Reconstruction

People are rightly concerned about the cosmetic impact of any surgery. This is particularly important of patients with skin cancer as these lesions are often in areas which have been exposed to sunlight, so by definition will be in areas visible to everyone. Whilst Mr Peach does not perform cosmetic rejuvenating surgery, he is very aware of the importance of good aesthetic results following skin cancer surgery. He is skilled in a variety of techniques to help disguise surgical scars. He is also experienced in reconstructing difficult areas of the body, eg. nose, ears, soles of feet etc all of which have specific cosmetic or functional qualities that need to be replicated by the reconstructions. He will discuss with you the options for reconstruction which will include:-

  • Direct closure
  • Split skin grafts
  • Full thickness skin grafts
  • Composite grafts
  • Local skin flaps
  • Use of dermal substitutes
  • Leaving to heal by itself (secondary intention)
