How is Dermatofibroma Diagnosed?
What are the treatment options for dermatofibroma?
When you come to Body Surgery by Dr. Tutino for your initial consultation, Dr. Tutino will physically examine your Dermatofibroma and your medical history. Unlike other surgeons, who you only see during the actual procedure, Dr. Tutino is with you from the initial consultation to the final follow-up. Once he has examined your area thoroughly and gone through your medical history with you, he will schedule an appointment for dermatofibroma removal and discuss the expected outcomes. Hence, patients are satisfied with the results. He also makes sure that your procedure is as painless and pleasant as possible.
On the day of the surgery, Dr. Tutino will administer local anesthesia and remove the Dermatofibroma without causing you any pain or discomfort. After the procedure, he will stitch up the area. There might be some scarring, as the dermatofibroma cells could be embedded deep in your skin. Dr. Tutino will take you through the entire aftercare process for your wound and the scar to have a minimum effect. The downtime associated with dermatofibroma removal is minimal. You can quickly go back to your routine life after the procedure. Dr. Tutino might ask you to stay away from strenuous activities for some time. Once he knows that the wound has healed, he can allow you to start your regular exercises or other strenuous activities that you did.
