Subcutaneous lesions and lumps on the skin such as moles, warts and skin tags can form in any part of the body such as head, neck, shoulders and back. These can be removed with chemicals or surgery.
Excision of skin lesions can be done in various ways, depending on the size and location of the lesion. These surgeries are performed under local anesthesia. Some of the different methods your surgeon may use to remove skin lesions are:
Your wound may be dressed or left open after the surgery based on the type of the surgery.
Like all invasive procedures, excision of skin and subcutaneous lesions may be associated with side effects such as pain, swelling, scarring, infections, changes in skin sensation, excessive bleeding and allergic reactions to the anesthetic.
