Mohs Scar Revision

New York NY Mohs Scar Revision Surgery

Skin cancer is caused mainly by direct damage from the sun. The sun’s harmful UV rays impact unprotected skin in many ways: early signs of aging, uneven skin tone, dark patches of skin, and skin cancer. When skin cancer develops on the face, not only is there the scare of a cancer diagnosis, but there is also the element of needing surgery on the facial region. The Mohs scar revision technique minimizes the extent of tissue removal, the development of scarring, and the risk of cancer recurrence. Dr. Maurice Khosh is an esteemed facial plastic surgeon who provides surgical procedures to repair facial defects following cancer removal.

The most common types of skin cancer are Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Melanoma. In the removal of cancerous tumors, deep portions of skin must often be extracted in order to make sure that all cancer cells are removed. This can leave behind a deep cavity in the face that can cause an upset to a person’s appearance. Dr. Khosh prefers to see patients in consultation before cancer excision in order to prepare for the repair procedure and to coordinate with a Mohs dermatologist surgeon before the procedure.

Any type of facial surgical procedure can be daunting, especially when the surgery is a non-elective procedure. Dr. Khosh offers compassion to patients to make the process less foreboding. Patients feel reassured that, not only will their cancer be treated, but they will also be able to regain an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Maurice Khosh, MD, FACS, is an expert in reconstruction of cancer defects in the facial region using Mohs scar revision. He is considered to be a national and world authority for consultation and secondary reconstruction of old skin cancer defects. His expertise and extensive experience allow him the proficient ability to provide outstanding outcomes to his patients.

Contact our office today to schedule a consultation to discuss primary or secondary repair of skin cancer on the face. If at all possible, contact us for a consultation before cancer removal so that reconstructive options can be more fully discussed and coordination with your Mohs dermatologist surgeon can be planned.

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.
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.

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.
