What we've been up to
Have you seen our awesome free sunscreen dispensers around Traverse City or at your local event?
This summer, Great Lakes Plastic Surgery Center has been placing sunscreen dispensers throughout local parks and events to provide the community with access to free sunscreen, as well as bring awareness to skin cancer prevention. Did you know that on average, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime? However, most of those skin cancers are preventable! Here at GLPSC, we are committed to educating and providing the resources to prevent skin cancer in our community.
Have your skin checked regularly by a GLPSC expert!

To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we will be hosting an open house on November 13th, 2018.
