The answer depends on the size and location of the lesion. A Mohs surgeon is a highly trained dermatologic surgeon that specializes in removing cancerous cells while leaving healthy tissue intact. This technique takes years of specialized training to learn and perform. Depending on the size and location of the defect, your Mohs surgeon may also elect to reconstruct the area.
Large and complicated defects are frequently referred to Facial Plastic & Reconstructive surgeons like Dr. Kolstad. Given the complexity of the reconstruction it is frequently in the patients best interest to repair the tissue the day after removal.
