Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting one in five Americans by age 70. A surgery like Mohs may be needed to remove more invasive types of skin cancer. Skin cancer reconstruction by a skilled plastic surgeon can help patients return to daily life without worrying about the scars left after surgery and wound healing.
Dr. Karen Leong performs skin cancer reconstruction so the scars originating from skin cancer surgery are less noticeable and blend into the skin tone. This becomes especially important when the scar is on a frequently exposed part of the skin, like the face, or where there is frequent movement.
