Surgical Procedures

When you need surgical treatment of skin cancer or unwanted moles or if you need a skin biopsy to diagnose a skin condition, it is important to see a Board Certified Dermatologist. Dr. Obayan is a Board Certified Dermatologist and has received extensive training to surgically treat your skin. She specializes in making your procedure as comfortable as possible and surgical procedures that maximize wound healing and minimize scars. 

Services include:

– Surgical excisions

  • Removal of skin cancers such as Basal Cell Cancer, a slow growing and common skin cancer that occurs mainly on sun exposed skin and looks like a shiny, pearly bump that bleeds or a red spot that won’t go away
  • Treatment of Squamous cell skin cancer, which is also very common in sun-exposed skin and often appears as a rapidly growing bump that is painful or itchy and sometimes scabs over then reappears
  • Surgical removal of melanoma, which can appear as a changing mole, a new darkly colored bump or spot, or a new growth

– Earlobe repair

  • Sometimes trauma can cause splitting or enlarging of your earlobe. Dr. Obayan has great success in repairing torn, split, and stretched earlobes

– Mole removal

  • We all have moles, bumps, and spots that we would like removed. Dr. Obayan specializes in removing these unwanted growths

– Keloid removal

  • Keloids are “scars gone wild,” that grow much larger than they should. Dr. Obayan specializes in treating these scars, which are common if you have brown, tanned-appearing or deeply hued skin. She offers both surgical and non surgical options to treat your scars, and always works with you to formulate a treatment plan¬†

– Biopsies

  • Do you have a mole that is changing or a rash that won’t go away? You might need a biopsy. Dr. Obayan has the experience to perform the procedure to minimize scarring
