Benign & Malignant Skin Lesions

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.


All procedures involving the diagnosis and removal of benign and malignant skin lesions are carried out in our modern facilities by renowned Plastic Surgeon, Reconstructive Surgeon and Aesthetic Surgeon Mr Sean T. O`Sullivan. We understand the trepidation which can come with any procedure, which is why we always do our utmost to deliver a relaxing environment. We are always available to answer any queries you may have involving the procedures around benign and malignant skin lesions. If you would like some more information, please feel free to contact us by phone or via email.
