Any time a skin lesion changes color, increases in size, bleeds, or develops irregularly shaped edges, it should be considered for potential removal in order to reduce any health risks. Using surgical and nonsurgical techniques, lesion removal safely eliminates unwanted or concerning growths with minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. This restores the face to a healthy aesthetic balance, yielding natural and beautiful results.

What Are the Benefits of Being Treated by an Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon?

The delicate tissues of the face can be especially vulnerable to surgical procedures because the results not only impact functionality but also appearance. For this reason, receiving treatment from an experienced oculofacial plastic surgeon can remove the concerning lesions and repair the surface tissues in such a way that preserves your complexion. Dr. Cox specializes in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, so you can feel at ease knowing that she will meticulously care for your skin’s appearance during her treatment process.

How Do I Know If I Am a Good Candidate?

If you have one or more marks, warts, moles, skin tags, keratoses, or any other growths on your face that you want to remove for aesthetic or health-related reasons, you may be an excellent candidate for lesion removal.

Because lesions can pose potential health risks and are often located on an area of skin that is difficult to conceal, such as the eyelids, nose, cheeks, forehead, chin, neck, or hands, an experienced plastic surgeon has the proper skill and technique required to protect the health and appearance of the tissues in question.

It is important to diagnose and treat the skin to prevent any potential risks. If you want to improve your complexion, whether for practical or aesthetic reasons, schedule your consultation with Dr. Cox for lesion removal in Boulder today.

What Can I Expect from the Procedure?

Lesion removal is a simple process that can usually be performed using a local anesthetic. While the procedure is essentially painless, the exact method used depends on the location, depth, and size of the lesion. Some removal techniques include:

  • Shaving
  • Excision

Dr. Cox will discuss the best method for your specific condition during your consultation, and she will choose the most sophisticated path to leave the least amount of scarring. You can count on exceptional care and exemplary results that will put your mind at ease.

What Is the Recovery Process?

Following the procedure, the treated area may feel sore and uncomfortable, but this is effectively managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

Bruising and swelling are uncommon, and any discomfort usually fades within a week. If sutures are used, patients will return after a week or so to have them removed and to assess the recovery of the area.

Bandages must be maintained for the first week in conjunction with gentle cleansing and an ointment to maximize healing. As long as the dressing is securely protecting the area, patients are able to resume their regular daily activities immediately. Typically, the treated area may be a little red and form a scab that heals within 2-3 weeks. As long as you follow Dr. Cox’s post-treatment recovery recommendations, results will continue to improve over the next few months.
