Aussie star’s shocking surgery aftermath
Australian media personality Deborah Hutton has revealed the brutal aftermath of surgeries to remove two skin cancers from her face.
The glamorous TV presenter and former model told her Instagram followers she'd "ummed and aahed" about publicly sharing the facial scarring from her cancer surgery.
"But after having the stitches out from another major surgery to remove 2 skin cancers, and being extreme (sic) grateful they've got it all, I feel it's only right to remind you to get your SKIN CHECKED!" she wrote.
Hutton explained that prior to surgery, the skin cancer on her face, which had been flagged as suspicious by her dermatologist months before surgery, was not even visible to the naked eye.

I have ummed and aahed about posting this but after having the stitches out from another major surgery to remove 2 skin cancers, and being extreme grateful they’ve got it all, I feel it’s only right to remind you to get your SKIN CHECKED! Please 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 Early detection is everything!! Don’t delay. To look at the area around my nose prior to surgery, nothing was visible to the naked eye. Only my dermatologist flagged it months earlier... So don’t stuff around with your health! My skin will heal and in the coming months you’ll hardly see the scar. I’ve been here before 9 years ago. Skin heals beautifully but only if you give it the chance before it’s too late. Extremely grateful to my surgeon and the nurses who looked after me 🙏🏼💙 huge thanks 🙏🏼 💙 #skincancerawareness #skincancer #skincancerprevention @chris_obrien_lifehouse
