Before and After Basal Cell Surgery with Mohs
Below you can see some more in-depth pictures of before and after skin cancer. This young woman in her 30’s came in for a check-up after having Mohs skin cancer surgery a month ago on her forehead. She had squamous cell carcinoma. In a previous video, we showed you Don’s testimonial for reconstructive surgery where he now advocates for the early prevention of skin cancer after his 11 Mohs surgeries. Although this patient’s surgery was much smaller with only six sutures, Dr. Mejia was able to spot another basal skin cancer on her nose which had previously gone unnoticed by other dermatologists, and subsequently removed it. As you can see in the before and after skin cancer pictures, she has no scarring.

Testimonials from Patientsafter Skin Cancer Surgery with Dr. Mejia
Dr. Mejia was doing a reconstructive surgery on a patient’s nose after the patient underwent Mohs skin cancer surgery. Dr. Mejia performs both procedures. This alleviates the patient from having to go seek another doctor to do plastic surgery after the Mohs. Not only does it save time and stress, it also is cost effective.

Dr. Mejia discusses the importance of early skin cancer detection. For many years, this patient thought he had a birth mark on his arm. Unfortunately, it was a basal cell carcinoma and Mohs skin cancer surgery was performed.
