Achieving the best aesthetic results in Mohs and other cutaneous surgery requires proper patient selection, careful surgical technique, and meticulous postoperative care. Yet despite the best efforts of both surgeon and patient, complications may develop, sometimes resulting in suboptimal or objectionable scarring.
Mohs and Cutaneous Surgery: Maximizing Aesthetic Outcomes describes in detail the techniques and procedures that help achieve the most aesthetic results in cutaneous surgery. The book covers wound healing, surgical planning, intraoperative techniques, and complications. Also covered are surgical scar revision, dermabrasion, laser scar revision, neuromodulators and fillers, as well as topical and intralesional therapies for the improvement of scars.
