Reconstructive skin grafting may be used to replace damaged or missing skin caused by severe burns, injury, or illness.

Skin lesions are any type of abnormal growth that develops on the surface of the skin, such as warts, cysts, moles, skin tags, etc. They may be benign (non-cancerous), precancerous, or malignant (cancerous).

Whether for medical reasons or cosmetic reasons, our experienced plastic surgeons can remove the lesion with minimal trauma to surrounding tissue and the best possible aesthetic result.
