Your physician can surgically remove benign and malignant skin lesions in the office. The procedure involves local anesthesia and your doctor will determine the best way to remove and suture your skin to minimize the scar and give you the best cosmetic result.
Benign lesions that can be excised: Moles, Lipomas, Cysts, birthmarks, Glandular growths
Malignant lesions: Basal cell and sqamous cell carcinomas where Mohs surgery is not indicated, Melanoma, malignant glandular tumors
All our dermatologists are trained to perform straightforward excisions. Any excision that is more complicated, on a cosmetically sensitive area of the body, or needs a more significant repair or reconstruction will be referred to our Mohs surgeon, Dr. Carin Litani, who has performed thousands of skin reconstructive procedures.
