Mohs Skin Cancer Plastic Surgeon

Amongst the most rewarding moments of a plastic surgeon’s career are those when patients thank you for making them whole again. The feeling of having had a part of you removed or taken away, naturally, comes with a sense of despair and anxiety. This is a feeling that is known all too well by patients who have suffered with cancer, particularly on the face. Dr. Rousso performs cancer reconstructive surgery on patients of all ages, many times even the most complex of reconstructions can be performed in the office under local anesthesia.

Cancer reconstruction surgeries require a skill and touch that can only be described as inspired and resourceful. Reconstructing defects of the eyelids, nose, cheek, face, lips, ears, head and neck is an artistic process that is entrusted to the subspecialized facial plastic surgeon. The expert knowledge of the intricate anatomy involved in aesthetics of normal structure is the foundation of the skilled facial reconstructive surgeon. An experienced and creative sense lends its help to form the most natural reconstructive procedure that can return the patient to normal appearance and function.
