Mohs surgery is a quality treatment known for its precision in removing cancerous skin from sensitive dermal areas while preserving the surrounding healthy tissues. While the procedure intends to decrease scarring, reconstruction surgery can provide a cosmetic repair in cases that leave a scar or indentation.
Recovery & Results
Mohs surgery and reconstruction require a healing period of four to six weeks; however, a more extended recovery period may be necessary to see the results if skin or a flap of tissue is grafted. Recovery times vary depending on the technique used to make your skin look most natural, but you should begin to see the results within several months. Dr. Gigena monitors each patient throughout recovery with follow-up appointments to ensure successful healing. He prioritizes safely delivering the most exceptional and natural-looking results.
