Skin Surgery

Skin surgery is the field of dermatology that deals in the removal of benign and malignant lesions.

Benign lesions such as naevi, cysts, lipomas and cancers like melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are removed with the scalpel and then sutured.

For closure, various types of stitches (absorbable and non absorbable) of different diameters depending on the case are used to achieve optimal wound healing.

Dermoscopy of the lesions prior to any surgery guides us to the type of surgery to proceed which may be laser, surgery, or cryotherapy.
