Removal of skin lesions

Benign and cancerous moles

Skin lesions, like benign moles, are quite common and can be congenital or acquired. Excessive exposure to solar radiation, mostly UVB and hereditary predisposition can be the main causes. There is a large variety of these lesions according to their characteristics, but it is important to mention that, between those, there are cases that are malignant or could potentially become malignant, thus requiring urgent professional attention.

What are the reasons to remove moles?
  • oncological (skin cancer or potentially cancerous moles)
  • aesthetic
  • functional

When should we worry about our moles?

  • new lesions
  • change in shape, colour or texture
  • itching or burning sensation
  • bleeding

 For those that are superficially based, Laser treatment is the ideal way to avoid remaining scarring.

 

How skin lesions can be removed?

All these lesions, located into the dermis, must be fully excised surgically and, in case of malignances with sufficiently safe borders, accompanied by additional histopathological examination.

For those that are superficially based, Laser treatment is the ideal way to avoid remaining scarring.

In any case local anaesthesia is applied for a painless procedure.

Why done by a plastic surgeon?

  • to minimise scarring
  • to have safe and efficient treatment without distortion, especially in sensitive areas like the face; a plastic surgeon is trained to repair simple as well as complex tissue deficits
  • because he has the full range of choices available
