Breast & Skin Reconstruction in Lewiston & Clarkston

Breast reconstruction and skin reconstruction will undoubtedly improve your overall self-image and confidence. Breast reconstruction is typically done after a breast (whole or part) has been removed or when an implant needs removal. Skin reconstruction is usually performed to help correct burns or major scarring, but we also perform skin grafting and skin cancer treatment or removal. Dr. Ozeran can help you overcome any physical imperfections caused by any circumstance.

Breast Reconstruction

One of the primary symbols of womanhood is the breast, especially in western culture where fashion has stressed the value of a shapely figure. Many women who undergo total or partial breast removal as a result of cancer feel the loss of an important part of their feminine self-image. Today, post-mastectomy breast reconstruction can restore the form and appearance of the breast and dramatically improve a woman’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Women who anticipate mastectomy may want to discuss the possibility of having reconstructive surgery performed at the same time. In some cases, it may be necessary to delay the surgery for several months after mastectomy. Dr. Ozeran can determine the most favorable time to perform breast reconstruction surgery. Note that some insurance companies will pay for all or part of this surgery. Each carrier is different, so we recommend that you check with your insurer to determine coverage.

Skin Cancer Treatment

The most common skin cancers are basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma. Dr. Ozeran is highly skilled at tumor removal. While the most important part of skin cancer treatment is complete removal of the tumor, Dr. Ozeran also does an excellent job of restoring the natural appearance of the remaining features. He performs lymph node mapping and sentinel lymph node biopsy in addition to tumor removal. This skin cancer treatment helps identify whether melanoma has spread into the lymph nodes and helps direct further treatment as necessary. Dr. Ozeran is trained in this specialized procedure. He has the skill and expertise for complete skin cancer treatment right here in Lewiston.

Scar Revision

Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture. Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.

Skin Grafts

Skin grafts can be performed after serious injuries when the skin is damaged. We follow surgical removal of damaged skin with skin grafting. Grafting serves two purposes: It reduces the course of treatment needed and improves the function and appearance of the area that receives the skin graft.

Complex Wounds

Dr. Ozeran is often called upon for the treatment of complex wounds such as large pressure ulcers in paraplegic patients, burns, burn scars, radiation injuries and traumatic injuries. Dr. Ozeran usually works with your doctor or general surgeon to determine the optimal treatment plan for you. We can treat many patients without surgery, but if surgery is necessary, Dr. Ozeran has the skills to help you look better right here in Lewiston, Clarkston, Cottonwood, Orofino and Pomeroy.
