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.


“I would definitely recommend Dr. Kagan”

I went to see Dr Kagan because one of the breasts implants deflated and I needed and wanted to have the surgery quickly because my breasts looked different. The staff was extremely nice and understanding especially Sue. I had my surgery few days ago (very quickly from my consult appt.) and so far I am very pleased with what Dr Kagan did. I decided to do both breasts. Dr. Kagan is really nice, takes his time during the consult and everyone in the office is extremely nice. Would definitely recommend Dr. Kagan. If I had to do it again he would have been my first choice. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kagan.
