About Lesion Removal

There are various types of lesions, including warts, skin tags, keratosis, and moles. Skin lesions can be raised and create a bump or can lie beneath the skin's surface and cause a dark spot. While skin lesions are typically not a cause for concern, patients often choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or to avoid potential health risks, such as skin irritation or cancer. At Bloomfield Plastic Surgery in West Bloomfield, MI, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa provides lesion removal. A variety of techniques can be used for lesion removal, including laser, excision, and shaving. During your consultation, Dr. Sosa will examine the condition of your skin to decide which technique best fits your situation.

Ideal Candidates

Lesion removal is ideal for men and women who have one or more moles, warts, skin tags, or keratoses. It can be performed for cosmetic and medical reasons. The best candidates typically meet the following criteria:

  • Are suffering from chronic skin irritation
  • Desire the removal of one or more skin lesions
  • Are embarrassed by their lesions
  • Are concerned that their lesions could pose health risks
  • Have a skin lesion in a prominent area on the body, such as the chin, cheeks, hands, or nose

Procedure Technique

Lesion removal is a simple procedure performed with a local anesthetic in our minor procedure room. The method used will be dependent on the location, depth, and size of the lesion. Some lesions can be easily removed with a simple shaving technique or laser treatment, but others may require excision. The method that is most ideal for your skin condition will be discussed during your initial consult. Regardless of the approach, Dr. Sosa will do his best to leave minimal scarring.

What to Expect

After your lesion removal, the treatment area may feel sensitive and uncomfortable. These symptoms usually begin to fade within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medication may be used to minimize discomfort. If your procedure required stitches, you should avoid washing or rubbing the stitches and follow all post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Sosa. In most situations, the skin will scab over and heal within 2 – 3 weeks with proper aftercare and application of topical medication.
