Cosmetic Repair After Skin Cancer Removal

New Yokr NY Plastic Surgeon

A diagnosis of cancer is one of the scariest moments of a person’s life. Thankfully, common types of skin cancer often respond well to Mohs surgery performed by a dermatologist. Often used on the middle part of the face, Mohs takes thin slices of tissue and examines each piece. They repeat this process until no further signs of the cancer are visible on examination.

Mohs has a high rate of success and only removes as much tissue as necessary. Even though it minimizes the amount of scarring, it does not eliminate it. For this reason, you need a skilled plastic surgeon for cosmetic repair after skin cancer removal.

What Kind of Cosmetic Repairs Can Be Done?

Your plastic surgeon should have a great deal of experience working with dermatological surgeons. This provides strong communication about the procedures, and the surgeons can work together to identify the best way to reduce as much scarring as possible. This is why Dr. Khosh often sees patients before their skin cancer surgery.

By using various reconstructive techniques, Dr. Khosh can repair facial defects resulting from skin cancer removal. The forehead, nose, cheeks and chin can be treated. Even delicate areas like the eyelids and lips can be corrected.

Following the cosmetic surgery, other treatments can further reduce scarring. Laser treatments, revisions and injections can all smooth the area and improve the results of the original surgery.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
