Skin Lesions Removal
Millions of people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year. While skin cancers like melanoma can be deadly, most skin cancers are slow growing and can be treated with removal of the skin lesions. There are a wide variety of skin lesions that are linked to skin cancer or precancerous conditions. Not only can they be a health risk, but they also can be unattractive on the skin. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg at Vantage Plastic Surgery offers advanced options for skin lesions removal at our clinics in Brooklyn and Manhattan in NYC.
Skin lesions come in many forms, some cancerous and others benign. Every person has some skin lesions or growths, from moles and warts to brown spots and acne. Any growth that has a different appearance than the skin around it can be considered a skin lesion. Many of these growths will disappear on their own, but some can be concerning if they are possibly cancer or if they impact the appearance of the skin. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, we offer removal of skin lesions for both health and cosmetic purposes, using meticulous techniques to reduce scarring and protect the aesthetic appearance of the skin.
Skin Cancer Plastic Surgery
Any skin lesion that could possibly be skin cancer should be examined by a doctor. It is important to know whether cancer cells are present and if they may have spread to other areas. Diagnosis of a skin lesion is the first step, and removal is the next consideration. Many people are concerned that skin lesion removal will leave a scar or flaw on their skin, especially when the lesion is on the face.
Skin cancer removal procedures can include simply scraping off a small growth with a scalpel, or it may require Mohs surgery or more intricate treatments. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg is a double board certified plastic surgeon that can work with your primary care physician for removal of skin lesions for both medical and cosmetic concerns. While most skin lesions can be removed by any doctor, a plastic surgeon can use their expertise to reduce scarring and damage to the skin and tissue during the removal procedure.
