The Australian Sun is one of the harshest rays in the world and long term exposure to ultraviolet light has made skin cancers common among Australians.
Not all skin lesions are skin cancers, and it is important to assess the ABCDE of skin pathology; by looking at the Asymmetry of the lesion, irregular Borders, uneven distribution of Colours, a Diameter of greater than 6 mm and an Evolving lesion with pain, itchiness or bleeding.
Dr Johnny Kwei has over 15 years of surgical experience that allows him to accurately assess skin cancer and treat it with the most appropriate modality.
Some of the common skin cancers that are treated at the practice are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. If required, Dr Kwei will admit you to the hospital for further treatment.
Using the latest techniques in skin grafting and flap reconstruction, Dr Johnny Kwei aims to provide the most aesthetic reconstruction post-surgical treatment, often hiding incision lines in the natural shadows of the body anatomy, giving the best result.
Appointed at Manly District Hospital, Mona Vale Hospital and the new Northern Beaches Hospital, Dr Kwei treats both medicare and private patients in these facilities. He also admits to North Shore Private hospital, Delmar Private Hospital and Crows Nest Day Surgery.
If you have a suspicious lesion, changing in size, pattern, or giving you discomfort, make sure you have it reviewed by a qualified Plastic Surgeon affiliated with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons.
