Procedures: Skin Surgery
Skin surgery is an office procedure performed for both medically necessary and cosmetic indications to maintain the health, function and appearance of your skin. Skin surgery is used to remove skin cancers (such as Mohs Micrographic surgery), moles, cysts, lipomas, and benign lesions such as skin tags and seborrhea keratoses. Office based surgery can also repair torn or enlarged ear lobe piercings. Skin surgery usually involves injection of local anesthesia prior to the procedure to assure patient comfort.
