The procedures performed in the treatment of skin tumors are excision surgeries, that is, procedures that remove the lesion using a cut around the affected area. This procedure can be applied to both benign and malignant lesions.

In the case of malignant lesions, in addition to the lesion, a safety margin around it is also removed. Depending on the size of the lesion, scarring and even disfigurement of the area may occur, which leads to the need for restorative surgeries like grafting or flap placement.

Factors such as size and location of the lesion and the general health of the patient are taken into account in the process of choosing which surgical technique will be performed.

Plastic surgeon Guilherme Graziosi M.D. informs that only a plastic surgeon and a dermatologist can advise on the best procedure to repair injuries and post-excision scars.
