Skin Cancer Removal

Reconstruction After Skin Cancer

Surgically removing cancerous and other skin lesions using specialized techniques to preserve your health and your appearance.

What questions should I ask my plastic surgeon about skin cancer removal?

Use this checklist as a guide during your skin cancer removal consultation:

  • Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  • Were you specially trained in the field of plastic surgery?
  • Do you have hospital privileges to perform this procedure? If so, at which hospitals?
  • Is the office-based surgical facility accredited by a nationally- or state-recognized accrediting agency, or is it state-licensed or Medicare-certified?
  • How many procedures of this type have you performed?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • What will be expected of me to get the best results?
  • Where and how will you perform my procedure?
  • What shape, size, surface texturing, incision site and placement site are recommended for me?
  • How long of a recovery period can I expect, and what kind of help will I need during my recovery?
  • What are the risks and complications associated with my procedure?
  • How are complications handled?
  • What are my options if I am dissatisfied with the outcome of my skin cancer surgery?
  • Do you have before-and-after photos I can look at for each procedure and what results are reasonable for me?
