Skin Cancer Screening and Removal

Skin Cancer Screening and Surgical Removal

The gold standard for skin cancer treatment is surgical removal. Since the best treatment is surgical, doesn’t it make sense to have a plastic surgeon treat your skin cancer?

Although there are many types of physicians who treat skin cancer, the best physician to cure and reconstruct skin cancer is a Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Viggiano, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, has been trained to not only diagnose and cure skin cancer (without the need to resort to time consuming and expensive Mohs Surgery), but to reconstruct the tissue that was lost. From the simplest removal and fine line scar closure to rebuilding a nose, an ear, or an eyelid, Dr. Viggiano knows the latest techniques to make the experience low stress and to provide the most aesthetic result possible.

Reconstructing the lip for cancer may require a wedge removal of the cancer with closure.

Direct closure with stitches of the defect following skin cancer removal is the gold standard treatment and usually heals with an excellent scar.

Rebuilding the lower lid can be performed using nearby skin from the temple.

Reconstructing the upper eyelid can be performed using skin as a graft from another area.

Reconstructing the nose can be performed by advancing skin from above the defect.

Direct closure with stitches of the defect following skin cancer removal is the gold standard treatment and usually heals with an excellent scar.
