LOS ANGELES | A representative for Melanie Griffith says the actress has had surgery to remove early stages of skin cancer from her face.

Spokeswoman Robin Baum said Thursday that the procedure was done early enough to prevent further complications.

The 52-year-old Oscar nominee (for 1988’s “Working Girl”) was left with a black eye after the surgery.

The actress has a 12-year-old daughter with her husband, actor Antonio Banderas. Miss Griffith — who was once married to actor Don Johnson — also has an adult son and daughter from previous relationships.

She is set to appear on an episode of TV’s “Nip/Tuck” next year.
