Reconstruction Options: Restoring Health and Aesthetics
Our skin cancer removal treatments focus on preserving as much healthy skin as possible while completely removing the cancerous cells. In many cases, Dr. Prucz can perform a procedure that involves removing the affected area while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This results in minimal scarring and a more natural look. Dr. Prucz specializes in the following reconstruction techniques:
- Direct Closure: When the skin cancer excision leaves a relatively small defect, direct closure involves stitching the surrounding skin together. This technique typically results in minimal scarring and optimal cosmetic outcomes.
- Local Tissue Advancement and Flaps: For larger defects or those in areas with limited skin mobility, local tissue advancement or flaps are employed. Healthy tissue adjacent to the excision site is mobilized to cover the defect ensuring both functionality and aesthetics.
- Skin Grafts: In cases where primary closure or local advancement is not possible, skin grafts are used. A piece of healthy skin is taken from another area of the body and transplanted to cover the excision site. Skin grafts help restore the skin’s protective barrier and appearance.
