Lip Reconstruction Surgery
Lip reconstruction surgery can be necessary for a variety of reasons. The most common causes are skin cancer and trauma. Mohs skin cancer surgery is a great way to remove cancerous skin cells layer by layer to ensure all the cancer is gone, but in many cases, it leaves a need for lip reconstruction. This often occurs because the lips are always exposed to the sun and are therefore a frequent area for skin cancer.
Auto accidents or sports accidents can also damage the lips, requiring reconstructive surgery. A lip can become torn, burned or tissue can be gone, requiring tissue grafts to completely rebuild and recontour the lips for a normal appearance. Residents of Reno and Lake Tahoe are fortunate that when this type of extensive surgery is needed, Avance Plastic Surgery Institute is nearby to provide exceptional levels of care.
