Named Among the Best Plastic Surgeons in Boston
Your child’s care is trusted to the gentle hands of Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan, both of whom are fellowship trained in pediatric plastic surgery and cleft and craniomaxillofacial surgery. Their training and experience in taking care of children is found in few other plastic surgeons in Boston Mass and New England and gives them a comprehensive understanding of the most precious and vulnerable patients.
Cleft Lip or Cleft Palate are narrow openings in the upper lip or the roof of the mouth. Usually addressed in infancy, they result from developing facial structures that do not close completely. The tissues in the lip and palate usually merge in the second and third months of pregnancy. But if that fusion is incomplete, it leaves an opening and creates cleft lip and palate conditions.
Lipoma is a slow growing fatty masses that feels like a soft lump growing under the skin. They may feel smooth and move with pressure. Although described as a tumor, they are usually benign (not cancerous) and can grow slowly larger over time. Rarely, they can be malignant (cancerous) in the form of a liposarcoma.
Releasing the strain of muscles on the face and scalp can also help reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. Patients with frequent migraines causing disruption in school or work schedule can benefit tremendously from Botox treatments when other treatments fail. Improvement with Botox may also be an indication for surgical release.
Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan, Boston Mass area plastic surgeons, frequently treat basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. Other less common skin cancers include metatstatic cancer to the skin, merkel cell carcinoma, and Marjolin's ulcer.
Lipoma is a benign fatty growth that can occur anywhere on the body. Cyst(sebaceous cyst, epidermal inclusion cyst, dermoid cyst, pilar cyst, infundibular cyst) is slow growing sack of skin tissue that can also occur anywhere on the body.
