Mohs Reconstruction

Mohs surgery is a specialized procedure to remove skin cancer in areas of the face that are cosmetically and functionally sensitive. The success rate for cure is very high when undergoing Mohs surgery for skin cancer of the face. After Mohs surgery, the remaining defect requires intricate reconstruction to build the loss of skin and/or soft tissue to restore both the aesthetic and possible function of the missing tissue. Dr. Han gained extensive experience in Mohs reconstruction during her early career in California. In most cases the repair can be completed in one surgery. However, in some cases multiple stages and procedures may be required. Mohs reconstruction requires attention to aesthetic detail particularly around the nose. Dr. Han has a special interest in nasal reconstruction after Mohs surgery. She utilizes her skill sets from cosmetic surgery to help her reconstructive surgery and vice versa.
