Cancer reconstruction

Defects created from the removal of facial cancer can be camouflaged utilizing skin flaps or skin grafts. Healthy adjacent tissue such as skin, muscle, or cartilage can be transferred to cover the area where the cancer was removed. In some cases where the cancer is large, free tissue transfer from a different area of the body is necessary. Dr. Patel has vast experience in facial cancer reconstruction.
