Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world. The term “skin lesion” is used to refer to any growth on your skin. Skin lesions can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign cysts, skin tags). The face is an area of the body where meticulous and intentional removal (excision) of a skin lesion is necessary to preserve the aesthetic appearance and function of the face.
What is a Skin Lesion Excision Procedure at That Face?
Each skincare lesion procedure has the same goal: To return your face to its natural form and function as closely as possible. Some of the skin lesion excision and repair procedures Dr. Sulyman-Scott performs include:
- Excision: The removal of lesions including cysts, skin tags, moles, or other skin growths
- Skin and Tissue Grafts: Taking skin and tissue (such as cartilage) from one area of the body and using it to fix another part.
- Primary Repair: Closing of an existing wound after a lesion excision (usually after MOH’s surgery).
- Local and Regional Flap Reconstruction: This uses nearby skin and tissue to fix the wound.
