Mohs Plastic Surgery
Skin cancer is one of the deadliest cancers if not treated promptly and properly. For patients that have cancerous lesions on the face, surgical removal is necessary. While Mohs surgery is considered the most successful and refined technique for removing skin cancer, it can still leave unsightly or gaping wounds in highly visible areas of the face. This can be a significant setback for patients that are trying to overcome skin cancer. To ensure your skin cancer is effectively removed without compromising your appearance, a skilled Mohs reconstructive plastic surgeon is essential. Dr. Kenrick Spence of Hillcrest Plastic Surgery is proud to be one of the country’s most trusted Mohs plastic surgeons. He understands the intricacy and artistry required to produce ideal results in this complex skin reconstruction.
