Benign Skin Lesion Removal

What is Benign Skin Lesion Removal?

Asset 1

Benign skin lesion removals include the removal of cysts, lipomas, skin tags, and any other lesions that may bother you. You don’t need a medical reason for pursuing benign skin lesion removal; in fact, if the lesion bothers you from a cosmetic point of view, this minor procedure is a good choice for you.

The ultimate goal of benign skin lesion removal is to completely remove the lesion while minimizing post-op scarring. Patients who undergo benign skin lesion removal feel more confident about their skin and their appearance, making this a procedure that can be a real game-changer!

Twin Ports Dermatology can offer quick and easy treatments for patients who are interested in benign skin lesion removal.

Candidates for a Skin Lesion Removal

The best candidates for benign skin lesion removal are individuals who are bothered by the appearance of a lesion, skin tag, mole, or any other imperfection.

How Does It Work?

Benign skin lesion removal is a surprisingly straightforward procedure that can be performed in under 45 minutes.

During the removal process, your dermatology provider will numb the skin lesion and either use a scalpel or special tool to remove the lesion.

Benign skin lesion removal results include the removal of the offending lesion, mole, or tag. 


Recovery from benign skin lesion removal is minimal, as most patients are able to return to their normal routines right away.

The removal area should be treated with vaseline or Aquaphor for the first few days in order to avoid infection and speed up healing.

Patients should be aware that they may be left with a small scar after the treatment.
