Addressing Your Skin Cancer

Our experienced Consultant Plastic Surgeons have spent years treating skin cancers in the NHS and privately. We are able to see, diagnose and remove lesions, which will then be sent to the lab for analysis. This gives us the ability to inform you of the outcome and our findings, so we can then begin planning the next stages of your care. Typically, we aim to see and treat patients within two weeks, but this can be accomplished sooner if you are feeling particularly anxious.

Here at Elanic, we focus on a patient-centric approach that flies above and beyond many of our peers. Our staff is comprised of a number of highly qualified, talented surgeons, and we’ll work closely with you to chart a course away from your illness and back to your fullest quality of life. When you’re ready to learn more about how we can help you say goodbye to skin cancer, a member of our team is ready to help. Simply reach out to us at our Glasgow call centre, and set up your consultation at the Elanic location that’s most convenient for you.

When to Consider Skin Cancer Treatment

In the vast majority of cases, skin cancer is caused by overexposure to the sun’s UV rays. When your skin’s cells are exposed to too much of this type of energy, it can cause abnormal cellular growth, which is the basis for skin cancer. Your skin cells grow and divide at an unhealthy rate, and the problem can spread to other parts of the body, as well.

The good news is that skin cancer can be addressed very effectively if it’s caught early on and not allowed to progress. If left untreated, however, it can become quite a serious issue and may lead to further complications that can potentially even be life-threatening. At Elanic, we have a team of skilled surgeons who can assess your issue and develop a treatment plan that enables you to say goodbye to skin cancer for good.

Skin Cancer Treatment and Reconstruction

For most patients, treating skin cancer involves a two-pronged approach: First, the cancer must be carefully and precisely removed from the treatment area, before the area is then reconstructed.

Skin Cancer Excision

When skin cancer is brought to our attention early on, excision is a very simple and straightforward procedure that utilizes a topical anaesthetic. Cancerous cells can be removed without impacting the deeper layers of your skin, so you won’t have to deal with any kind of extensive recovery period.


Once the cancer has been removed, you will likely need reconstructive attention, to fully restore your appearance. When cancer removal leaves behind a divot or indentation in the treatment area, various methods can be used to rebuild the area, so you can enjoy your fullest sense of self-confidence.
