At Plastos Surgical we can facilitate the diagnosis and removal of benign and malignant skin lesions. A skin lesion refers to any area of the skin which differs from the surrounding areas, i.e. a lump, sore, mole or any other abnormality – in some cases skin cancer. The type of removal procedure can depend on the size, location and type of the skin lesion, all of which will be established during the consultation process. Local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area around the lesion before it is removed.
We can also perform laser excisions, which are used for the removal of:
Benign or pre-malignant skin lesions
Small blood vessels in the skin
As the safe treatment of any skin lesion (patch or growth) must begin with an accurate diagnosis, we provide this service in order to aid in the rapid diagnosis of moles and other skin lesions.
