Mohs micrographic surgery stands as a highly effective treatment for skin cancer, particularly when dealing with complex cases on the face. Dr. Casian Monaco, based in New York City’s Upper East Side, excels in this meticulous procedure. Mohs surgery involves the layer-by-layer removal of cancerous cells, offering a high cure rate while minimizing the removal of healthy tissue. This technique is especially crucial for facial skin cancers, where preserving both function and aesthetic is paramount.

The Role of a Plastic Surgeon in Mohs Surgery

Why choose a plastic surgeon like Dr. Monaco for Mohs surgery? The answer lies in the delicate balance between oncological thoroughness and cosmetic finesse. Following the removal of skin cancer, particularly on the face, reconstructive expertise is essential. Dr. Monaco’s dual focus on oncological effectiveness and aesthetic restoration ensures not just health, but also the preservation and enhancement of facial appearance.

Combining Oncological Rigor with Aesthetic Artistry

Mohs surgery demands a surgeon with a keen eye for detail and a delicate hand. Dr. Monaco’s role extends beyond mere cancer removal; he’s tasked with the intricate job of reconstructing the treated area. This often involves complex techniques to ensure that the aftermath of surgery is as inconspicuous as possible, blending seamlessly with the surrounding skin.

Advantages of Mohs Surgery for Facial Skin Cancer

Opting for Mohs surgery under the expertise of a plastic surgeon like Dr. Monaco offers numerous benefits:

  • High Success Rate: Mohs surgery has a high cure rate for basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Tissue-Sparing Technique: Removes only cancerous tissue, preserving as much healthy skin as possible.
  • Aesthetic Consideration: Ensures minimal scarring and the best possible cosmetic outcomes.
  • Customized Reconstruction: Tailored reconstructive techniques to suit each patient’s unique facial structure.
