During the preoperative visit, you and your doctor will have discussed reconstruction options. However, the actual method is determined only after the skin cancer has been completely removed and the extent of the final defect is known.

Options for wound management include:

  • Letting the wound heal by itself
  • Closing the wound in a side-by-side fashion with stitches
  • Closing the wound with a skin graft or a flap

We usually complete your reconstruction on the same day. On occasion, other surgical specialists may perform the procedure because a tumor may be larger than anticipated. If you require a specialist, we will introduce you to one before your reconstructive surgery.

When the reconstruction is completed by other surgical specialists, it may take place on the same day or a subsequent day. No harm comes from delaying the reconstruction.

What’s a Rich Text element?

H1 Statement

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
