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.

Call to schedule an appointment to discuss Mohs cancer surgery with Dr. Eric Cerrati in South Jordan or Salt Lake City. He is a double board certified and fellowship trained reconstructive specialist who can work with your medical team for the best possible reconstructive outcome after cancer surgery.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

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!
