Skin Cancer & Lesions
Skin lesions are a growth or blemish on the skin that can be cancerous. There are many types of skin lesions such as cysts, warts, birthmarks, and moles that are non-cancerous, but skin lesions become a concern when Melanoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) or Basal Cell Cancer (BCC) are found. It is extremely important to identify the type of skin lesion you may have early on to reduce the risk of complications from skin cancer by undergoing the correct treatment.
Skin Grafts & Flaps
Skin flaps and skin grafts involve the transplantation of skin and are used to assist with the healing of more serious wounds. Skin grafts and flaps can be used to treat a number of different conditions. The most common are:
- Extensive trauma
- Chronic wounds
- Severe burns
- Areas of prior infection
- Reconstructive surgery following major surgery for cancer.
Scar revision is plastic surgery performed to improve the condition or appearance of a scar.
Scarring after surgery, injury or serious burn can be significantly disfiguring for some people. Extremely large scars may even hinder movement or function. Today, there are effective techniques in scar revision that can minimise the appearance of lingering scars to improve function and appearance. The Randwick Plastic Surgery team offers extensive experience in scar revision procedures to help patients achieve the aesthetic results they are hoping for.
