Atlanta Mohs Surgery

It is a fact that one in five individuals in America may develop skin cancer at some point in their life. Around eighty percent of cancers are on the neck, scalp, or face. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer, followed by squamous cell carcinoma which affects an estimated 250,000 Americans annually. While not all skin cancers require Mohs surgery, when there is an aggressive pathology, a recurrent tumor, or a cancer that occurs on a delicate structure such as the face, a Mohs procedure will give the highest cure rate and the best outcome. The best Mohs teams use a multidisciplinary approach with a Mohs surgeon to remove the tumor and a plastic surgeon specializing in Mohs surgery to perform closures in cases that require reconstructive surgery. We work closely with the Mohs surgeons to offer patients a highly specialized Mohs team with same day service and all procedures performed in the office under local anesthesia avoiding a trip to the hospital and operating room.

Mohs Skin Cancer Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon

Because of Mohs micrographic surgery, the cure rate for these skin cancers can exceed 99 percent. Moreover, facial lesions command highly technical reconstruction to achieve a nominal deformity and an excellent aesthetic result. The following are various principles and techniques used in Mohs Reconstruction:

• Camouflaging Incisions in relaxed skin tension lines
• Primary Closure/Elliptical closure
• Local Flap closure
• Regional Flap closure
• Skin Grafts

Expertise in Mohs Reconstructive Surgery is highly important for larger defects and for lesions that may affect areas of cosmetic significance such as the eyelids, lips, ears, and nose. The chief purpose of the reconstructive surgery for skin cancer is to repair affected areas effectively and safely, and re-establish form and function to delicate areas of the face. Additionally, meticulous skin closure techniques are important to create an imperceptible scar and an optimal outcome.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
