What Are Cysts and Moles?
Cysts and moles are abnormal growths that develop on the skin. A cyst is a pocket of tissue that contains fluid or other substance. Moles are small areas that are a different color than the surrounding skin. Moles may be flat in comparison to surrounding skin or slightly raised.
What Are the Benefits of Cyst/Mole Removal?
Cysts and moles typically do not require medical attention unless:
- The cyst causing chafing or rubbing or contains fluid from an infection
- The mole is caused by skin cancer
- The cyst or mole represents a cosmetic concern for the patient
Any surgeon can remove a cyst and mole, but only plastic surgeons are trained in techniques to remove the abnormal growth and preserve the aesthetics of the area.
What Should I Expect from My Cyst/Mole Removal?
The primary goal of cyst/mole removal is to remove the abnormal growth in a way that produces the least amount of scarring possible. You will have a scar, but we take extra steps to ensure that the scar is minimized in both size and coloration.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of your cyst/mole removal are permanent. If the mole is cancerous, we submit a sample of the growth to a lab to ensure clean margins that reduce the risk of the cancer spreading.
