Surgical Dermatology

Surgical Dermatology includes both removing lesions that are clinically necessary and those things people simply don’t like. The reason many of our patients bring their families to Bryn Mawr Dermatology is because we are skilled at minimizing the visible signs that a surgery was ever performed.

We understand that remnants of surgery on highly visible areas can affect a person’s confidence. Our highly skilled medical staff is always taking this into account whether we are repairing a laceration on a child’s face or performing a mole or skin tag removal. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology we can perform any of the following surgeries.

Cryosurgery

Liquid nitrogen can be used to treat many skin conditions, avoiding invasive surgical procedures.

Cyst and Lipoma (fatty tumor) Removal

These benign tumors are removed by making a small cut in the overlying skin and removing the growth through the incision.

Ear Lobe Repair

Ear lobe repair includes restructuring of earlobes that get torn or elongated. It is good to employ a specialist for this delicate procedure.

Laceration Repair

Laceration repair includes closure of cuts and puncture wounds that may occur from a variety of incidents such as childhood or household accidents. Our experienced medical staff takes special care to minimize scarring.

Laser Surgery

A variety of lasers can treat a range of skin problems including visible blood vessels, brown spots, scars, birthmarks, and unwanted hair.

Mole Removal

Moles are removed by excising them out with a scooping method or by cutting more deeply into the skin and stitching the wound together.

Skin Cancer Removal

Some types of skin cancers are more superficial than others and can be scraped away from the skin with a special instrument. Other types of skin cancer are best removed by cutting around the edges of the skin cancer and stitching the area together.

Skin Tag Removal

These small flaps of skin are removed through a variety of techniques, all of which are minimally invasive.
