Skin Cancer Doesn’t Have To Permanently Change You

Skin cancer on your face can be a frightening experience. For patients who require extensive removal of damaged or cancerous tissue, many worry about how their faces will look afterward. Defects caused by skin cancer removal can make you self-conscious about how you look, negatively impacting how you show up for your job and social life. Dr. Robb understands how tough this is, this compassion is what compelled him to specialize in facial reconstruction after Mohs resection.

What Is Mohs Resection?

Mohs resection is a specialized surgery performed by a specially trained dermatologist that removes skin cancer from areas of the body, with the goal of creating the smallest defect possible. Despite best efforts, patients can still suffer from unsightly defects of varying sizes and depths after surgery. Whenever possible, Dr. Robb likes to collaborate with the surgeon performing the Mohs resection.

Is Facial Reconstruction After Mohs Right For Me?

If you have unappealing depressions in your face after skin cancer removal and want to look your best, we can help. There are many options when it comes to facial reconstruction, and a facial surgeon with experience and discernment is vital for the best results. Dr. Robb is double board certified in facial reconstruction and head and neck surgery, and is considered a super subspecialist with this procedure. When assessing patients for facial reconstruction, Dr. Robb takes into account lifestyle, medical history, and aesthetic goals to determine the best approach.

What Is Recovery Like?

Recovery time varies according to the scope of correction needed. Dr. Robb will make you a custom aftercare plan with a healing timeline and instructions for post-operative care. As healing takes place, surgical sanding as well as other scar-hiding procedures can be performed to further camouflage signs of the cancer resection. 

At Robb Facial Plastic Surgery we offer a Rapid Recovery Program that utilizes Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to accelerate healing. HBOT therapy infuses your body with higher levels of oxygen which catalyzes cell reparation and reduces inflammation and scarring. A member of our team can explain HBOT to you further if you are a candidate.
