Non-Cancer Lesion Removal

Skin lesions come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and concern. Most freckles and moles are not worrisome in terms of causing medical problems, but they often can be cosmetically undesirable. Removal of skin lesions on the face and body is usually quite an easy process that is completed with local anesthesia.

Dr. Stoeckel will provide just as much attention to a bothersome non-cancerous defect on the face as he will to a cancerous one. He understands very well how even a small change can make a huge difference for his patients. You will find him to be extremely attentive and meticulous about helping you achieve the optimal results in a compassionate and understanding manner.

What are some common skin lesions that Dr. Stoeckel can help remove?

How difficult is the surgery?

Most lesions are easily removed with just local anesthesia in as little as 15-30 minutes. Dr. Stoeckel will remove the skin lesion while you are listening to music or relaxing and taking a bit of a nap.

Will this be covered by my insurance?

There are some skin lesion removal procedures that are covered by insurance still. But the insurance carriers are starting to exclude most that are clearly cosmetic in nature. Dr. Stoeckel tries to make the procedure affordable for those who are paying out of pocket.

Where are the procedures performed?

Dr. Stoeckel has a private surgical suite in which he performs all of his skin lesion removals. This avoids the hassle of going to a hospital or outpatient OR facility to have the procedure performed. The surgical suite is certified by AAAASF and meets all of the standards for safe and efficient patient care.
