MOHS Lip Plastic Surgeon
Lip cancer is a common, yet often overlooked type of skin cancer. Cancer of the lips can be attributed to sun exposure, tobacco use and alcohol consumption. Regardless of the cause of lip cancer, the most effective way to manage it is to remove it during Mohs surgery. Mohs surgery involves the careful excision of thin cancer-containing skin layers until microscopic examination proves that only healthy tissues remain. While Mohs surgery is highly successful at removing skin cancer, it can leave disfiguring wounds and scars. This can be uncomfortable and embarrassing when it comes to the lips. Dr. Kenrick Spence is proud to be a leading Mohs plastic surgeon, which means he carries the unique ability to restore delicate facial structures to their most natural and attractive appearance after Mohs surgery.
