Mohs Facial Plastic Surgeon
Mohs surgery is the most popular and effective method for removing skin cancers. It is a highly sophisticated facial plastic surgical procedure that involves the delicate removal and microscopic examination of cancerous skin layers. This specialized excisional process continues until only cancer-free tissues remain. Although Mohs surgery is designed to minimize the amount of lost or damaged skin tissue during skin cancer removal, many patients are still left with a gaping wound or unsightly skin deficit after the procedure. Mohs reconstruction can repair these skin deficits and scars that Mohs surgery has left behind.
When it comes to the face, Mohs reconstruction can be an invaluable procedure. As a Mohs facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Spence has helped countless patients regain their self-confidence after facial skin cancer removal. He brings expertise in both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, which means Dr. Spence can restore the function and aesthetics of skin deficits caused by Mohs surgery.
