MOHS Reconstruction

Mohs reconstruction is a surgical procedure that is performed after Mohs micrographic surgery, a specialized surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. Mohs reconstruction is necessary when the removal of cancerous tissue results in a significant defect or wound that requires repair.  

During Mohs micrographic surgery, a thin layer of skin is removed and examined under a microscope until no cancerous cells are found. This process is repeated until the entire cancerous lesion is removed. While this technique is highly effective, it can result in a defect or wound that requires reconstruction.  

Mohs reconstruction typically involves the use of various surgical techniques, including skin flaps and skin grafts, to repair the wound and restore the appearance of the affected area. The type of reconstruction used will depend on the location and size of the wound, as well as the patient's individual needs and preferences. 

Skin flaps involve the use of adjacent healthy skin to cover the wound, while skin grafts involve the transplantation of skin from another part of the body to the affected area. Both techniques require careful planning and precise execution to achieve optimal results.  

Mohs reconstruction is typically performed by a skilled plastic surgeon or dermatologic surgeon who has experience with the procedure. After your reconstruction, Dr. Klimczak will continue to follow your progression of healing to ensure the best possible results.

Patients may experience some discomfort and swelling following the surgery, but these symptoms can be managed with pain medication and rest. 

Overall, Mohs reconstruction is an important part of the skin cancer treatment process, helping to ensure that patients receive the best possible care and achieve the best possible outcomes.
