Elective Lesion Removal

We all have benign growths on are skin that can be bothersome cosmetically. Many of these lesions can be simply frozen off with liquid nitrogen.  Alternatively and depending on the nature of the skin growth, using local anesthetic, Dr. Goldman can treat the lesions with a heated needle, shave them off, remove them as elliptical wedges followed with suture placement or if they are narrow based skin tags, snip them off with scissors

These are low risk procedures.  Risks associated with these procedures can include mild discomfort, bleeding after treatment, a small risk of wound infection, reappearance of the skin lesion or scarring.

Before undergoing lesion removal treatments, an optimal result with minimal bruising is best obtained by avoiding blood thinners 14 days prior to your procedure.  Please refer to the instructions available below concerning blood thinners.
