Skin Cancer Surgery:

Welcome to Dr Foiz Ahmed’s website, where we are committed to providing you with the highest quality plastic and reconstructive surgery services. In this blog post, we will be discussing the importance of skin cancer surgery and how it can protect both your skin and your overall health.

Skin cancer is a serious condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is crucial to detect and treat skin cancer early to increase the chances of successful treatment and reduce the risk of complications. Skin cancer surgery is one of the most effective ways to remove cancerous or precancerous cells from your skin.

Our expert team, led by the highly skilled and experienced Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Mr Foiz Ahmed, specializes in skin cancer surgery. With his expertise and dedication, you can be confident in receiving the best possible care and outcome.

During skin cancer surgery, the cancerous or precancerous cells are carefully removed from the affected area. This may involve excision, Mohs micrographic surgery, or other specialized procedures, depending on the type and stage of the skin cancer. Our team will assess your specific needs and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your condition.

The length of surgery for skin cancer removal typically ranges from 1 to 2 hours, and it is performed under general anesthesia for your comfort and safety. In most cases, patients stay in the hospital for one night and may require up to 2 weeks off work to allow for proper healing. Your surgeon will provide you with post-operative care instructions, including the use of a compression garment for 6 weeks to aid in the healing process.

It’s important to note that the recovery time and full settlement of your skin after surgery may take up to 18 months. However, throughout this journey, our dedicated team will be by your side, providing the support and guidance you need for a successful recovery.
