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.


“So good that even my dad went in”

Dr. Kagan is AWESOME. He did my DST eyelid procedure and I couldn’t be happier. My eyes look fantastic. So good that even my dad went in and had his done. His staff is always very welcoming and Dr. K has great bedside manners, is very experienced in what he does and was very informative! I didn’t expect to learn so much before my procedure and I am glad I did to better understand what he would exactly be doing. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Kagan for any future procedures and highly recommend him!
