Our Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons,Drs. Litner and Solieman are specialists in removing facial scars and scar tissue caused by injury. Lacerations or deep penetrating injuries to the face should be treated by a scar revision specialist. Such injuries need to be repaired with meticulous closure under magnification. Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Scar Treatment specialists Drs. Litner and Solieman can make significant improvements to scars and scar tissue often even years after an injury.
As we now know, not only does heavy sun exposure contribute to the premature aging of the skin, but it is also a significant risk factor for the development of skin cancer including two of the most common forms, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. These cancers are almost never life-threatening but they can be deforming. There are many ways to treat these superficial tumors, but the most reliable is an advanced technique called Mohs Micrographic Surgery. This technique involves the meticulous incremental removal of minute layers of skin tissue which are then examined under a microscope, ensuring that all cancerous tissue is removed while surrounding healthy tissue is spared.
Mohs surgery is particularly useful for recurrent or aggressive tumors, tumors that arise in a scar, or those occurring in cosmetically sensitive areas like the lips, eyelids, or nose. In these cases, Mohs surgery can spare the surrounding healthy tissue while providing the highest potential for complete cancer removal.
While it is specialized Dermatologic Surgeons who perform Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer, Drs. Solieman and Litner are often called upon by these Dermatologic surgeons to then reconstruct the surgical site. Because a depression or hole may be left in the skin after a malignant lesion has been removed through Mohs surgery, significant reconstruction is required. Drs. Litner and Solieman have the expertise to best repair these defects and restore your anatomy and appearance while at the same time preserve the function of the facial feature which has undergone the procedure.
In many cases, our surgeons’ reconstructive procedures are so inconspicuous that the scars become virtually unnoticeable.
When it comes to skin cancer and Mohs surgery, obviously the best results are achieved when the lesions are discovered and treated as early as possible. If you or someone you know is experiencing a non-healing sore or an area of skin that is itchy, painful, or bleeds easily for an extended period of time, we encourage you to seek a skin cancer evaluation. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more details.
