Surgical Treatment

Cysts are sacs that form in the skin or anywhere in the body. They’re filled with fluid, air, or other material.

There are many different types of cysts. Causes include such as blockages in ducts, swollen hair follicles or infection. These are typically harmless and don’t always require treatment.

It can be removed by various methods like drainage where small incision is made and fluid is removed Or fine needle aspiration where a thin needle is inserted into a cyst to drain the fluid. Or last it can be done with surgery.

It is generally done by two methods: follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) or follicular unit extraction (FUE).

With FUSS, the surgeon removes a 6- to 10-inch strip of skin from the back of your head. He sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it. Next, the strip of removed scalp is divided into 500 to 2,000 tiny grafts, and graft are transplanted to the site.

With FUE procedure, the surgeon will shave your scalp. Then, he will remove hair follicles one by one from there. The area heals with small dots, which your existing hair will cover. Then he prepares the grafts and numbs the area where the hair will be transplanted, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately place each graft.

Biopsy is generally taken to find out the abnormalities in the skin tissue that may be tumour, mass or lesion. Where small parts of tissue are extracted by biopsy punch and send to the laboratory.

Skin Biopsy is diagnostic procedure done to confirm clinical diagnoses.

A small part of the skin tissue is taken by Biopsy punch or excision and send laboratory for examination by the pathology.

Laser helps stimulate new, healthy skin growth. Although it cannot completely remove scars, it can make them less noticeable. Fractional CO2 lasers excel at treating deeper wrinkles, more severe textural changes from sun damage, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch mark and surgical or traumatic scars. It can even be used on the delicate eyelid skin and around the mouth.

By means of light and heat the scar cells are damaged and it is replaced with new skin. The deeper the treatment, the better the results we get. You will see some immediate results as change in your skin texture but you won’t see the full results for 3-6 months. You must avoid your social engaging as your face skin will not be normal if you are planning for acne scar on face.

A scar that grows beyond the boundaries of the original wound is called a keloid scar whereas a scar that is raised above the skin level but grows within the boundaries of the original wound is known as a hypertrophic scar. Both scars can be treated with treatments such as Surgical excision Cryotherapy, Compression therapy, Radiation therapy, Occlusive Dressings, Intralesional corticosteroid injections.

Vitiligo is a chronic skin disorder that causes areas of skin to lose colour. It presents as depigmented (white) patches. Exposed body sites, such as the face, elbows, knees, hands and feet, are often involved, resulting in significant cosmetic concerns.

It is usually treated with creams and tablets, or by phototherapy. Surgery is advised to the patients with stable vitiligo, not responding to medical treatment or causing severe psychosocial distress. The choice of surgical treatment depends on the extent of vitiligo, the sites involved, the availability of equipment, and the expertise of the surgeon.

Earlobe surgery or earlobe reduction also called a “lobe lift”. It tightens and repairs damaged earlobes that have been stretched, ripped, or scarred or sagged due to aging or because of use of heavy earrings.

During a surgery, a surgeon reshapes and fixes any irregularities or tears in the earlobe tissue, including any lumps or scars that have formed around the piercing. It will phenolise and stitched to completely fill the gap. Dressing is be done every 5 days and after healing stitches will be removed by surgeon. You must not pierce again until your dermatologist says so. It requires healing time of about 3-4months to get perfect result.
