I sought out Dr. Patel following MOHS surgery for Basal Cell Carcinoma on my face. The cancer had been removed by my dermatologist the day before I went to Dr. Patel for the closure. I had not seen the "divot" left from the cancer removal until I was sitting with Dr. Patel because it had been thoroughly bandaged by the dermatologist. I have to admit that I was a little shocked by how big it was. I wondered if it was going to be possible to bridge that gap and make it look natural. Dr. Patel explained my options and made recommendations as to which one would probably give me the best results. He then carefully sutured the tissue back together in such a way that would take advantage of my natural contours and creases. It has now been 8 months since the surgery, and the results have been great. People I encounter cannot tell that I ever had surgery to my face. Very pleased!
