What Is Skin Lesion Removal?

A skin lesion is a sore, a lump, or any other abnormal part of the skin. It may be cancerous or precancerous. A lesion removal can be done during a routine doctor’s visit or in an operating room, depending on the type and size of the lesion.

In most cases, curettage is performed after the lesion is numbed via freezing or local anesthesia. A small amount of surrounding tissue is removed as well to ensure that all malignant cells are excised.

I've been a patient of Dr.Nagys for almost 10 years. He definitely doesn't rush, he takes his time to talk to you and answer any questions or concerns you have. He has seen me through some challenging times of my life and has / and continues to help me. His office is always spotless, and all the ladies are very polite and also always there to answer any questions you have. The last thing i want is somwone who rushes you in and out. Dr.Nagy sits and talks to you and talks so you understand. I have recommended many people to his office and always will. Arielle has started removing a few small tattoos i have and she's very caring and kind also. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. Nagy is the best at what he does! He has a wonderful bedside manner and was extremely awesome with all of my questions. I’m a little over one week post op and already so incredibly happy with my results. The office is impeccable and beautiful. The staff is friendly and always helpful. Big shout out to Kim, she went above and beyond - from being reassuring, caring, friendly and so so patient with insane amounts of nerves and questions that I had. She’s the best! From consult to post op, they are a phenomenal team that I would highly recommend.

Office is clean and beautiful, staff is friendly and helpful, and worked hard to get my procedure approved by insurance. Dr Nagy is so knowledgeable, kind, careful, and thoughtful. He spent so much time with me. I had a fairly large cyst removed on my ring finger and was afraid I would have an awful scar and would never be able to wear my wedding rings again. Turns out, the scar is nearly invisible and my rings are on. Would 100% go back for a medical need and would refer him to anyone. I’m so thankful I found him.

Dr. Nagy and his staff are wonderful! I highly recommend him. They are all kind , compassionate and professional. After three months of dealing with an incision that refused to close on the top of my foot, I was referred to Dr. Nagy. He was able to find the problem during surgery and fix it. Now, I am able to return to the gym and the skin has completely healed! He is amazing!

Dr. Nagy and his staff are amazing. From the first time I stepped into his beautiful office, I was extremely comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional. Dr. Nagy and the nurses are kind and compassionate. I knew I was in good hands. Four months post surgery, and I couldn’t be happier! The experience was life changing for me. I’m so glad I trusted Dr. Nagy. No regrets!

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for skin lesion removal are men and women with warts, keratoses, moles, skin tags, melanoma, or constant skin irritation. They may want to undergo this procedure for practical or cosmetic reasons.

The Consultation

At the consultation, the doctor will check your medical history, examine your lesions, and ask about your goals. These can help determine the right lesion removal technique for you.

The Procedure

The simplest lesion removal procedures include shaving non-cancerous lesions until they are at skin level and using surgical scissors to cut off skin tags.

More complex lesion removal procedures involve getting rid of the lesion through laser therapy, surgical excision, or cryotherapy.

Most procedures take around 5 to 20 minutes or longer and are done with local anesthesia.

The Recovery Process

You will likely be able to go home right after the procedure. The treated area might feel tender and sore. Stitches will remain in place for 3 to 14 days until your next appointment, when they will be removed.

The Cost of Skin Lesion Removal

The cost of lesion removal varies depending on the number of lesions being removed, their sizes, and their locations. Its price also depends on the removal technique used.
