“I found Dr. Albane to be an excellent and very skilled dermatologist. I first went to see her when I noticed a new growth on the side of my nose. Dr. Albane did a biopsy of the growth, which she sent to a pathology lab in France. It was a Basal Skin Carcinoma that was quite deep under the skin. Dr. Albane performed surgery and managed to use the natural creases and contours of my nose for the sutures. The scar is barely noticeable and the pathology lab in France confirmed that all cancerous tissue was removed. I am extremely happy with the results and highly recommend Dr. Albane for her dermatological and surgical skills as well as her high standards of medical professionalism.”
Mohs micrographic surgery is accepted worldwide as the gold standard for removing the two most common forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. This precise surgical technique, whereby thin layers of cancer-containing skin are removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains, boasts the lowest recurrence rate and highest cure rate, and leaves the smallest scar possible. Dr Albane’s team in Paris introduced this surgery to France and the hospital in Paris where she worked remains the referral center for this type of surgery.
“After one month of skin irritation on my face that wouldn’t heal, I decided to consult Dr Albane who saw me very quickly, within a week! After some analysis, she diagnosed it as skin cancer and a few days later did Mohs surgery. One month later, the cancer was gone!” – LB

ALAR (NOSE) REDUCTION
The alar is the area of the nose that extends from the tip and rounds outwardly towards the cheek. Performed under local anaesthesia, this 40-minute procedure makes the nose thinner. A small incision is made on the side of the nostril in order to remove excess tissue. Scars are invisible and the results look natural.
INVERTED NIPPLE CORRECTION
Women born with inverted nipples are often troubled by their appearance and face increased difficulty breastfeeding. Performed in less than 30 minutes, this surgery can help women to achieve a natural-looking nipple shape and appearance.
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are the unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Depending on how they have healed, they may become raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location. Whilst scar revision surgery cannot completely erase a scar, it can make it more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture and provide a more pleasing cosmetic result.
Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a miracle weight loss tool; it is a body contouring procedure that changes your shape by removing unwanted stubborn fat from areas such as the thighs, stomach and love handles.
