After surgery to remove skin cancer, you may have many concerns, one of which is probably how you will look. This is especially true if the surgery was performed on a prominent and important area like your face.

Reconstructive plastic surgery after skin cancer is a delicate and specialized type of surgery, and it is important to ask a lot of questions and pay close attention to what your doctor has to say about your options.

Your dermatologist or Mohs surgeon (whoever has performed your skin cancer excision) may be able to complete your reconstruction at the time your lesion is removed, or he may refer you to a plastic surgeon for your reconstructive surgery.

This gallery contains before and after photos which may be graphic and/or unsettling. The before pictures have been taken after Mohs surgery to remove cancerous lesions from the face. The after pictures show results after reconstructive surgery to repair the defects left behind after the cancer was removed.
