In addition to his private practice, Dr. Zimmet and his team also participate in various local philanthropic efforts including their latest: providing complimentary radiation tattoo removal for breast cancer patients.
Complimentary Removal of Radiation Tattoos
Dr. Zimmet has entered into a partnership with Susan G. Komen® Austin and Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) to address a specific aesthetic need for those who have been treated for breast cancer: the removal of radiation tattoo markers.
Many who have had breast cancer are left with permanent tattoo markers on their skin post radiation treatment. For suitable candidates bothered by their presence, removal by an experienced dermatologist is an option. Dr. Zimmet and his team are providing complimentary removal of radiation tattoos for those who have been through this treatment and have clearance from their oncologist to have the marks removed.
What are Radiation Tattoos?
Radiation therapy may involve the use of tattoos, applied by the radiation therapist, to precisely mark and target the area to be treated. These tattoos are usually about one to two millimeters in size and are permanent.
