What is Mohs Reconstruction?
After a Mohs procedure is completed there is a defect left in the skin in the area where the tumor was. This defect may be small or very large and it may be in a non cosmetic/functional area or it might be in a critical area such as the nose, eyelid, cheek, forehead or ear. Mohs reconstruction is the process of repairing this defect to restore function and/or aesthetics. Who will perform the reconstruction and what type of reconstruction depends on where the defect is located and how large it is.
