Reconstructive surgery uses repair techniques to restore the normal function and appearance of areas damaged by skin cancer. In many cases, a combination of surgical techniques are used to accomplish this task. In the simplest form of reconstructive surgery, scar revision is used to remove signs of scarring resulting from cancer surgery. Damaged tissue may also be handled through skin flap or tissue grafting. Microsurgery, such as Mohs microscopic surgery, is often used to repair skin affected by melanoma. While reconstructive surgery improves the appearance of sites damaged by cancer, it is not able to prevent recurrence of the disease.
