If you are considering Mohs surgery that will impact the appearance of your face, it is important to plan ahead to ensure the best possible outcome. Many patients undergoing Mohs surgery on the face may require Mohs facial reconstruction surgery to restore form and function to their facial features. Mohs reconstruction surgery is a highly specialized procedure that requires a skilled plastic surgeon with experience in both Mohs surgery and facial reconstruction, like Maurice M. Khosh, MD, FACS. By planning ahead, you can ensure that you have the right team of healthcare professionals in place and that you are prepared for the healing and recovery process.

Choose a Highly Skilled Facial Plastic Surgeon

One of the most important reasons to plan for Mohs facial reconstruction surgery is to ensure that you have the right surgeon for the job. Not all surgeons have the same level of experience and expertise when it comes to Mohs surgery and facial reconstruction. Dr. Khosh is renowned for his experience and expertise in performing highly complex facial reconstruction surgeries for skin cancer patients – he is an excellent choice if you are facing facial Mohs surgery.

Another reason to plan ahead is to ensure you have a comprehensive pre-operative evaluation and consultation with your plastic surgeon. This will involve a thorough physical where Dr. Khosh will need to assess the extent of your skin cancer. Planning ahead can help determine the best options for performing an effective skin cancer removal followed by reconstruction for optimal safety and the best outcome.

Preparing for Surgery and Recovery

During the planning process, you should also discuss the potential risks and complications associated with the surgery. While Mohs facial reconstruction surgery is generally safe and effective, risks are always involved with any surgical procedure. Dr. Khosh will be able to provide you with detailed information about the potential risks and complications and help you understand what you can do to minimize these risks before and after surgery.

In addition to finding the right surgeon and undergoing a comprehensive pre-operative evaluation, planning for the recovery process is essential. Mohs facial reconstruction surgery can be a complex and lengthy procedure, and the recovery process can vary depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual patient. You may need to take time off work or make other arrangements to ensure you have the support you need during your recovery.

Planning can also help you manage your expectations for the results of the surgery. While Mohs facial reconstruction surgery can be highly effective in restoring the appearance and function of the affected area, it is important to have realistic expectations for the results. Dr. Khosh can help you understand what you can expect from the surgery and provide information about the expected outcomes and recovery time.

Planning for Mohs facial reconstruction surgery is crucial in ensuring the best possible outcome. By finding the right surgeon, undergoing a comprehensive pre-operative evaluation, and preparing for recovery, you can ensure you have the support and resources you need to achieve the best possible results. Do not wait until after your Mohs surgery to contact Dr. Khosh about Mohs facial reconstruction surgery – call his NYC office today to book your consultation.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

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
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

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.
