About Dermatologic Surgery

Dermatologic surgeons are surgeons who specialize in surgery of the skin.

A dermatologic surgeon demonstrates competence in the diagnosis, medical care, and surgical management of the following:

Diseases and disorders of the skin, hair, nails, veins, and nearby tissues
Benign and malignant growths and skin cancers
Aging and sun-damaged skin
Cosmetic improvement of the skin

Techniques available to a dermatologic surgeon include lasers, traditional scalpel surgery, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, photodynamic therapy, liposuction, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), minimally-invasive facelift surgery (e.g., the S-lift), and a variety of topical and injectable agents such as dermal fillers including fat transfer and hyaluronic acid. The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery is the largest organization representing dermatologic surgeons in the United States. (See current ASDS President Mitchel P. Goldman).

Some specially trained surgeons perform Mohs cancer surgery, which can be an effective method for the treatment of recurrent, indistinct, or difficult skin cancers.
