Statistics show that 20% of Americans will likely develop skin cancer at some time in their lives, and 80% of those will have cancer affect their head, face or neck. Not all cancers require Mohs surgery, but due to the delicate nature of the face, a Mohs procedure will likely provide the best outcome. This is especially true if the patient’s cancer is located on the face and is highly aggressive or produces large tumors.

Mohs surgery is a specific technique where a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon removes layers of skin, examining each layer for the presence of cancer cells. This reconstructive procedure is repeated until only cancer-free cells remain. Then, precise cosmetic techniques are used, including skin grafts when necessary, to reconstruct the area previously affected by cancer. Incisions are generally hidden when possible in the natural lines and contours of the face and neck.

Why Should You Consider Mohs Surgery?

Mohs cancer removal and reconstructive surgery offer a far more advanced treatment modality than earlier cancer surgeries. Before Mohs, the visible cancer and a large portion around it was cut away all at once, and only later testing revealed if the surgery succeeded or failed. In a Mohs procedure, care is taken to remove only the cancerous tissue. Each layer is tested immediately after removal to ensure the procedure is successful.

Far less cosmetic trauma results from a Mohs surgery, which a skilled facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon can then repair. Depending on the size of the area to be removed, more than one reconstructive procedure may be necessary. Dr. Cerrati can explain more about the surgical process and work with you to build a personal treatment plan during a consultation at his offices.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!

Dr. Cerrati is AMAZING at what he does! He is very professional, personable, and always makes sure you are comfortable during your procedures. After seeing 3 other physicians and having procedures done to help open my nasal passages, Dr. Cerrati came up with a different solution that actually worked. He is very meticulous and precise with all of his work and my facial injections were nearly painless. He does great work, I highly recommend!

Dr. Cerrati, Nani and the entire staff made my day today! I put my wallet on the hood of my car and drove off with it there on my way to my appointment this morning. By the time I realized what I had done my wallet was long gone. I ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment (which I absolutely hate) and the staff was nothing but understanding and so so nice when I told them what happened. It was my first experience in the office but absolutely not my last! Not only am I impressed with the way I was treated but they did an amazing job!! My appointment was short and sweet with a job well done and I couldn't help but leave with happy tears in my eyes. Kind people are the best!!!
