HAND AND SKIN PROCEDURES
Many advanced surgical solutions are available for a wide variety of issues relating to degenerative disorders, cancer, moles, wounds, and scars.
Major advances have been made treating patients with hand injuries, degenerative disorders, and birth defects of the hand. Plastic surgeons undergo intensive training in hand surgery, and they treat patients with a wide range of hand problems.
Skin cancer is diagnosed by removing all or part of a skin growth and examining its cells under a microscope. It can be treated by a number of methods, depending on the type of cancer, its stage of growth, and its location on your body.
Many people have anywhere from 10-50 moles on their body, all ranging in size, color and shape. Some are brown, tan or pink, round or oval, flat or even raised.
While your plastic surgeon may repair a wound with a direct closure, reconstruction may also include a skin graft, flap surgery, tissue expansion or microsurgery. The type of trauma and wound you exhibit will determine how you are treated.
Plastic surgeons can often improve the appearance of a scar, making it less obvious through the injection or application of certain steroid medications or through surgical procedures known as scar revisions.
