Dermal Surgery is the particularly interesting field of surgery to the skin and subcutaneous tissues. While there are other specialities who also undertake this type of work, Plastic Surgeons are uniquely qualified to offer patients the widest range of options and obtain the best results in the solution of their problems.
The field encompasses the treatment of skin cancers, including BCC, SCC and most importantly melanoma as well as other rare tumours of the skin and adnexal structures. Other areas include congenital malformations as well as aesthetic concerns.
