Reconstructive Surgery After Skin Cancer Treatment
With extensive experience in the full spectrum of reconstructive surgery procedures, Dr. Tanna has the skill set to improve the affected areas of the face and body. If needed, he can use grafts and flaps when there has been significant tissue loss. A skin graft is a healthy piece of skin that is transplanted to a site on the patient’s body, or is transplanted to a different patient entirely. A skin flap consists of skin plus underlying tissue that includes its own blood supply.
Dr. Tanna blends the principles and techniques of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery to treat the scars and depressions left after cancer treatment performed on the face. He is dedicated to using the most advanced techniques to help a patient restore a natural look after a significant removal of skin and tissue has left the facial area looking uneven, marred, or disfigured.
