Most dermatologists are expert surgeons. In fact, dermatologists perform more surgical procedures than any other specialty. A normal day at Benson Dermatology involves the removal of several skin cancers, a number of benign growths such as cysts and moles, and countless precancerous and viral growths. All are done under local anesthesia using refined plastic surgery techniques to insure the best possible cosmetic result.
Even some medical conditions that are disfiguring can be remedied, such as rhinophyma. Rhinophyma is a common condition which greatly thickens the nasal skin reminiscent of the nose of W.C. Fields. In this patient, a forty-five minute procedure erased decades of disfigurement.
Likewise, unsightly moles as well as skin tags of all sizes are often removed in seconds, and dangerous skin cancers are completely eradicated with microscopic verification. The skin is then repaired to leave minimal or no residual scarring.
