Often, the best way to remove skin cancer while preserving as much normal tissue as possible is to undergo skin cancer surgery. However, it is likely that the cosmetic result of a simple close following surgery will be less than satisfactory. Many patients will seek the help of a plastic surgeon to restore their appearance to as close to normal as possible, especially on the face.
Lenox Plastic Surgery & Skin Center of Berkshire Medical Center specializes in reconstructive surgery to rebuild areas damaged by a tumor or by skin cancer surgery to remove a tumor. Our fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Rodrigo Santamarina, M.D., and skilled support staff use a full range of techniques, including flap techniques, bone, cartilage and skin grafting and tissue expansion.
Regardless of the technique used, we will ensure that the resulting suture line is positioned to follow the natural creases and curves of the face in order to minimize the appearance of your scar.
To make an appointment with Dr. Santamarina at the Lenox Plastic Surgery & Skin Center of BMC, ask your physician for a referral or call us at 413-344-1750.
