Learn About Mohs Surgery Fairfax, VA
Dermatologists commonly use Mohs micrographic surgery to excise skin cancer from the face and neck. This technique is very effective and makes it safe to leave behind as much non-cancerous skin as possible. Regardless, the resulting skin defect on the face or neck is often very visible and can have a profound impact on quality of life. Using his extensive experience with facial trauma and skin cancer patients, Dr. Kim will perform a comprehensive evaluation of the affected area and formulate an individualized plan for you. Dr. Kim’s goal is to reconstruct the appearance and function of the defect while minimizing the appearance of scars.
Most skin cancer reconstructions can be performed in the office in one stage using adjacent tissue flaps or skin grafts, but more extensive reconstructions may be safer to do in an operating room setting and may require multiple staged procedures. During your consultation, Dr. Kim will listen to your concerns, perform a thorough evaluation, and discuss all the possible options.
