Mohs Closure

If you’ve undergone Mohs surgery following a diagnosis of skin cancer, including conditions affecting the eyelid, you understand the importance of expert closure techniques not only for healing but also for cosmetic restoration. Rostami OPC in McLean, Virginia, specializes in Mohs Closure to ensure optimal outcomes after skin cancer removal, focusing on both the health and cosmetic goals of your recovery.

What is Mohs Closure?

Mohs Closure is a procedure used to reconstruct the area after skin cancer cells have been removed through Mohs surgery. Our trained oculofacial plastic surgeons carefully perform this treatment. This surgery enhances your cosmetic appearance while maintaining the skin’s functionality, especially in sensitive areas like the eyelids, where movement is essential.

Skin cancer can occur along the eyelid, presenting a unique challenge due to the delicate nature of the surrounding tissue. A new or changing eyelid lesion—whether in appearance, size, or color should be promptly evaluated by one of our oculofacial plastic surgeons. These lesions are carefully biopsied to determine their nature. If cancerous, it’s crucial to ensure that all affected tissue is removed and that the eyelid and surrounding skin are confirmed to be cancer-free through procedures like Mohs surgery or frozen section margin control.
