But what does a plastic surgeon have to do with skin cancer? Although with other types of cancer a plastic surgeon will have no involvement, in skin cancer they can both remove the cancerous growth and reconstruct the skin below.
The removal of growths can be made by a dermatologist or by a plastic surgeon, but the task of reconstruction is usually undertaken by a plastic surgeon. The goal is to restore the normal form and function of the affected skin, leaving as few traces of surgery as possible.
Skin and facial reconstruction can help improve your appearance after cancer or a major accident, as well as help bring back functionality in specific circumstances. It can improve the functionality of nasal breathing, camouflage existing scars or improve the position and functioning of the lips and eyelids.
