After having Mohs surgery to remove a skin cancer lesion, Dr Haque can perform your post-Mohs reconstruction surgery. It is important to understand that there is no one “formula” for performing post-Mohs reconstructive surgery since the locations, amounts, and types of tissues affected are different from patient to patient.
Techniques which are commonly used include:
- Flap techniques (the most commonly used technique in post skin cancer facial reconstruction)
- Bone grafting (Bone is taken from the skull and shaped to be placed into the excision site.)
- Cartilage grafting (The most common donor site is the ear, but rib cartilage is also used.)
- Tissue expansion (used in a small percentage of cases)
- Skin grafts (used infrequently for facial reconstruction)
Regardless of the techniques used, Dr Haque will take care whenever possible to ensure that the resulting suture line is positioned to follow the natural creases and curves of the face, in order to minimize the appearance of your scar.
