Although Mohs reconstruction is considered a reconstructive procedure, almost every patient is understandably concerned about the way they will look and how the affected part of the face will function after surgery.
A diagnosis of skin cancer can be difficult because of not only the diagnosis itself, but also realizing that there will be a defect that will result in one or more scars on the face. But you are not alone in the journey. Dr. Isaacs has expertise in Mohs reconstruction and facial surgery to minimize your scars and provide optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.
During his fellowship at UCLA, Dr. Isaacs had extensive training in Mohs surgery and reconstruction. Since then, he has continued Mohs reconstructions in both his private and academic practices, and has an additional faculty appointment in the Department of Dermatology at Loma Linda University. In fact, he started his training in Mohs reconstructions in New York City during his residency.
Dr. Isaacs is especially dedicated to Mohs reconstruction because he is able to help patients in an unfortunate and unexpected situation. He finds fulfillment to be able to help patients in a difficult time of their life. He also loves Mohs reconstruction because of the creativity required and the need to integrate both functional and aesthetic aspects of plastic surgery to optimize the patient’s outcome.
