What is Mohs Reconstructive Surgery?
A diagnosis of skin cancer can be a lot to digest, especially if the cancer is in an obvious place like the face. Mohs surgery involves a dermatologist removing layers of cancerous tissue while sparing healthy surrounding tissue, ensuring optimal preservation of function and aesthetics. The reconstructive phase addresses the resulting defect left after tumor removal. Dr. Talei aims to restore both form and function, considering the location and size of the defect. He employs reconstructive techniques, including skin grafts, local flaps and tissue rearrangement, to achieve the best cosmetic outcome. Mohs reconstructive surgery is highly individualized, with the goal of minimizing scarring and preserving the natural appearance of the treated area.
How is the type of mohs reconstruction determined for a particular case?

Dr. Talei assesses the aesthetic and functional considerations of the affected area, aiming to restore a natural appearance while preserving essential functions. Various reconstructive techniques, such as skin grafts, local flaps, and tissue rearrangement may be considered based on each patient’s specific needs.
