Mohs Reconstruction

About three and a half million Americans suffer from skin cancer annually, with the highest occurrence on the face. As part of the skin cancer treatment, many undergo Mohs surgery, an advanced surgical procedure that removes affected skin off the face. Mohs surgery often leaves the patient’s face deformed. At Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills, we offer Mohs reconstruction to reconstruct the face deformed by Mohs surgery. Dr. David Shamouelian, a highly-trained facial plastic surgeon, specializes in Mohs reconstruction, an advanced surgical reconstructive procedure.

Reconstructive

Patients who undergo Mohs reconstruction surgery at Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills are normally treated under local anesthesia and are able to go home immediately after the procedure. Dr. Shamouelian expertly reconstructs the affected area of the face with a keen eye for balance, symmetry and function. Most patients require a single reconstructive procedure, while others may require additional touch ups. Dr. Shamouelian’s expertise pertains to reconstruction of the Head and Neck Area including the nose, faces, and ears. Completing a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has given him a skill set to restore both function and aesthetics. The reconstruction is planned once all cancer cells have been confirmed to be removed by the dermatologist. Depending on the are to be treated, Mohs reconstruction surgery could take anywhere from 30-120 minutes to complete.

What to Expect After the Procedure

Most of our patients at Allure report
significant nasal improvements
within three to six weeks following
the septoplasty. Minimum pain and
discomfort is normal during the
recovery period. Typically, patients
return to work a day or two after
the surgery, but we recommend
patients to refrain from any
strenuous activities for about a
week.

How it works

Most septoplasty for deviated
septum takes about an hour to
complete and may be done under
local or general anesthesia. The two
types of septoplasty procedures are
the traditional procedure, which
involves the open technique, and
the minimally invasive internal
procedure. Both procedures involve
lifting the mucus membrane,
repositioning or removing the bone
or the cartilage that is blocking the
airway, and then replacing the
mucus membrane and stitching it
back in place.

Cost

This procedure is covered by most
major health insurance providers. If
this does not apply to you, the cost
of septoplasty for deviated septum
depends on each patient’s unique

procedure is. Feel free to discuss
your concerns about your insurance
plan and costs during your initial
