Excision of Moles, Warts, Skin Tags

Excision is the procedure in which the skin growth is typically cut off using surgical tools. This is generally done for deeper moles on which electro cautery has relatively less effect.

The Procedure:

The excision process is generally done under a local anaesthesia. Hence after a through cleaning of the area to be treated, the doctor injects an aesthetic locally.

Following this, as the anaesthesia takes effect the doctor uses surgical tools to cut out the unrequired growth.

The wound left behind after the surgery requires dressing and oral medicines for faster healing.

Results Expected:

The depth of the mole or growth that requires excision also means that the wound that is left behind after the procedure is susceptible to scarring. And often the treated area does scar. However often the scar too is an aesthetic improvement over the previously existing condition.
