Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify complications in dermatologic surgery, laser, and cosmetic procedures.
  • Develop an approach to minimize and prevent surgical complications.
  • Design a strategy to manage surgical complications should they arise

Surgical complications are unavoidable, even in the most experienced hands. Physicians who perform cutaneous surgery should engage in practices that seek to prevent such complications from arising. However, dermatologic surgeons must be prepared to recognize and treat surgical complications in the event that they arise. Having a strategy to minimize the risk of suboptimal results stemming from complications is key. Experienced cutaneous surgeons will discuss the prevention, diagnosis, and management of complications that may occur when performing dermatologic surgery, laser surgery, and cosmetic procedures.
