As facial plastic surgeons, we are very aware of all cosmetic concerns within the face, neck, and scalp. Many patients are bothered by growths on their skin that are very noticeable and unattractive. We commonly remove these lesions and do so in a cosmetically-pleasing fashion. In some cases, if there is concern for a possible skin cancer, we will recommend that we remove the lesion in such a way that it can be sent for analysis under the microscope by the pathologist. This is known as a skin biopsy and can be performed with a punch, wide excision, or shave excision, depending on the lesion, concern for cancer, and location. Most insurance plans will cover any biopsies or pathology fees that are associated with removing a suspicious lesion.
We also commonly remove growths on the face and neck simply for cosmetic purposes. If you are concerned about a lesion on your face or neck, let us take a look and determine if there is a need for a biopsy or if we could remove the lesion in such a way as to make it much more aesthetically-pleasing to the eye.
