Facial Skin Cancer

Hawthorne Clinic uses state-of the-art technology. The area of concern is first biopsied to determine if it is in fact a cancer. If the biopsy is not cancerous, no further treatment is generally required. If the biopsy is cancerous, most are then removed using the MOHS technique because this method has the highest cure rate and preserves the most normal tissue around the eyelids and face.

The major added value of Hawthorne Clinic Oculofacial plastics group begins after the cancer is removed. It is paramount that our patients not only obtain a cure of the cancer but also achieve the best possible post reconstruction function and facial appearance. Our doctors have extensive experience in performing reconstructive surgery and understand how to protect the delicate structures of the face and maximize facial appearances.
