The goal in cosmetic surgery is to always achieve the best personal appearance for you. Everyone is an unique individual with special concerns and desires.

After a complete evaluation, your doctor thoroughly discusses the proposed treatment and answers all your questions. Our team works to educate you about what you can expect before and after the operation. To assure your comfort and privacy, we provide all evaluations in our private office setting. Surgery can be performed confidentially at any one of several out-patient facilities depending on your wishes.

BASAL CELL SKIN CANCER (Most common), SQUAMOUS CELL SKIN CANCER (Less common), MALIGNANT MELANOMA (Increasingly common): Any skin lesion that does not heal in 4 to 6 weeks is suspicious for skin cancer, especially in people with previous or recent sun exposure. The Center's surgeons can remove common skin tumors of any size or type, and provide expert plastic reconstruction. Any physician can remove a skin cancer, but our expert plastic surgeons offer optimal care with the most cosmetically acceptable results. We are closely affiliated with the Cancer Institute of New Jersey in New Brunswick.

The most advanced treatment for skin hemangiomas, tumors, and birthmarks is offered by the surgical team. We work in close cooperation with pediatricians, pediatric anesthesiologists and other professionals to provide comprehensive care for your child. While scarless surgery is not yet possible, our aim is always to correct your child's problem with the least amount of scarring.

COMPLEX CASES, SECOND OPINIONS (or THIRD), REASSURANCE, UNSATISFACTORY OUTCOME: The surgeons at the Center are nationally and internationally recognized experts in their fields, and we offer consultation and second opinion service for any problem related to cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery. Our independent evaluations can help you decide on the best course of action for treatment of your condition. We may confirm the advantages of your present course of therapy, or offer an alternative approach. We provide this service in the strictest confidentiality.

FREE FLAPS (Tissue transplantation), NERVE REPAIR, HAND BLOOD VESSEL REPAIR, WORK-RELATED FINGER OR HAND REATTACHMENT: The surgeons at the Center use sophisticated "tissue transplantation" to rebuild defects from trauma, tumors, or other deforming conditions. Our doctors are specially trained in the most advanced techniques in microsurgery in order to achieve the complex reconstructive demands required for defects of the leg, arm and head. The microsurgical team performs emergency finger, limb, scalp and ear reattachment operations related to work injury, in addition to delayed reconstruction. We can arrange transfer of hospitalized patients to our service from other hospitals where these sophisticated services are not available.
