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

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.
