My blog visitors occasionally ask if as a plastic surgeon I treat skin cancer. In this economy, I am actually doing a fair amount of skin cancer. Sun exposure in Orange County California is part of our way of life. We could use a bit more sunscreen.
The patient you see to the right here had a skin cancer appear on her eyelid. She wanted a plastic surgeon to remove it and was referred to me by a local doctor. We were able to remove it under local anesthesia (numbing shots) alone.
