Skin cancer is very common in the sunshine state and even more common as we get older. It is very important that we perform self skin checks on a regular basis and have a skin exam by a medical professional on a routine basis as well.
Most skin cancers, when caught early, are treated with simple removal of the cancer. Treatment becomes more difficult when these cancers grow larger or are on areas that are noticeable such as the face or neck. In these instances, a plastic surgeon may be best to treat these cancers. Plastic surgeons are trained to remove, repair and alter tissue with the utmost care and precision.
Procedures are designed and preformed in order to limit scarring and facial disfigurement. Skin cancer of the face, head and neck are cases which are best served by these techniques. Please call us to schedule a consultation to discuss your particular case.
