The Different Dermatology Surgery Procedures

Curettage & Cautery

This is a form of electrosurgery used to treat skin lesions. With this procedure, a skin lesion is scraped off and there is then the application of heat to your skin’s surface. There are a number of different skin lesions that can be resolved with curettage. This is suitable for lesions whereby the material that the dermatologist is going to scrape off is softer than the skin that surrounds it or where there is a natural cleavage plan between the lesion and the normal tissue that surrounds it.

Skin Biopsies

A skin biopsy will remove skin or cell samples from the surface of your body. The sample that is taken will be assessed so that you can be provided with information about your medical condition. This can be used to either rule out or diagnose specific skin diseases and conditions. There are a number of different types of skin biopsies.

Surgical Mole Excision

A surgical mole excision will cut the mole out, cutting right down to the subcutaneous fat to ensure the lesion is fully removed. With bigger moles that are more than 8mm in diameter, to ensure a seamless closure the excision might be extended into a shape that is more elliptical. This can be used to address concerns such as birthmark removal and mole removal.

There is no extensive preparation that is going to be required before this treatment. However, you are advised to avoid sun exposure and wear SPF daily. During the procedure, local anesthetic will be applied to numb the area so that you do not feel any sort of pain. Once the area has been numbed and thoroughly cleansed, the unwanted growth is going to be removed. As mentioned, this is right down to the subcutaneous fat. Sutures will be used to close the incision, and a protective bandage will cover the area.
