Overview

At Epworth, we provide a full range of plastic surgery from the removal of moles and skin grafts, to full face lifts, breast surgery and addressing congenital conditions in children.

Hand surgery:

A large part of the work performed by a plastic surgeon is hand surgery. Surgeons remove skin cancers including performing surgery on squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) and melanoma. Where the defect created by the cancer is large, a skin graft may be required.

Breast surgery:

Breast surgery including reduction, augmentation (enlarging with implants) and reconstruction after mastectomy is available at Epworth. Women who are unhappy with the shape of their breasts can also be treated.

Plastic surgery:

Plastic surgery can also address congenial conditions affecting children, such as extra or webbed fingers and toes, or prominent ears.
