Mohs Surgery Repairs Newnan

We strive to perform the best Mohs surgery repairs and leave the least conspicuous scar possible. I cannot always guarantee results because of many factors beyond my control. These include: the location of your growth, your genetic risk for scarring, allergies to materials or ointments, history of diabetes, noncompliance with post op instructions, etc.

All of our closures are carried out with the utmost care and attention to detail and accordingly our revision rate is only 5 %. Sometimes we will use laser, dermasanding or intralesional corticosteroid injections to improve your scar’s appearance. We usually wait at least 6 months post-op to begin such treatments.

Below are some examples of actual closures that I have performed (WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTOS ARE DEPICTED SO VIEW WITH CAUTION). Thank you for the confidence that you have in our practice. I am here to help you and you can be sure that our Mohs surgery team will do our best for you!

Sincerely,

    Blepharoplasty

    Blepharoplasty is utilized to repair sagging eyelid skin and correct unsightly fat pads. Depending on the nature of the issue, excess skin, redundant muscle, and bulging fat pads can be cosmetically corrected in order to restore a refreshed and more youthful appearance to the eyes. CO2 Laser can be used simultaneously with this procedure to remove unwanted skin growths and improve sun damaged skin.

    Chemical Peel

    The precise formulas in peels vary and the type utilized is personally adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. For example, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth peel, which can eliminate brown spots and help to even out textural irregularities on the face and neck. Downtime is usually around 7 days. Glycolic acid peels are referred to as lunchtime peels.

    Facelift

    The “lyft” procedure is coined term that we are using to describe a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower face, neck or both. Skin and musculature is tightened in the process. Repositioning of the skin allows our patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Those who respond best have deep cheek folds and loose sagging skin around the neck. As we age, fat pads descend from the upper cheek and skin laxity becomes more prominent in the jowl regions of the face. Our lyft technique uses smaller incisions. These are hidden behind the ear folds and/or in the crease just under the chin. By minimizing incision length (and undermining), the procedure is safer and requires less downtime than that seen with a traditional facelift.
