Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. It grows quickly and has the ability to spread to any organ. A sarcoma is a type of tumor that develops in connective tissue, such as bone, cartilage or muscle. Cleveland Clinic Florida Plastic Surgeons are experienced in managing these conditions as well as non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma. We work closely with the Dermatologic and Oncology teams to provide work class care to every patient.

What to Expect
When deciding on cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, it is important to consult with an expert. During your consultation at Cleveland Clinic Florida’s Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center one of our board-certified physicians will meet with you to discuss your goals and expectations as well as the following:
- Review your complete medical history (including past and current medications)
- Discuss any medical conditions that could affect your procedure’s outcomes
- Explain the benefits, risks and timeline for the procedure
- Evaluate the part of your body that would be treated
- Give recommendations
- Answer any questions you may have
You will leave your first visit with a clear idea of the options available to you, as well as any risks involved.
Our plastic surgeons also may collaborate with physicians from other medical and surgical specialties to provide you with the best and most comprehensive care for your aesthetic and reconstructive needs. To schedule a consultation, please call 954.659.5220
