Skin Cancer (Mohs) Salt Lake City
Along with his expertise in cosmetic facial procedures and surgery, Dr. Thompson also specializes in reconstruction of the face. He manages everything from simple lacerations to complex facial fractures and congenital deformities. But a particularly common problem here in the mountain west is skin cancer. With so many sunny days each year as well as so many opportunities for outdoor enjoyment, it seems that almost everyone has either personal or indirect experience with some form of skin cancer. Reconstruction of facial defects following removal of skin cancers can be a challenging problem, but is something that Dr. Thompson specializes in and greatly enjoys. The pictures on this page are examples of various defects before and following reconstructive procedures. We provide these partly for your education, but also hopefully, as a strong motivator for appropriate skin care and protection.
Mohs Reconstruction is the term used to describe a reconstructive procedure of the face following a Mohs surgery to remove certain types of skin cancer on the face- where skin cancer most commonly occurs. Mohs surgery has an impressively high cure rate and through a Mohs reconstruction, the final esthetic outcome can be greatly improved.
