What are skin tags?

Skin tags are benign and painless growths that appear as small, soft, and often pedunculated (stalk-like) protrusions on the skin’s surface. They are typically flesh-colored or slightly darker and can vary in size from a few millimeters to a centimeter in diameter. These growths are commonly found in areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, armpits, groin, and under the breasts. While these benign skin growths are harmless, they can be removed by Dr. Warner at our practice in Lake Mary, Florida. Request a consultation today to find out how we can help you.

What causes skin tags to develop?

While the exact cause is not fully understood, they are believed to develop due to friction, hormonal changes, or genetic predisposition. This skin concern is harmless and does not require treatment unless they cause discomfort or aesthetic concerns. However, if desired, they can be easily and safely removed at our practice through the use of cryotherapy.

How can Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery help?

Skin tags can be easily and safely removed at our practice by surgical excision. Excision of skin lesions is considered cosmetic unless impeding vision, causing pain or discomfort.
