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.

Why choose Wake Plastic Surgery?

Our board-certified plastic surgeons will provide just as much attention to a bothersome non-cancerous defect on the face as they will to their largest cosmetic surgeries. They understand 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.

Our Skin Lesions Results

What are some common skin lesions that our surgeons can help remove?

How difficult is the surgery?

Most lesions are easily removed with just local anesthesia in as little as 15-30 minutes. Both Dr. Purzycki and 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. We try to make the procedure affordable for those who are paying out of pocket.

Where are the procedures performed?

Wake Plastic Surgery has a private surgical suite specifically for small procedures in addition to our fully accredited operating room facility. Having this luxury allows us to avoid the hassle of going to a hospital or outpatient OR facility to have the procedure performed. It also allows our patients to be treated in a comfortable and casual environment while minimizing traffic through our larger operating theatre.
