Skin Cancer Therapy
Treatment of skin cancer, much like any form of cancer, may require surgery to remove cancerous growths. Dr. Kutka can surgically remove cancerous and other skin lesions using specialized techniques to preserve your health and your appearance.
Although no surgery is without scars, Dr. Kutka will make every effort to treat your skin cancer without dramatically changing your appearance. For some people, reconstruction may require more than one procedure to achieve the best results.
Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.
Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include simple topical treatments, minimally invasive procedures, or surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure. Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.
