Removal of skin lesions is performed by Dr. Shahin Fazilat to eliminate any abnormal growth on the skin (a lesion) such as a wart, a mole, or skin cancer. There are a variety of reasons why you would have a lesion removal procedure, such as for cosmetic reasons, if the lesion if causing skin irritation, or if the lesion is either precancerous or cancerous because of skin cancer.

The SF | Bay Area Plastic Surgery difference
Removal of skin lesions surgery is a common procedure performed by Dr. Fazilat in his practice. Typically, operations are performed as an out-patient procedure under local anesthesia; surgical times are 5 to 20 minutes per procedure.
During removal of skin lesion surgery, Dr. Fazilat will clean the skin and numb the skin surrounding your lesion with a local anesthetic. Some of Dr. Fazilat’s patients also have their removal of skin lesions combined with other procedures, such as breast augmentation, breast lift, a Mommy Makeover, a tummy tuck, body lift, thigh/arm lift, or laser liposuction to make the rest of your body more beautiful.
