Skin Excision

A skin excision is the removal of entire skin growths, e.g.: skin cancers by cutting them out under local anaesthesia. This is done to prevent the spread of skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or melanoma. Other reasons for removing entire lesions may be for diagnosis, cosmetic reasons, or if a lesion is symptomatic e.g. an inflamed cyst. The resulting wound will be repaired using fine stitches and a scar will remain after the wound heals. Some wounds may undergo abnormal skin healing and result in larger or raised scars known as hypertrophic or keloid scars. This can be further treated by your dermatologist if necessary.
