At Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Show Low, AZ, we understand the importance of providing a wide range of solutions for patients who are looking for both medical and cosmetic treatments. Our facility also provides the excision, or removal, or benign skin lesions.
What is a benign skin lesion?
When patients hear of a skin lesion, they might be worried that they have skin cancer. However, there are many different types of growths that can develop on the skin that are not cancerous, including benign skin lesions. These may be lumps, skin tags, or other lesions that might be highly visible and make patients feel self-conscious. In situations such as this, a provider at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery will provide removal with excision.
If done correctly, most benign skin lesion excisions will not result in scarring or disfigurement. At our practice, our providers are skilled and trained in providing proper removal of these benign skin lesions for new and established patients. We want to ensure that the final result is aesthetic and reduces the result of scarring whenever possible.
What ways are benign skin lesions handled?
There are many different ways of removing skin lesions and tags from the body. For some, simple skin tag removal may be required. Benign lesions can also be shaved down to remove them, or excised fully with a more surgical technique. Patients with warts may also find that they can freeze them off, which can reduce the risk of spreading. We encourage patients with skin lesions of concern to call Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to discuss the best method of removal available at our facility. Our team can make recommendations based on the lesion itself, its location, and one’s health insurance coverage.
