Whilst the term 'skin surgery' sounds scary, it really encompasses so many procedures that can be conducted in the consulting room simply using a local anaesthetic.

Often it is necessary, for diagnosing and treating, to removal small potions of skin and study its characteristics.  The factors of age, gender, race, and nationality all impact on the characteristics of our skin, as well as our eating habits, exercise routines, and exposure to environmental elements.

At The Westbourne Centre, our skin surgery procedures include punch biopsy, shave biopsy, curettage/cautery, excisions, flap repair, and skin grafts.
