Dermatology surgery covers the diagnosis and treatment of cosmetic and medical conditions of the skin, nails, hair and veins by different cosmetic, surgical, non-surgical and reconstructive techniques. It is done by all dermatologists and it is a part of dermatology residency training. Therefore all dermatologists are highly trained to perform it.

Dermatologic surgeons are board-certified physicians focusing on keeping the skin healthy and beautiful. Most dermatologic surgeons perform cosmetic and medical procedures to keep the appearance and function of the skin in good condition. 

Dermatology surgery is done to improve or repair the function and aesthetic appearance of the skin.

Because of advanced research and innovations in instruments and technology, most dermatology surgeries are minimally or non-invasive and require only local anesthesia or topical numbing cream. This greatly increases patient safety and significantly reduces downtime or recovery period. Also, the side effects are only minimal and temporary. New developments and groundbreaking methods enhance the outcomes of established skin surgery treatments even further.

Some of the techniques used by dermatologic surgeons are scalpel surgery, lasers, electrosurgery, photodynamic therapy and different injectable agents.
