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 HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kagan”

Dr. Kagan recently performed a facelift procedure on me. He does an unbelievable job. He definitely keeps current on new procedures and has had a lot of years of experience. What I appreciated about Dr. Kagan was his great work and professionalism. He was so easy to talk with. He really listened to what I wanted! He is very kind and encouraging. He wants his patients to be happy with their results. I also appreciated his staff. Ever person on his staff are incredibly kind, sweet and helpful. They too listen to you and want to help. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kagan if you are considering any plastic surgery. I believed so much in his work that I was willing to drive 3 hours for my facelift. Thank you Dr. Kagan and staff!
