Cancer Treatment Procedures in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Cancer treatments vary according to the type of cancer, the stage of the cancer, and the location of the cancerous growth. One of the concerns for those diagnosed with cancer is the disfigurement or scars that often result from cancer treatment. For instance, skin cancer treatments for conditions like melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma involve the removal of any visible lesion, including the removal of subdermal cancerous tissue underneath the growth. This results in a wound that requires the expertise of a cosmetic surgeon to close the wound, and restore a more normal appearance to the patient. Following a mastectomy, a reconstructive breast surgery helps recreate more normal looking breasts. Dr. Phillips of Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Spa offers cancer treatment procedures to residents of Fort Lauderdale, FL, and other surrounding cities.
