Skin Cancer Reconstruction

Proper treatment of any cancer requires prompt removal, but when it’s in an exposed area like your face, nose or ears, scar placement and shape become extremely important.

The Procedure

Where possible, Dr. Shaw will hide incisions in natural skin folds. Skin is very forgiving, and even larger defects can be covered by utilizing surrounding tissues to close wounds. Nearby skin may also be used to match the facial skin as closely as possible. Scars can be further treated after healing to improve appearance.

The first goal is to successfully remove the cancer, but it is followed closely by helping to restore your natural appearance.
