Is there surgery to prevent oily, acne prone skin?

Not really: One option that can help is a more agressive prescription-strength skin care regimen. You can get recommendations from a local cosmetic dermotologist for a specific line. Another option is "microbotox." this involves injecting the skin with very small amounts of Botox in the area affected, spacing the injections about 1cm apart. The Botox targets the muscle of certain glands and can help.
