Skin Cancer Removal in Draper, UT

Skin cancers are common yet concerning conditions affecting patients throughout the Draper, UT area. Howland Plastic Surgery offers the removal of basal cell skin cancer and squamous cell carcinoma lesions. All skin types can be affected by skin cancer. Spending a lot of time in the sun during childhood can increase your chances of developing skin cancer, as can experiencing intense sunburns in your youth. Other risk factors for skin cancer include advanced age, a family history of cancer, a weakened immune system, having fair skin that burns easily, long-term sun exposure, and previously having skin cancer. People with a significant number of moles (more than 50), large moles, or atypical lesions are also more likely to develop the disease. To learn if skin cancer removal is the right treatment option for you, please schedule a visit at our Draper, UT practice today.

The process of skin cancer removal is designed to be as minimally invasive as possible to reduce scarring and support the health of the skin. Whether it's the removal of a raised mole on the face or treating squamous cell carcinoma on the leg, the method often involves precise surgical techniques. Excision starts with the use of a scalpel to make horizontal cuts through the visible lesion and the surrounding tissue to ensure the complete removal of cancerous cells. After excision, the incision is closed with stitches. This step is crucial for the healing process and helps to minimize scarring. The excised skin is then sent to a laboratory for examination. A pathologist will study the tissue to determine if any cancer cells remain. If the lab results show the presence of cancer cells, additional treatment may be required. The goal is to ensure that all affected skin and tissue are entirely removed, eradicating the cancer from the area.

Removing skin cancer is a critical step in protecting an individual's health and well-being in Draper, UT. Beyond the obvious advantage of eliminating cancerous cells, this procedure at Howland Plastic Surgery carries a multitude of benefits to safeguard a patient's overall well-being, including:

  • Prevents the spread of cancer

AMAZING!!! I interviewed 4 Plastic Surgeons before I met with Dr Howland and the minute I met him I knew he was my Surgeon. Best decision I could have made. My body reacted poorly to my Surgery...nothing to do with Dr Howland. His whole Office jumped in. The Nurses are TOP NOTCH...Jenn my girl..Avery who came to the Hospital to assist with a procedure...and everyone else even if not mentioned by name. Melissa at the Front Desk is like a Girlfriend. They have the best formula for choosing a Team. The other Plastic Surgeons that came to help...and called to check up on me. Dr Howland is always available by cell phone. No matter where or what he is doing Despite what happened I LOVE my results..BETTER than I had dreamed...would go back here for anything else, and refer anyone I know here!!! You feel like Family here...not a Patient Thank You to Everyone Lorrie Tomac

Dr Nick Howland was able to give me the trust I need it to go through a rough surgery for my body. I love the results i love the confidence it gave me back, his staff treated me like a queen. His incisions were perfect and you hardly can tell the incisions since it looks like a hair line. very impressive with his skills for sculpting. I totally will recommend him and use him again.
