Gabba Plastic Surgery:
Plastic Surgery at Gabba Dermatology is conducted by plastic surgeons at the same facility through the Gabba Plastic Surgery department. Appointments are made through the one office. Services focus on management of all types of benign and malignant skin cancers including Melanoma. Surgeons accept referrals from Dermatologists within Gabba Dermatology and external General Practitioners and Specialists. In most cases excisions can be done on the day of referral under local anaesthetic, but occasionally may need to be deferred for several reasons e.g. if on blood thinners.
Regrettably, Medical Benefits insurance is not applicable to minor procedures in doctors rooms under local anaesthetic. Gabba Plastic Surgery does not extend its services to patients requiring in-hospital surgery.
