Chet E. Reistad, M.D.

Ophthalmic Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon

Cancer Reconstruction

Cancers include the most common skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma, as well as squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma and melanoma in-situ. Less common eyelid cancers include sebaceous cell carcinoma and Merkel cell carcinoma.

Mohs surgery is a technique used to remove basal or squamous cell skin cancers from the eyelids, nose, lips and ears. Dr. Reistad often works in close coordination with dermatologists and Mohs surgeons for patients with eyelid skin cancer. Eyelid reconstructive surgery is often required following Mohs surgery.

In order to achieve the best structural, functional and aesthetic result possible, reconstructing the defect left by the removal of the skin cancer is often performed by a reconstructive and oculoplastic surgeon. Dr. Reistad has extensive training in aesthetic wound closures for scar minimization and he specializes in the eyelids, orbit and tear drain system.
