Skin cancer is a prevalent condition affecting millions of people annually in the U.S. While Mohs surgery stands as an effective treatment for halting the spread of skin cancer, the procedure may involve the removal of tissue and skin, potentially impacting the patient’s appearance. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a highly skilled double board-certified plastic surgeon at Vantage Plastic Surgery, offers Mohs surgery for skin cancer with expert cosmetic reconstruction at our advanced clinics in NYC. This integrated approach ensures not only the eradication of skin cancer but also the restoration of optimal facial aesthetics.


The Gold Standard: Mohs Surgery for Skin Cancer

Mohs surgery is widely regarded as the gold standard for skin cancer treatment, demonstrating exceptional efficacy in removing all cancer cells from the affected area. The procedure involves the progressive removal of the outer layer of skin cells, one layer at a time. Each layer is meticulously examined under a microscope to identify the presence of any cancer cells. If cancer cells persist, additional layers are removed until the area is clear of cancer. This meticulous process may entail the removal of several or even dozens of tissue layers to achieve a cancer-free result.

While any general surgeon or dermatologist can perform Mohs surgery, these practitioners may not possess the specialized expertise in facial reconstruction. Given that many skin cancer lesions occur on the face, Mohs surgery has the potential to leave a significant void in the tissue, leading to facial deformities. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, leveraging his proficiency in plastic and reconstructive surgery, ensures that not only is the skin cancer eradicated, but facial aesthetics are also meticulously restored. Techniques such as fat and skin grafting, as well as cartilage grafting for features like the nose or ear, may be employed to achieve both functional and aesthetic reconstruction .

Facial Reconstruction After Mohs Surgery

The marriage of Mohs surgery and plastic reconstruction serves as a powerful strategy to address both the cancer concern and the restoration of skin appearance. When faced with a skin cancer diagnosis and a recommendation for Mohs surgery, the expertise of a plastic and reconstructive surgeon can make a significant difference in achieving optimal results.
