Cosmetic dermatologists recommend surgical repairs when skin has been torn due to trauma or injury.
Earlobe repair is a common type of surgical skin repair that can close earlobe tears and stretching.
Surgical repair may also be done after removing lesions or cysts from the skin. Skin repair can be done with general or local anesthetic, depending on how in-depth of a procedure is required.
Surgical repairs can improve the appearance of the skin significantly, especially because dermatologists make every effort to do so with minimal incisions, in the least invasive way possible. Your dermatologist will alert you to any risks associated with the surgical repairs you need, and will let you know how to prepare for your procedure.
There is no need to live with unpleasant or painful skin tears. If you need surgical skin repairs, call our caring cosmetic dermatologists today.
