Plastic surgeon or dermatologist?.
Either a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon could help you with your problem. If it becomes more surgical I would recommend a plastic surgeon. Of course, if not a bad thing to go to both dermatologist and a plastic surgeon to make sure the diagnoses agree with one another.
