Lesion Excision Removing imperfections, revealing confidence, and enhancing skin health

What is

Lesion Excision in Dubai

Skin Lesion Excision is a medical procedure during which a surgeon removes a cancerous skin lesion along with a surrounding tissue area referred to as the margin.

How it works

How does Lesion Excision Treatment work?

During the procedure, the lesion is surgically excised using a sharp surgical blade. This excision includes removing a small cuff of seemingly healthy skin from the surrounding area. Typically, stitches are employed to aid in the healing process. These stitches are typically placed both beneath the skin and on the surface to secure and close the wound.

what to expect

How does the Lesion Excision Procedure look like?

During the procedure, your doctor will use small forceps to gently grasp the skin lesion and lift it up. Then, they will use small, curved scissors to meticulously cut around and beneath the lesion. In some cases, a curette, which is an instrument used for cleaning or scraping the skin, may be employed to remove any remaining parts of the lesion. Stitches are seldom necessary for this type of procedure.
