Mohs Skin Cancer Repair

As a specialized technique designed to minimize the amount of skin tissue removed, Mohs micrographic surgery is highly effective at removing common skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The technique is especially appreciated when skin cancers are excised from the face, because it considers the aesthetic effects of having surgery on the face. Even so, while Mohs surgery is a conservative approach, there are times when skin cancer reconstruction is also necessary. Furthermore, secondary procedures such as laser therapy and scar revision are also useful following reconstructive surgery.

Depending on the extent of skin cancer and its removal, certain features of the face could become distorted. What’s more, skin defects could impact an individual’s senses, including smell, speech and/or eyesight. As a dual board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Maurice Khosh is renowned for impeccable results in facelift surgery, as well as rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty. Because he specializes in facial reconstruction, Dr. Khosh also aims to restore function to facial features that have been affected by cancer.

Dr. Khosh utilizes a wide range of techniques from skin grafts and skin/muscle flaps to titanium implants, tissue transfer, tissue expansion and more. For complex cases in which additional reconstruction is needed following Mohs surgery, Dr. Khosh helps patients regain a balanced, beautiful face. Some of the reconstructive surgeries performed by Dr. Khosh include:

  • Cheek Reconstruction
  • Eye Socket, Orbital Socket Repair
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Facial Paralysis Treatment
  • Keloid Scar Treatment
  • Lip Reconstruction
  • Nasal Reconstruction
  • Scalp Reconstruction
  • Scar Revision Therapy

For patients planning to undergo Mohs skin cancer surgery, Dr. Khosh recommends meeting face to face prior to the micrographic excision. This appointment allows patients to better understand the reconstructive process, and it also allows for timely scheduling for both procedures and/or treatments.

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.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

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.

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.
