't hesitate to contact Ascentist Plastic Surgery with any questions as you heal.
