Principle of intervention

A dermatosurgical procedure consists in remove a cutaneous or subcutaneous lesion. In the case of a malignant lesion (malignant melanoma for example), a safety margin is achieved. That is to say that the surgeon cutting wide, it removes the lesion as well as a portion of surrounding healthy skin to avoid leaving tumor residues that could cause recurrence.

After removing the lesion, the surgeon makes a simple suture to close the wound. Sometimes a Lambeau cutaneous must be grafted to cover the wound left after extensive excision (bulky lesion).

The removed lesion will be systematically sent to the laboratory for review histological so as never to miss out on a malignant pathology.

“A center of excellence”

My approach is initially to listen to patients in order to determine if their expectations are realistic and achievable and if the risk-benefit ratio is in favor of an intervention.

Doctor Maxence Thomas performed breast reduction surgery on me in May. I am delighted with the result. Doctor Thomas is very available and very friendly. I felt confident right away and would highly recommend it.
