Facial cosmetic surgery makes it possible to correct many flaws and signs
of premature aging. We specialize in minimally invasive surgery with short
scar techniques and rapid recovery healing. Emphasis is placed on natural
and subtle cosmetic procedures, which enhance rather than change one's
appearance. As with all elective surgery, good health and realistic expectations
are a prerequisite.
Reconstructive surgery is a large part of the practice. We are nationally
recognized as an expert in Mohs skin cancer reconstruction. Combining
the specialties of Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)
medicine gives us particular expertise in nasal reconstruction, cosmetic
nasal surgery (Rhinoplasty & Revision Rhinoplasty), and many facial
traumatic and cancer reconstructive procedures.

Mohs skin cancer reconstruction:
After your Mohs surgery is complete your dermatologist will bandage the
wound and send you to our office. This may be done the day of surgery
or the following day. Once the bandage is removed and the defect is assessed,
the proper reconstruction will be chosen. Most defects can be repaired
with skin flaps. A skin flap utilizes local redundant tissue and is advanced
to cover the Mohs defect. For defects that are large or cannot undergo
flap reconstruction, a skin graft is often employed. A skin graft involves
removing a piece of skin from a donor site and then sewing it into the
Mohs defect. Donor sites are typically chosen from areas with excess skin
in inconspicuous locations, such as behind the ear. Whether you have a
flap or a graft, evaluation for possible further refinement with dermabrasion
is performed at approximately the sixth post-operative week. Most insurance
companies will reimburse for these services since they should be considered
reconstructive rather than cosmetic.
