Unwanted marks such as moles, growths, cysts and scars can be surgically removed to improve the appearance of your skin.
It is best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for the cosmetic removal of unwanted skin lesions because plastic surgeons have extra specialty training to minimize the final scar.
The best looking, barely there scar is usually obtained by removing the lesion with a scalpel blade, then stitching the wound together using cosmetic plastic surgery suturing techniques.
It is important to note that every patient heals differently. Your genetics, incision line location and following your aftercare instructions are some determining factors in the success of your surgery. Dr. Lyons will discuss your options in detail at the time of your initial consultation.
At the time of your initial consultation you will sit down with Dr. Lyons to discuss why you are interested in surgery and the changes that you would like to see. The details of your surgery will be explained thoroughly.
Dr. Lyons will take the time to listen, and all of your questions will be answered before you leave.
Incision lines for mole, growth and scar removal are strategically placed in the natural lines and folds in your skin according to the location of your lesion. Dr. Lyons will determine which incision option is best for your procedure based on your existing anatomy.
Skin lesion removal is typically accomplished under a local anesthetic and can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
You may not need any downtime after your surgery. Some patients return to work on the same day as their procedure. Dr. Lyons will let you know what to expect and you will be given very detailed post operative care instructions to follow during your recovery.
Mole, scar and cysts removal can be combined with other surgical procedures. If you are interested in combining your lesion removal with another procedure, please let us know when you call to reserve your consultation.
