Mohs Defect Reconstructions
Mohs surgery is a microscopic surgical technique for removing common types of skin cancer. Thin layers of skin are progressively removed until only cancer-free skin remains, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue unaffected. The Mohs technique is designed to minimize the possibility of a scar, yet reconstruction is sometimes required to repair and restore a patient’s appearance. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Bridge is an expert in performing Mohs defect reconstruction in Abilene, TX, helping patients regain their confidence and quality of life after cancer surgery.
