Is it better to have Mohs surgery and reconstruction performed by a dermatologist

Question:

Is it better to have Mohs surgery and reconstruction performed by a dermatologist or to have Mohs surgery performed by a dermatologist and then have the reconstruction performed by a plastic surgeon?

Answer:

It depends on the location and size of the defect to be reconstructed.  The Mohs surgeons I work with are very adept at reconstructing defects that they feel comfortable with.  For more complex Mohs defects, I will usually get consulted for the reconstruction.
