Mohs surgery or other removal of skin cancer from the face, head or neck may involve significant soft-tissue loss and damage to the facial structure. The defects that are created may require skin grafting or complex facial flaps to help restore form and function. Reconstructive surgery is performed either the day of or the day following Mohs surgery by the dermatologist and is available at City Facial Plastics in NYC.

Mohs surgery is the most effective treatment option for skin cancer with high rates of recovery for victims of this invasive disease. Unfortunately, many skin cancer lesions appear on the face and neck. Mohs surgery requires layers of skin and tissue to be removed until all cancer cells are gone. This can leave an extensive alteration to the appearance of the face. To restore aesthetics to the facial features, reconstructive surgery is needed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
