Surgical Dermatology Q & A

What is surgical dermatology?

Surgical dermatology is a specialized area of dermatology that performs procedures to treat dermatological issues. 

All dermatologists undergo basic dermatology training to diagnose and treat conditions that affect the skin, hair, or nails. Surgical dermatologists have additional training to treat these conditions with surgical interventions.

Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center has dermatologists specializing in surgical dermatology, providing all the care required to address your skin concerns.

What does surgical dermatology treat?

Surgical dermatology is the primary treatment for skin cancer. Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center specializes in skin cancer detection and treatment. There are many surgical techniques for removing skin cancer.

However, Mohs surgery is one of the most effective procedures for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center performs Mohs surgery at their state-of-the-art surgical center at the office.

During this procedure, the dermatologist removes the cancerous lesion one layer at a time until they reach the layer of skin that’s cancer-free. This procedure preserves the healthy surrounding skin and reduces your risk of the skin cancer recurring. 

Surgical dermatology also treats melanoma, cysts, and unwanted moles using surgical interventions. Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center may also perform surgery for scar revision. 

Is cosmetic dermatology the same as surgical dermatology?

Cosmetic dermatology and surgical dermatology aren’t the same. However, surgical dermatologists can perform cosmetic procedures such as injections, laser treatments, and chemical peels.

Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center offers many cosmetic services to address skin and beauty concerns. 

Am I a candidate for surgical dermatology?

Schedule a consultation at Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center to see if you’re a candidate for surgical dermatology. The dermatologists take a patient-centered approach to care, asking detailed questions about your concerns and goals.

They examine your skin and determine the best treatment. They may recommend surgical dermatology to treat suspicious skin growths and confirm or rule out cancer.

They can also talk to you about surgical treatments for a bothersome cyst, mole, or scar.
