Skin Cancer Surgery

The surgical removal of skin cancer is a procedure frequently performed by plastic surgeons.  Because skin cancer will not disappear spontaneously, surgical removal is a treatment option.  There are many different techniques for removing skin cancers. Once your cancer is removed you will be left with an open wound that may require closure. Various surgical procedures may be involved in reconstruction after the skin cancer is removed. These include a local cutaneous/ local flap, skin grafting or more complicated reconstructive procedures determined by the extent of the defect created when removing your skin cancer. Your surgeon will review which surgical procedures may be required to close your wound and provide you with a functional result that is least disfiguring as reasonably possible. Sometimes more than one surgical procedure can be required to accomplish these goals.
