Surgical Dermatology Q & A

What is surgical dermatology?

Surgical dermatology refers to any procedure that involves the use of anesthesia or tools that cut into the skin. With a state-of-the-art facility, Dr. Rudnick performs a wide range of surgical procedures on-site at Dazzling Dermatology. 

Whether you have a medical skin condition or cosmetic concern, Dr. Rudnick can recommend the best surgical treatment for you.

What conditions can surgical dermatology treat?

Dr. Rudnick uses surgical dermatology to treat many skin, hair, and nail disorders, including:

Warts

Warts are noncancerous growths that can appear nearly anywhere on the body. They commonly develop on the hands, elbows, knees, and soles of the feet. Warts aren’t dangerous, but they can be an uncomfortable cosmetic concern.

Scars

Scars are fibrous areas of tissue that form during the body’s healing process. Many scars develop after an injury or surgery, while others form from acne.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer is a rapid and abnormal growth of cells in the skin’s top layer, the epidermis. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are the two types of skin cancer that dermatologists treat more often. Melanoma is a more aggressive type that can penetrate deep within your dermal layers and spread to other areas of your body.

Birthmarks

Birthmarks are skin abnormalities that typically appear at birth or soon after. Birthmarks may be pigmented, resembling a mole, or vascular, like port wine stains and hemangiomas.

Moles

Moles are pigmented skin growths that can develop anywhere on the skin. While most moles are benign (noncancerous), they can turn malignant (cancerous).

Hair loss

Hair loss causes your hair to fall out in patches. Hormonal, chemical, and environmental factors can cause hair loss in people of all ages. Some forms of hair loss are also genetic.

What are the different procedures in surgical dermatology?

Some of the most common types of surgical procedures that Dr. Rudnick performs at Dazzling Dermatology include:

  • Skin biopsy
  • Cryosurgery 
  • Shave removal
  • Electrodessication and curettage
  • Conservative excision
