Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Based in New York City
The reconstruction of facial defects resulting from Mohs surgery for cancer removal require experienced surgical planning and execution to achieve the most natural and least noticeable outcome. Dr. Imber has performed hundreds of these delicate facial reconstructions.
Dr. Imber’s Tips!
MOHS chemosurgery is performed by dermatologists to completely remove skin cancers in difficult areas such as the nose and eyelids. The resulting defect is often sizeable, and should be followed by a reconstructive procedure done by a plastic surgeon and not by the MOHs surgeon. This is a complicated art. For years one of our contributions to the community is reconstructing difficult MOHs surgical resections, and it is important to choose your MOHS surgeon and reconstructive surgeon properly.

Generally the reconstruction is scheduled for the morning following the Mohs procedure, to allow for proper planning and consultation with the Mohs surgeon.
Your MOHs Reconstruction Surgery will be performed in Dr. Imber‘s Surgery center located in NYC.
He is very thorough, meticulous, detail oriented and you cannot negotiate services or anything with him. It’s his way or the highway. I had a lot of work done years ago long before plastic surgery was so common. My daughter went to him last year for lipo and he is exactly as thorough and precise as he was then. If you are a Botox junkie looking for quick fixes on the cheap, he probably won’t be right for you. His work is very subtle, understated, natural and undetectable.
