Cosmetic Lesions can be surgically removed. Most often lesions are cosmetic in nature and may be removed from various areas of the skin. Lesions are either acquired over time as a result of sun damage, aging, or traumas to the skin, or they may be hereditary in nature.

 

    The surgical procedure involves removal and closure of the skin lesion. The incision is planned according to the size and location of the lesion that is to be removed. Different types and materials in stitches are used to close the incisions. Conditional on the location of the lesions, the scar may be more or less noticeable.

 

    The stitches are left in place from 5 to 10 days depending on the site and the healing process. A dressing is used immediately after the procedure and it is removed 24 hours later, or depending on the dressing, sometimes a few days later. An ointment may be used to help the healing process and to avoid infection. Pain and bruising may be experienced in the area where the lesion had been removed. Physical activities should be avoided for two weeks and no water exposure for 48 hours. Also, sun exposure must be avoided until the healing process is completed. It is necessary to avoid placing pressure on the surgical area for a period of two weeks following the procedure. Dr. Campos will remove the stitches 5 to 10 days following surgery.
