Mohs surgery is a specialized procedure used to treat skin cancers. This extensive process can leave large, gaping wounds that require specialized surgical reconstruction.

Patients in McKinney and Frisco can consult with Dr. Rana to discuss optimal repair and reconstruction to ensure their natural, fully-functioning facial repair.

How Does the Reconstruction Process Work?

No two Mohs surgeries are the same, so your initial procedure will go a long way towards dictating how your reconstruction surgery goes. Based on the size and location of the treatment area, Dr. Rana will talk you through everything you can expect. He’ll talk over the specifics of the procedure, including the specific method he’ll be using.

This procedure usually doesn’t require general anesthesia, and can take anywhere from about 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the details of your initial treatment area. We’ll talk you through everything you might need to know about aftercare and the recovery process, as well.

Methods for Mohs Reconstruction

Your treatment area is going to dictate the type of reconstruction surgery that winds up being best for, which Dr. Rana will go over during your consultation. Given his training and experience, he can use a few different types of technique, each one adept at addressing a specific type of Mohs surgery repair.

Primary and Local Flap Closures

For smaller treatment areas, simple sutures can be used to close up a wound and encourage healing. For larger treatment areas, Dr. Rana can use tissues located nearby to help out and give a boost to the wound healing process.

Skin Grafts

Skin grafting is a fairly simple process by which skin from another part of the body is used to reconstruct the wound left behind by Mohs surgery. In instances where the treatment area involves cartilage, this is a great option.
