Welcome to the melanoma skin cancer page of Dr. Bulent Yaprak, a renowned plastic surgeon located in Waikato.

Melanoma often appears as a new or changing mole on the skin, but can also develop from an existing mole. It is important to monitor your skin regularly and seek evaluation by a qualified plastic surgeon if you notice any changes or new moles that concern you.

Dr. Yaprak is experienced in diagnosing and treating melanoma, using the latest techniques and technologies to ensure that all cancerous tissue is removed and surrounding healthy tissue is preserved. He works closely with each patient to develop a tailored treatment plan, taking into consideration the size, location, and type of melanoma, as well as each patient’s individual needs and goals.

In some cases, melanoma may be treated with surgical excision, where the cancerous tissue is removed along with a margin of surrounding healthy tissue. In other cases, a wider excision or lymph node dissection may be necessary to ensure that all cancerous tissue is removed. Dr. Yaprak is highly skilled in performing these procedures with the utmost care and precision, using the latest techniques to minimize scarring and ensure the best possible outcome for each patient.

After melanoma removal, Dr. Yaprak will closely monitor each patient’s progress, providing ongoing care and support throughout the recovery process.
