Surgical Dermatology

surgical-dermatology

Surgical Dermatology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medical and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, and adjacent tissues by various surgical or reconstructive methods. The purpose of surgical dermatology is to repair and improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue.

Thanks to research breakthroughs, the majority of dermatologic surgeries are now minimally invasive and require only local or regional anesthesia. This translates into superior patient safety while reducing the recovery period. In addition, new developments and the latest techniques are constantly enhancing the results of many established skin surgery procedures.

Examples of surgical dermatology procedures include anti-aging treatments, injectable and implantable soft tissue fillers, Botox treatments, correction of acne scarring, chemical peeling, vein therapy, laser surgery, skin cancer treatment and reconstructive grafts.
