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.

Taking Moles (Nevus)

Nevus round structures caused by clusters of cells called melanocytes in the skin. Their sizes vary and can be at the skin level or elevated from the skin. They can be found in any part of our body and sometimes can cause discomfort in the person due to their location or size and elevation. First of all, whether it's benign or malignant is evaluated by a dermatologist with a dermatoscope.

Removing Skin Tumors

A tumor is the general name given to often later-developing masses in our body that can be benign or malignant. The skin, our largest organ, also has benign and malignant tumors, and these can be surgically removed for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes to prevent their spread. Skin appendage tumors, basal cell cancers, and squamous cell cancers are the most common tumors on the skin,

Ingrown Toenails

The nail is one of the most important organs for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Ingrown toenail, frequently seen on our toes, is a condition where the skin surrounding the nail grows into the nail organ, often due to trauma and pressure, causing pain, a sensation of ingrowth, bruising, and inflammation. Ingrown toenail, which is a quite uncomfortable condition, can restrict a person's daily activities and can be complicated by bacterial infections.

Nail Disorders

Functional and cosmetic, one of the most important organs of our body, the nail, can be distorted in both shape and function in many conditions. The matrix region where the nail is produced, the nail bed, and the nail plate are the most common areas where distortions occur. Infections in these areas, various benign and malignant tumors, trauma, medications, and systemic diseases can cause color changes and shape abnormalities in the nails.
