Dr. Alghoul, a renowned Amman plastic surgery provider, combines his background and training in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to provide patients with the best possible aesthetic facial reconstruction. Through carefully designed incisions and meticulous execution, he closes cancer-related defects while preserving facial contour and form.
Dr. Alghoul works very closely with his colleague, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Hannah Naasan to provide a comprehensive skin cancer treatment. Full-body skin screening consultation is provided by Dr. Naasan and suspicious skin lesions are biopsied in the office. If the pathology comes back as a cancerous lesion, and depending on the type of cancer, more skin removal can be deemed necessary. This is where Dr. Alghoul becomes involved in the aesthetic closure and reconstruction of the resulting defects. This is all done at the same clinic, under one roof, without the need for referral to another hospital or practice. Additionally, the skin cancer team at Abdali Hospital also include an expert deramtopathologist who specializes in diagnosing and staging various skin cancers.
What to Expect
Small skin cancer defects are treated as an in-office procedure under local anesthesia. Larger defects that require extensive tissue dissection and mobilization are done in the operating room under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Depending on the extent of the injury and the location, a staged approach may be required; in other words, more than one operation may be needed to achieve the desired results. Sutures are usually removed in seven to 10 days. Proper skin care and sun protection are essential during healing and to prevent the occurrence of future cancerous lesions.
