Dermatologic surgery deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medical and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes and adjacent tissues by various surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods. The purpose of dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue.
The majority of dermatologic surgeries are minimally invasive and require only local or regional anaesthesia, which improves patient safety while reducing the “downtime” and recovery period.
