Skin Reconstruction after Melanoma
The reconstruction post-melanoma involves surgery. The surgeon does an excision of the lesion with a margin of safety which varies depending on its thickness (measured during the initial analysis). It is often necessary to perform a skin graft or skin flap following the resumption of the scar of melanoma. After its removal, a microscopic analysis of the tumor ensures that it has been completely removed. The analysis of the sentinel node is used for skin cancer by more than 1 mm thickness, and it is preceded by a lympho-scintigraphy in the morning of surgery.
