Surgical dermatology is a discipline that conducts studies on the diseases, functions and structure of the skin, as well as its related tissues.
At the Quisisana accredited private hospital it is possible to have access to 10 surgical clinics relating to various specialties, including surgical dermatology (or dermosurgery).
Surgical dermatology aims to remove different elements of the skin. Here are the main ones:
There is the obligation of surgical exeresis in case of malignant and precancerous lesions. The removal of benign lesions takes place for purely aesthetic reasons.
Before undergoing a skin surgery it is necessary to rule out any allergies to specific anesthetics. The specialist must be informed of any ongoing therapies, as well as the presence of any pacemakers and comorbidities. Cardiological analyzes and fasting of at least 2 hours before surgery are required.
The removal of the moles represents the last step of a process that begins with the identification of some alarm bells. Given that a mole needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist, there are some signs that need to be taken into account:
For the main pathologies of the skin tissue, the surgeon gives directions for removal. In the case of moles, the decision is up to the dermatologist.
The operation is carried out on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. The surgeon will have to remove the mole radically. This means resecting a section of skin that includes both the mole and the subcutaneous tissue. Subsequently, the cutaneous section removed is examined histologically, in order to define its characteristics.
Skin biopsy is a diagnostic surgical method of great importance. The process consists in the removal of a skin lesion, integral or partial, under local anesthesia. The goal is to obtain a sample to be subjected to histological examination, in order to reach a histopathological diagnosis.
