Skin Cancer Reconstruction/Mohs Reconstruction
Conveniently located to serve Chicago
Mohs reconstruction refers to reconstruction after removal of skin cancer. Some of the most common skin cancers can be removed by Mohs surgery which is a specialized technique performed by dermatologists to remove skin cancers while preserving normal tissues.
This is particularly important on the face, where removals of even a small amount of skin can lead to concerning scars.
Dr. Revenaugh and Dr. Smith have extensive training and experience in all types of skin cancer reconstruction. They partner with many Mohs surgeons who trust them to take care of their patients after removal of skin cancer. They are also experts in advanced reconstructive techniques to give you the best possible outcome.
Is Mohs reconstruction an inpatient or outpatient procedure?
Often it is an outpatient procedure, but the type of reconstruction determines if an overnight hospital stay is recommended.
Will Mohs reconstruction leave a scar?
All surgical procedures leave some type of scar, but the goals of Mohs reconstruction are to hide, minimize and camouflage scars as much as possible. Dr. Revenaugh and Dr. Smith are very experienced in techniques to minimize scarring.
