What Is Lesion Excision?

Lesion excision is a standard dermatological surgical procedure to eliminate various skin abnormalities, including moles, cysts, lipomas, and skin tags. During the procedure, we carefully remove the unwanted growth using precise techniques to minimize scarring and ensure optimal aesthetic outcomes. This meticulous approach addresses cosmetic concerns and alleviates discomfort or irritation associated with the lesion. By removing these lesions, patients can experience improved skin health and renewed confidence.

Is Lesion Excision Right for Me?

Lesion excision is ideal for individuals with abnormal or bothersome skin growths, such as moles, cysts, or skin tags, that may cause discomfort, affect appearance, or pose a risk of malignancy. Symptoms that might indicate a need for lesion excision include changes in the size, shape, color, or texture of a skin lesion and pain, itching, bleeding, or irritation. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our experienced team here at Ascentist Plastic Surgery. During this consultation, we can assess your situation, discuss your desires, and determine a plan of action tailored to your needs.

What to Expect: The Lesion Excision Procedure

During a lesion excision procedure, the area around the lesion is cleaned thoroughly and numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Once the area is numb, we carefully remove the lesion using a scalpel or similar instrument to excise it while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. The wound is then meticulously closed with sutures or surgical adhesive to facilitate proper healing and minimize scarring. The entire procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and complexity of the lesion. Lesion excision is rooted in surgical oncology and dermatology principles, aiming to remove abnormal or potentially harmful growths from the skin while promoting optimal healing and cosmetic outcomes, ideally lifting your spirit in the end.

Lesion Excision Recovery

Following lesion excision, patients can expect mild discomfort, swelling, and redness in the treated area, which should subside within a few days. It's essential to keep the wound clean and dry as it heals, following any specific care instructions provided by our team. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for about a week to allow for proper healing. 

Any sutures or dressings will be removed during a follow-up appointment, usually within a week or two after the procedure. Over time, the area will continue healing, with any residual redness or scarring fading gradually. Regular follow-ups with our team are essential to monitor the healing process and address any concerns that may arise.
