What are skin lesions?

Skin lesions refer to any abnormal or unusual growth, mark, or change in the skin’s appearance. They can manifest in various forms, such as bumps, sores, discoloration, or lumps on the skin’s surface. It is crucial to have any suspicious or concerning lesions evaluated by a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment, if necessary. Regular self-examination and prompt medical attention can help ensure early detection and management of skin lesions, promoting skin health and overall well-being.

How can Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery help?

The excision of skin lesions is a common and effective treatment method that involves surgically removing the abnormal growth or lesion from the skin. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. Excision is suitable for various types of lesions, including moles, cysts, lipomas, skin tags, and certain types of skin cancers.

During the procedure, the lesion is carefully cut out, along with a margin of healthy tissue, to ensure complete removal. The excised tissue is then sent for further examination to determine if it is benign or malignant. Excision offers several benefits, including the removal of unsightly or bothersome lesions, prevention of potential complications or infections, and the ability to obtain a definitive diagnosis.

Additionally, the procedure can be customized to achieve optimal cosmetic results, with options such as suturing the incision, minimizing scarring, or performing additional reconstructive techniques if necessary. Overall, excision of lesions is a valuable treatment option that provides both therapeutic and aesthetic benefits, promoting healthier and clearer skin.
