Facial Reconstruction for Skin Cancer and Mohs
While Mohs surgery helps to limit the amount of tissue removed and preserve surrounding area, there is most often a resulting hole where the cancer has been removed. This deficit can be so small that it is left to heal on its own or it may large enough to require a flap of skin taken from a donor site. Every cancer is different and proper reconstruction requires expertise, experience, and good judgment. At the Summit, patients are fortunate to have the expertise of two experience physicians, Dr. Sica and Dr. Ricciardelli to reconstruct Mohs and skin cancer surgery defects.
Dr. Sica does most of the reconstructions that can be done under local anesthesia directly after the skin cancer is removed. Dr. Ricciardelli is most often treating larger reconstructions that might require general anesthesia or reconstruction in a hospital setting. Each offers a variety of techniques that produce outstanding and natural-looking results. There is no substitution for experience and understanding when you are considering reconstruction. No two reconstructions are exactly alike and Dr. Ricciardelli’s and Dr. Sica’s approach to your surgery will depend on your needs, goals and expectations.

Dr. Sica is known for his compassionate and caring nature. “Every patient deserves an attentive physician that hears their concerns and one who is able to discuss in laymen’s terms, options for treatment. It’s important that my patients understand how Mohs works to give them the highest cure rate and best cosmetic result.” states Dr. Sica.
