Skin Cancer Surgery

Dr. Ariel Ostad is one of the most recognizable names in dermatologic surgery. He is well known for his attention to detail, artistic eye, and dedication to patient satisfaction. His office in New York is an advanced surgical center, certified by the AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities).


Skin Surgeries

Dr. Ostad offers surgical treatment ranging from minor cosmetic revisions to advanced Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer surgery. Some of the most common skin conditions that are treated surgically include:

Malignant Melanoma  

This is the deadliest skin cancer, claiming one life every hour in the United States. Due to its aggressive nature, it is best treated with Mohs surgery, which has a higher cure rate than alternative techniques. Dr. Ostad is one of New York’s premier Mohs surgeons, and a fellow of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery.

Scar Revision

A scar is the mark left by healing skin. Technically, removing a scar is not possible, because the procedure will leave its own mark. However, most scars can be revised to make them less noticeable. Dr. Ostad uses precise, carefully located incisions, for minimal, well-disguised scars, often making the scar seem to disappear.

Benign Lipoma

This is a harmless skin condition, characterized by fatty deposits under the skin that cause lumps. Removal is generally not medically necessary, but many patients choose to have them treated for aesthetic or comfort reasons.

Unsightly Benign Mole

Any suspicious mole should be examined for potential skin cancer. If it is benign, removal is not necessary. However, moles located in highly visible areas can be a cosmetic concern. Removal is a fast and straightforward procedure.
