Dermatologic Surgery in Vienna by Dermatologist Vienna

Surgery can be performed under topical (local) or general anaesthesia. For the latter, certain preparation is needed which will be explained at the initial visit. Small lesions such as moles under the size of 5mm can be also removed superficially as well (e.g. shave biopsy). In this case, the wound heals like a scrape and does not need to be stitched.

Common surgical procedures

  • removal of moles
  • excision or histological confirmation of cancerous lesions or other skin diseases
  • treatment of ingrown nails
  • excision of cysts, abscesses etc.
  • seborrhoic warts („age spots“), condylomas and mollusca

Please note

  • cosmetic appearance after surgery depends very much on the healing process after surgery
  • the wound should be kept dry, physical stress and UV (e.g. sun) should be avoided
  • besides scaring, the color (pigmentation) of the surrounding tissue might change
  • therefore the seasons before and after summer, typically between October and April is recommended
