Skin Cancer

Ideal Patients:

  • Cancerous skin growth
  • Moles or keratoses

The Method:

As a skilled plastic surgeon. Dr. Robert Kagan can diagnose, treat and surgically remove skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma, squamus cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma) and other skin growths (moles and keratoses) in a manner that maintains function and offers a pleasing final appearance.

The Procedure:

The method used largely depends on the type of skin growth or cancer. Simple excision leaves a light, thin scar. Curettage and desiccation is a procedure that involves scraping the area and using an electric current to control bleeding and kill any remaining cancer cells. This skin cancer removal procedure leaves a slightly larger, white scar. If the cancer is large and has spread, however, major surgery may be required that can involve complex tissue transfer and body part restoration.

 

“My breasts are spectacular”

Dr. Kagan performed breast reduction on me and my breasts are spectacular! I can’t say enough about how fabulous they look. He exceeded my expectations. I had BR surgery by another Dr. years ago and he barely reduced them – so I suffered years and money with breasts that were still way too big. Thank you, Dr. Kagan. I couldn’t be happier!
