Skin Cancer removal is the comprehensive approach to addressing cancerous lesions while prioritizing aesthetic outcomes. Dr. Yco employs advanced techniques to excise skin cancers, ensuring the complete removal of abnormal cells while minimizing the impact on the surrounding healthy tissue. This process often includes precise incisions and closures that take into account the natural contours of the skin, with the goal of minimizing scarring. By combining medical expertise with a keen understanding of cosmetic principles, Your Cosmetic Office offers a unique and holistic approach to skin cancer removal, where the focus extends beyond solely eradicating the disease to include thoughtful consideration for the patient’s aesthetic appearance.
The ideal candidate for skin cancer removal is someone diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer or certain early-stage melanomas, seeking not only effective treatment but also a concern for aesthetic outcomes. These individuals may have skin cancers located on visible areas of the face, neck, or other cosmetically sensitive regions, and they prioritize a comprehensive approach that addresses both health and appearance. Ideal candidates may also include those with a history of previous skin cancer removals, desiring a refined and minimally scarring result. Other skin concerns that Dr. Yco can address include:
He can also perform Z plasty and scar excision to help smooth the appearance of the skin. The best way to determine your candidacy for these procedures is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yco.
PATIENT TESTIMONIALS: THE IMPACT OF YCO
“He knows my facial features and does a great job every time”
Love Dr. Yco and staff! I always have a great experience when I go to the office! I’ve been to a few different offices to have my Dysport done, and he is definitely the best! He knows my facial features and does a great job every time, and I never need to come back to have a spot treatment. I recommend Dr. Yco and staff 100%!!
The procedure typically begins with a thorough examination and diagnosis of the skin cancer type, size, and location. Once determined, Dr. Yco plans the removal process, considering the preservation of surrounding healthy tissue and the overall appearance of the treated area. The actual removal is performed with precision, utilizing advanced surgical techniques to excise the cancerous tissue while minimizing scarring. Closure of the incision is executed with careful attention to cosmetic outcomes, often incorporating techniques such as layered closures or specialized suturing to optimize healing and reduce visible scarring.
Postoperative care involves monitoring for optimal healing and following instructions on scar management, ensuring that you not only achieve successful skin cancer removal but also maintain a smooth and minimally scarred result.
