MOHS micrographic surgery named after Dr. Frederic E. Mohs is a highly advanced and precise technique for removing skin cancers while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. The procedure involves surgically removing a skin cancer layer by layer and examining the tissue under a microscope for evidence of tumor roots and repeating the process until a cancer free margin is reached. Dr. Litani, your fellowship trained dermatologist will serve as a cancer surgeon, identifying and removing your cancer, a pathologist, determining if your margins are cleared and the cancer is cured, as well as a plastic reconstructive surgeon, to ensure the best cosmetic result. Mohs micrographic surgery offers the highest potential cure rate, up to 99%.
Surgical earlobe repair
Dr. Carin Litani, our Fellowship trained Mohs and reconstructive surgeon, can repair damaged, torn, or altered earlobes. If your earrings hang too low or you feel you can not wear certain earrings, please call and schedule a consultation. Other stretched, torn, or split earlobes, as well as those with abnormal scarring or keloid formation are also great candidates for an earlobe repair with Dr. Litani. This procedure removes the abnormal piercing and tightens and lifts the earlobe for a firmer and smaller earlobe.
