Skin Cancer Surgery

Plastic surgeons frequently perform the surgical removal of skin cancer. Surgery is the treatment of choice to remove the skin cancer because they will not go spontaneously. There are various techniques to remove skin cancer. The moment the skin cancer has been removed, there will be an open wound that requires closure and this may involve different surgeries for the reconstruction of the skin. Reconstructive surgeries include a local cutaneous or local flap, skin grafting or a more complex reconstructive procedure, which depends on the severity of the open wound, made after the removal of the skin cancer. The plastic surgeon will determine which surgical procedure is suitable for the closure of the wound and provide a result that is functional and least disfiguring as possible. At times, not only one surgery can achieve these results.
