Skin Conditions

When a dermatological condition presents itself the safest method of treatment may involve the removal of skin for diagnosis and analysis, to remove an affected area and encourage healing or grafting of skin to facilitate natural dermal repair.

Whilst the term 'skin surgery' sounds scary, it really encompasses so many procedures that can be conducted in the consulting room simply using a local anaesthetic.

Often it is necessary, for diagnosing and treating, to removal small potions of skin and study its characteristics. The factors of age, gender, race, and nationality all impact on the characteristics of our skin, as well as our eating habits, exercise routines, and exposure to environmental elements.

At The Westbourne Centre, our skin surgery procedures include punch biopsy, shave biopsy, curettage/cautery, excisions, flap repair, and skin grafts.
