Plastic surgery

Do you notice skin changes that bother or worry you? There are benign and a few malignant skin diseases. We call the removal of skin changes dermatosurgery. Such changes can sometimes be located in functionally challenging areas, for example around the eyes, on the nose or on the mouth. After the removal of such a change, a "defect" is created. Direct closure of the "defect" would not provide an aesthetically pleasing result and/or would impair function. Such cases are treated in collaboration between dermatologists and plastic-aesthetic surgeons.

Removal of skin lesions

In most cases, outpatient treatment under local anaesthetic is possible. Once the skin change has been removed and the type of change has been clarified by means of a histological examination, the focus is on the aesthetic and functional restoration of the affected region. The scars should blend in with the natural facial expression, be as short as possible and as invisible as possible. At the same time, we restore the normal function of areas such as the eyelid, the wings of the nose or the lip as well as possible.

A classic procedure for defect closure is local flap plasty, in which healthy tissue is moved from a localisation of excess skin to the defect area with a skin deficit. With this technique, we avoid scar strands and tension in the scar area. This leads to a more aesthetic result and back to correct function.
