All procedures in our dermatosurgery unit are performed under local anesthesia. The lesion is marked, and the area is first anesthetized locally, then it is cut with a scalpel and removed. Subsequently, it is sutured with suitable suture material. Stitches on the face and neck are removed in 5-7 days, on the body and arms in 2 weeks, and on the legs in 14-21 days. There is usually no need for the patient to stop using blood thinners. You should come on an empty stomach for the excision.
Dermatosurgical procedures are performed on our patients in the forms of excisional biopsy, punch biopsy, shave excision, and nail surgery.
Suspicious lesions with potential cancer, rapidly growing, changing in shape and color, or bleeding moles are removed using appropriate methods.
In skin cancers, a preliminary biopsy is first performed using the punch biopsy method to make a diagnosis, and then it is completely removed.
Cysts are also removed surgically along with their sacs.
For ingrown nails, the ingrown part is completely removed using the chemical matrixectomy method, followed by the application of potassium hydroxide or phenol to prevent recurrence.
Biopsies are taken to diagnose existing conditions in the nails, and masses or cysts appearing in the nails are also removed using appropriate methods.
