Cosmetic Mole Removal / Unwanted Skin Growth removal
A mole that is considered “benign” is one that may be cosmetically removed. We can remove benign (non-cancerous) moles or skin growths anywhere on the body that you don’t find aesthetically pleasing.
We perform excisions, or skin removals, on “abnormal” moles (ie “dysplastic nevi”) or skin cancers. Surgical excision is a typically 20-30 minute in office procedure that involves taking a margin of normal healthy tissue around the site of the abnormal biopsy site.
Removal of Cysts and Lipomas
Full removal of a cyst is a minor out-patient procedure in which the area is numbed locally and the cyst is removed in its entirety. The removed lesion is always sent to the lab to confirm that it is indeed a benign cyst.
Electrodesiccation and Curettage
Electrodesiccation and Curettage (also called EDC or ED&C) is a procedure used to remove skin cancer. Most cases of these types of cancer can be cured if they are found and removed early.
