Dermatologic Surgery

What is dermatologic surgery?

Dermatologic surgery is a specialized area of dermatology focused on surgical procedures and minimally invasive treatments to improve the health, function, and appearance of your skin.

Dermatologic surgery specifically deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary and cosmetic conditions that affect the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes, and adjacent tissue.

Treatment may include surgical intervention, reconstruction, cosmetic treatments, or nonsurgical methods. 

Who performs dermatologic surgery?

Dermatology Consultants P.A. includes a team of skilled board-certified dermatologists who specialize in skin surgery. The primary focus of the dermatologic surgeon is the health and beauty of your skin from head to toe. 

The dermatologic surgeons perform both medically necessary and cosmetic surgical procedures to maintain or improve the health and function of your skin. 

What conditions can be treated with dermatologic surgery?

Dermatologic surgeons are pioneers in the research and development of many of today’s most effective therapeutic and cosmetic skin care solutions. 

Some of the conditions that benefit from dermatologic surgery include:

  • Skin cancer
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Unwanted hair
  • Varicose veins
  • Undesirable fat
  • Aging and sun-damaged skin
  • Scars
  • Hair loss

The skilled dermatology surgeons at Dermatology Consultants P.A. specialize in removal of skin cancer lesions and include surgeons trained to perform Mohs surgery.

With Mohs surgery, your surgeon removes and examines thin layers of skin until all the cancerous tissue is taken, leaving your healthy surrounding skin intact. It’s the preferred surgical technique for the treatment of skin cancer that affects the face because it causes minimal scarring.
