Skin Cancer Reconstruction – Flap Technique Chicago
After your cancerous lesion has been removed, skin cancer reconstruction may be required for the affected region. One option for this procedure is the flap method.
The flap method of skin cancer reconstruction features the grafting of a tissue flap from one part of the patient’s body to another in order to replace tissue. This is necessary when Mohs surgery has been used to remove skin cancer, because Mohs surgery leaves a skin wound. To correct the wound, the flap method is ideal.
