Skin Cancer Reconstruction

I'm having a skin cancer is removed from my face.  How can the scar be minimalized?

Years of sun exposure in South Florida is a big risk factor for facial skin cancers. Dermatologists most often diagnose skin cancers, but patient come to us often with new facial skin lesions. Treatment typically involves removing the tumor which results in a hole in the skin. Reconstruction can be complicated but our goal is to repair this hole with minimally noticeable scars.

Reconstruction is performed using the technique most appropriate for the location and size of the hole. As plastic surgeons, the algorithm involves options such as skin flaps or skin grafts. We strive to restore your pre-cancer appearance as best as possible. Simple repairs can be done under local anesthesia, but more complicated cases are best done under general anesthesia.
