Skin Surgeries

SkinCare in Wellesley, MA

Skin surgeries may sound like a cause for concern, but most are relatively simple and painless, especially when performed by an expert dermatologist like Dr. Goodkin.

Skin Cancer

There are several types of skin cancer, which often require a simple surgery to remove. Skin cancer surgery can be completed through excision or cryotherapy.


An excision is a procedure in which a dermatologist removes a small amount of skin, sometimes for biopsy purposes.

Mole Removal

Moles can be removed by Dr. Goodkin for medical or cosmetic purposes.

Cyst Removal

Cysts can be removed through excisions, drainage with a needle, or other techniques.

Precancerous Moles

A precancerous mole must be removed by a qualified dermatologist such as Dr. Goodkin.
