Skin Cancer Treatment
Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in the United States, making skin cancer treatment one of the most important procedures that Dr. Chen offers. There are many different kinds of skin cancer, but the most common ones are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. The most common cause of skin cancer is overexposure to the sun.
Because skin cancer is so common today, it is absolutely crucial to be inspected by a trained medical professional at the earliest sign of a problem. The earlier that skin cancer treatment is begun with Dr. Chen near Aiken, South Carolina, the more likely it is to be successful. It is always important to remember that this skin cancer treatment can only remove tumors on the skin. If cancer has developed in another part of the body, additional surgery or chemotherapy may be required.
The most effective skin cancer treatment is surgery that removes the affected area of skin. This type of surgery is extremely precise, requiring the sort of surgical skill that only a true expert possesses. Dr. Chen takes great care when performing this procedure, making sure that all cancerous cells have been removed so that the tumor has the best chance of not returning, while also preserving as much healthy skin and tissue as possible.
A mole is a darkened patch on the skin that is often raised. Moles are very common, and most are harmless. However, in some cases a mole may signify developing skin cancer. If you have a mole that has grown or changed in appearance, it is important to visit Dr. Chen so that he can remove it and have it analyzed. This is an important part of early skin cancer detection.
Most moles are benign (i.e. non-cancerous). Many people nonetheless decide to have them removed, as they may interfere with activities like shaving or may simply be an eyesore. Dr. Chen removes them using a minimally invasive procedure that leaves little or no scarring, rendering the skin smooth and mole-free.*
*Individual results and recovery may vary.

The skin of the neck is a common area of concern as people grow older. Time, gravity, and the elements affect the neck more than they do most other areas of the body, causing the skin to droop and sag. Though facelift surgery is an effective treatment for loose, drooping skin on the face, it does little to address similar problems affecting the neck skin. This is why a specific neck lift procedure is so important. Through small incisions behind the ears and beneath the chin, Dr. Chen can lift and tighten the skin of the neck to restore a firmer, more graceful contour that evokes youth and vitality.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Asymmetric, oversized, or strongly projecting ears may be a source of insecurity for both children and adults. Using the latest cosmetic surgery techniques, Dr. Chen can reshape the ears so that they better fit the face and head. Many concerned parents choose this procedure for their children in order to avoid hurtful teasing at school. While children are the most common patients, otoplasty is also a good option for adults who are dissatisfied with their ears.
