Mohs Surgery Makes Holes Plastic Surgeons Repair – Picture Alert
Posted Dec 01 2009 12:00am
Occasionally people ask about Mohs surgery. This is a type of surgery that mostly dermatologists perform to remove skin cancer. Its success is operator dependent and can create large wounds as the idea with most cancer surgery is to remove a cancer entirely. Large wounds particularly in sensitive areas like the tip of the nose can involve plastic surgeons who try to help minimize deformity. The patient you see here had a skin cancer on the tip of her nose that I repaired after Mohs surgery.
This is the “After Plastic Surgery Repair” picture.
