What to expect if you need dermatologic surgery

If a growth is found on the skin, a biopsy – or removal of part of the growth – may be performed to determine whether or not the growth is benign or malignant. 

Following the biopsy, the doctor will then determine a further course of action. Many benign growths such as actinic keratoses, seborrheic keratoses, and moles may be removed to avoid becoming cancerous in the future. 

Each procedure is tailored to the specific needs of the patient, promoting both therapeutic and cosmetic outcomes.

Most dermatologic surgeries are performed under local anesthesia, ensuring patient comfort and facilitating a quicker recovery.
