Cancer Treatment Procedures in Boca Raton, FL
Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, MD, PA, FACS offers cancer treatment procedures to residents of Boca Raton, FL, and other surrounding cities. The various cancer procedures include the treatment of skin cancer, such as melanoma, and breast reconstruction. A mastectomy is a procedure performed to surgically remove breast tissue, either to treat or to prevent cancer. The outcome is either a total removal of the breast tissue and nipple, or the removal of the tumor and a partial amount of the cancerous tissue surrounding it. Breast reconstruction rebuilds the shape of the breast following the mastectomy, resulting in a more normal appearance. Dr. Phillips offers cancer treatment procedures to residents of Boca Raton, FL.
Cancer Treatment Procedures
The exact procedures that Dr. Phillips performs will depend on the particular issue he is trying to correct or treat. Breast reconstruction is a layered process that often requires more than one surgery; he will place the selected implant in the breast, add a nipple, and adjust the size of the other breast to better match the reconstructed one in the event the mastectomy was only carried out on one breast. Skin cancer treatment may require specialized surgical intervention to remove cancerous growths and other skin lesions. After the treatment, Dr. Phillips will reconstruct the surgical area to improve your appearance. Residents of Boca Raton, FL, can contact Dr. Phillips at Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Spa.
