Facial Reconstructive Surgery / Maxillofacial Trauma

Facial Reconstruction After Moh's Surgery

Many patients request that Dr. Hohuan repair their Mohs surgery defects. It is very easy to coordinate care with Dr. Hohuan and the Mohs surgeon. Patients who desire the optimal cosmetic result come to see Dr. Hohuan at least one week prior to the Mohs procedure. Dr. Hohuan’s office will then coordinate the repair with the office of the Mohs surgeon. Both procedures are performed on the same day. For patients who do not yet have a Mohs surgeon, Dr. Hohuan will refer these patients to one of the excellent Mohs surgeons that he works with.

It is very common for patients to request that a facial plastic surgeon repair their Mohs surgery defect. Any patients who are scheduled to have a facial skin cancer removed can contact Dr. Hohuan’s office with any questions at (928) 723-3004

Mohs micrographic surgery is a procedure that is performed by dermatologists with advanced training in the removal of certain skin cancer types. These procedures are performed in the dermatologist’s office. Following removal of the skin cancer, a surgical defect that almost always requires repair remains. Dr. Hohuan utilizes highly specialized techniques to minimize the appearance of the scar. As a facial plastic surgeon, he seeks to retain the natural appearance of the facial features.


Maxillofacial Trauma

Maxillofacial trauma comprises soft tissue and bony injuries to the entire face and neck. Most commonly, accidents result in injuries to the mandible/jaw, nose, bone around the eyes/orbits, and ears. Dr. Hohuan has extensive training and experience in repair and rehabilitation of trauma that involves any soft tissue or bony structure throughout the entire face, head, and neck. He understands how these injuries can have a profound impact on one’s life (visual loss, hearing loss, scars, problems with bite, inability to breathe) and does his utmost to restore these to their pre-injury state through a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy of the head and neck, and the use of advanced techniques learned through years of study.
