What is Facial reconstructive surgery?
Facial plastic surgery also includes facial reconstructive surgery. This may include skin cancer surgery, Mohs cancer surgery, cleft lip surgery, facial trauma, and also scar revision surgery. Facial plastic surgeons specialize in fixing large or delicate facial wounds from either skin cancer or trauma.
Skin cancer is unfortunately an extremely common occurrence in the U.S and nearly 80% of these cancers are on the face, neck, and scalp. The most common type of skin cancer is basal cell carcinoma followed by squamous cell carcinoma. Generally, skin cancers are removed via a specialized technique called Mohs micrographic surgery. This multidisciplinary mode of care includes a Mohs surgeon and a facial plastic surgeon specializing in Mohs surgery to close the resulting defect.
While many reconstructive closures are handled comfortably by the Mohs surgeon, occasionally the expertise of a board certified facial plastic surgeon or head and neck surgeon is required to close either large areas or defects close to vital structures of the face.
Dr. Lozada has extensive experience in Mohs reconstructive surgery. He spent a significant amount of his training with one of the highest level, busiest reconstructive surgeons in NYC and also performed hundreds of office-based closures. With this unparalleled experience, he can perform these reconstructive surgeries at his office under local anesthesia so you feel comfortable. If you have skin cancer or require any type of facial reconstructive surgery please contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lozada!
