Corrective Plastic Surgery
Corrective plastic surgery for Phoenix area patients covers a huge range of procedures to correct defects from trauma, congenital issues, or cancer (among other causes). As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I have had the opportunity to treat hundreds of these problems on the head and face, body, and extremities. With every "reconstructive" surgery, I always incorporate "cosmetic" techniques to obtain the best possible result for my patients.
Medical director Dr. Robert Cohen and his associates, Dr. Steven Sigalove and Dr. Josh Olson, are certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. These talented surgeons are leaders in the field of plastic surgery and the proof is in their results.
Revision of Scars
The most common request for corrective plastic surgery I receive regards the revision of scars. Usually these scars are the result of a prior accident or surgery. Although it is impossible (with current technology) to make scars "disappear", the appearance of scars can usually be improved and camouflaged with proper plastic surgery techniques. There are many non-surgical interventions that I recommend to improve the appearance of scars, such as scar-massage, silicone sheeting, and avoidance of sun/UV exposure. If a scar is still not ideal in appearance one year after the time of the initial injury, I can often make an improvement with surgery.
Removal of Moles & Other Skin Lesions
Removal of moles and other skin lesions are another frequent reason for consultation with a plastic surgeon. Many people feel more comfortable having these skin problems removed by someone with experience in cosmetic surgery. Understanding how to properly design the removal of a skin lesion can usually make the difference between a small, hidden scar and a wide, unattractive scar.
Given the wide variety of corrective plastic surgery, I do not have the space to discuss every possible problem I am asked to treat. If you have a problem which you believe needs the help of a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, please call my office and I will be happy to see you in consultation.
