The diagnosis and treatment of skin lesions are important in the prevention of skin cancer. There are also a variety of non-cancerous skin lesions that can be treated by a facial plastic surgeon. Moles are common skin lesions which are black or brown spots located on any part of the body. It is important to ensure that the moles/lesions are simply benign and non cancerous. They can be present from birth or develop over time. Skin lesions can become unsightly or uncomfortable which are major reasons to seek the expertise of a qualified facial plastic surgeon to skillfully remove the lesion/mole and improve the appearance of the skin.
Below are a few of the non-cancerous skin lesions that the surgeons can treat or remove:
- Precancerous skin lesions
- Seborrheic Keratosis
- Epidermoid cysts
- Sebaceous cysts
- Skin tags around the eyelids
Head and neck lipomas are benign tumors made up of fat. They can be found in the scalp, forehead, face or neck and grow over time to become unsightly and uncomfortable.
