About “Reconstuctive Surgery”
Following the removal of your skin cancer we will discuss with you the options for repairing the surgical wound. The surgical wound will be repaired by stitching the edges together or by using a skin graft or skin flap. These repairs are usually, but not always, performed on the day of your surgery. Occasionally, we must delay the repair until the next day.
Our doctors are extensively trained in surgical reconstruction. This includes basic closures, and more complicated skin flaps and skin grafts. They perform hundreds of these procedures each year. Our goal is to provide you the best possible cosmetic result after the removal of your skin cancer.
