Removal of Skin Lesions

We sometimes have growths on our skin that require removal, either because they are unattractive or we don’t like the way they look, or because they might be skin cancer. Plastic surgeons are trained to remove these growths with minimal scarring and deformity.

Every lesion is different, as different as are people. Talk with Dr. Moses about the options for removal, including where to place the incisions, which anesthetic to use, where the procedure should be done, and what the final scar may look like.

While nobody wants to have surgery unless necessary, sometimes plastic surgery to remove skin growths leaves an inconspicuous scar rather than an obvious and/or unattractive growth, or one that might be cancerous.
