Skin Lesion Removal

Introduction

Most people have skin lesions that develop with age or scars that they don’t like. Most of these can be addressed with relative ease and comfort. The most common types of skin lesions that patients request removed include moles (nevi or nevus), cysts, and skin tags.

Similarly, many patients seek the help of a cosmetic plastic surgeon such as Dr. Pirani with improving the appearance of their scars.

How is a Skin Lesion Removed?

In most cases, moles, cysts, and skin tags can be removed within 15 to 20 minutes under local anaesthesia while you are awake. Most patients find it to be a surprisingly pleasant experience.

After infiltrating the area around your lesion with a local anesthetic (“freezing”), Dr. Pirani will then remove the lesion and send it for analysis by a pathologist to diagnose the lesion. Small sutures are then inserted and a small dressing is applied. Dr. Pirani will follow-up with you regularly to ensure that you are healing well. Dr. Pirani will also institute a specific scar management plan with you to reduce scar visibility.

How Can a Scar be Improved?

Depending on the size, location, and nature of your scar, Dr. Pirani will create a unique scar revision plan to reduce your scar visibility. This may involve non-surgical and surgical techniques or a combination of both.

The Consultation

During your consultation with Dr. Pirani, he will review risks and complications of your customized treatment plan and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery.

Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you fully understand your customized treatment plan.

To schedule a consultation with Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon Dr. Pirani, call 416-360-8772. We look forward to meeting you.
