Restoring Beauty: Overcoming the Results of Mohs Surgery with Facial Reconstruction

Mohs surgery is a highly effective technique for treating skin cancer, particularly in sensitive areas such as the face. While it offers unparalleled precision in removing cancerous cells, the procedure can sometimes result in visible scarring or deformities that affect the aesthetics of the face. However, with advancements in facial reconstruction techniques, patients no longer have to live with the cosmetic consequences of Mohs surgery. At the practice of Maurice M. Khosh, MD, FACS, we specialize in restoring both form and function to the face through personalized and expertly executed facial reconstruction procedures.

Understanding Mohs Surgery Repair

Mohs surgery, named after its inventor, Dr. Frederic E. Mohs, is a specialized technique used to remove skin cancer layer by layer while sparing healthy tissue. While incredibly effective at eradicating cancerous cells, Mohs surgery can leave behind defects or scars, particularly when performed on cosmetically sensitive areas such as the face. Depending on the extent of the cancerous growth, these defects may range from small wounds to larger areas of tissue loss.

Restoring Facial Aesthetics

Facial reconstruction following Mohs surgery aims to restore the natural contours and aesthetics of the face while minimizing visible scarring. Dr. Maurice M. Khosh, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial reconstruction, understands the delicate balance between preserving function and achieving cosmetic excellence. Through meticulous planning and precision techniques, Dr. Khosh customizes each reconstruction procedure to address the unique needs and concerns of the patient, ensuring natural-looking results that enhance facial harmony and symmetry.

Advanced Techniques for Optimal Results

Facial reconstruction after Mohs surgery often involves a combination of surgical approaches, including tissue rearrangement, skin grafting and flap reconstruction. These techniques allow for the precise placement of tissue to fill defects and restore lost volume, resulting in a seamless integration with the surrounding facial structures. Dr. Khosh utilizes the latest advancements in surgical technology and innovative techniques to achieve optimal outcomes with minimal scarring, helping patients regain confidence in their appearance.

Compassionate Care and Personalized Attention

At the practice of Maurice M. Khosh, MD, FACS, patient care is paramount. Dr. Khosh and his dedicated team provide compassionate support and personalized attention throughout the entire treatment journey, from initial consultation to post-operative care.

By combining technical precision with an artistic eye, Dr. Khosh helps patients overcome the results of Mohs surgery with natural-looking results that allow them to move forward with renewed confidence and vitality.

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.

Joann M.
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.
Leah G.
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.
