Reconstructive Plastic Surgery for Skin Lesions
Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is a highly respected leader in the field of reconstructive surgery for the treatment of skin lesions and tumors. Tumors, both cancerous and benign, vary widely in type, seriousness, and recurrence. The treatment method chosen depends on the type of growth, its growth stage, and its location on the body. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Jones will discuss your skin condition with you and explain the details of possible surgery and the options to consider. He will then work with you to determine an approach that can restore a normal appearance to your skin.
Skin Graft Surgeon
Dr. Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is a skilled and experienced skin graft surgeon. Skin lesions and cancers are usually removed by excision and closure, where the growth is simply removed with a scalpel. However, if the resulting wound is wide and difficult or impossible to close directly, it may be treated with a skin graft.
A skin graft is a piece of healthy skin taken from one area of the body, the “donor site”, and used to cover another area. If the cancer is large or spreading, major surgery may be necessary, using skin flaps to reconstruct the affected area. A skin flap is a section of living tissue carrying its own blood supply. It is moved from one area of the body to another. Flap surgery can restore form and function to areas of the body that have lost skin, fat, muscle movement, and/or skeletal support.
