It’s summertime in Chicago and more important than ever to slather on the SPF! According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, 90% of skin cancers are caused by sun exposure, so every precaution must be made when enjoying summertime celebrations.

Although skin cancer is preventable with proper application (and re-application) of sunscreen, 1 in every 5 Americans will still develop skin cancer in their lifetime. In cases such as those involving Melanoma, Basal Cell Carcinoma, and Squamous Cell Carcinoma, dermatologic surgeons often perform a Moh’s surgery that leaves a significant wound; that’s when Chicago plastic surgeon Dr. John Kim is called. An expert in Moh’s skin cancer reconstruction and performing over 200 of these surgeries per year, Dr. Kim works with skin cancer patients to achieve the most natural and least noticeable cosmetic outcomes. To see some amazing results that real patients have had with the help of Dr. Kim, visit the photo gallery!
