Skin Cancer Wound Repair – Not so Pretty Plastic Surgery

The removal of large skin cancers produces large holes. Part of plastic surgery can be the repair to reduce the deformity left behind. Sometimes plastic surgery is not so pretty.

P.S. All this is in a way courtesy of my cosmetic patients. Health insurance pays poorly for this kind of work, so cosmetic surgery helps subsidize it. If it weren’t for my cosmetic practice, I would be able to do none of these cases.
