Our Surgical Services

Surgical services are critical procedures in dermatology. They provide effective and often permanent results in situations where non-invasive and minimally invasive options are insufficient. At Placer Dermatology, we offer many surgical services in Roseville to treat the dermatological issues of our clients.

Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratoses are dry scaly patches of the skin due to overexposure to sunlight and other sources of UV rays. They are also known as solar keratoses. In general, this skin condition is not serious. However, it is at risk of developing into skin cancer. This health risk necessitates treatment, often through surgical means such as curettage.



Cysts are closed sacs under the skin that contain liquid and other materials. They are usually harmless and painless. However, they can become inflamed and may even get ruptured discharging pus. There are several ways cysts can be treated, including minor surgery.


A lipoma is a fatty tumor that grows between the skin and muscles. Experts claim that lipomas may develop when a person is suffering from obesity, liver disease, or diabetes. They are usually found around the head, neck, shoulders, and back. Non-cancerous lipomas can be removed through surgical excision.

Scar Revision

Scars are among the most common aesthetic issues. They can be developed due to various reasons, including minor injuries, skin conditions, surgeries, burns, or other types of trauma. Scar revision treatments are procedures that reduce the visibility of the scars, making them look more natural. We perform scar revision surgery for effective lasting revision.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is considered the most common form of cancer. There are many types, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. The most effective treatment for skin cancer is surgical removal of the cancerous lesion.

Am I a Good Candidate for Surgical Services?

Surgical services are recommended for patients who cannot get ideal results from non-invasive treatments. Good candidates want effective and long-lasting results. Patients who are at the early stages of their conditions are the best candidates.

Your Consultation

During a consultation, it is important to discuss the details of your skin concerns. This will focus the physical exam and determine the extent of the condition. An evaluation of your medical history will be needed before suitable treatment options will be recommended to you. Each of these options will be explained, and you can choose your preferred treatment.

A treatment plan will be created based on your choice. The plan will be discussed with you, including the preparation, procedure, recovery process, and potential cost. You can raise any doubts or concerns regarding any aspect of the treatment plan. We will make sure to properly address all of them.
