Skin cancer surgery

Queenslanders have the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Dr Campbell-Lloyd works very closely with Dermatologists and GPs to provide the highest level of care for skin cancer patients.

Dr Campbell-Lloyd performs skin cancer excision and complex reconstructive procedures, for all forms of skin cancer including melanoma, Merkel cell tumours and sarcoma.

Skin cancer reconstruction requires precision and experience to ensure optimal scar placement and to avoid obvious contour deformities, wound problems or incomplete removal of skin cancers.

All skin cancer surgery is performed under your health fund’s known GAP scheme**. The GAP for this surgery typically ranges from $200-$500 depending on: the type of skin cancer; where it is; the size of the lesion; and what kind of reconstruction is required. It’s best to check with your heath fund that you are covered for medically necessary plastic surgery including reconstruction after skin cancer excision. Most policies will cover the cost of skin cancer removal. Most funds only cover the cost of reconstruction under ‘top hospital’ policies.

A few common item numbers used for reconstruction after skin cancer surgery include:
45201  |  45451  |  45442  |  45562

**Please note: some health funds do not offer the known GAP scheme. In these cases larger out of pocket fees will be incurred.
