Standard excision, also known as surgical excision, is a commonly used surgical procedure in dermatology for the removal of skin lesions, including benign growths, suspicious moles, and skin cancers. It involves surgically cutting out the lesion along with a surrounding margin of healthy tissue.
The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort during the process. The dermatology provider will carefully remove the lesion using a scalpel, ensuring complete excision while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. Depending on the size and location of the lesion, sutures may be required to close the wound.
Standard excision is a versatile procedure that allows for accurate removal of various skin lesions. It provides the advantage of obtaining a tissue sample that can be sent for further laboratory analysis, aiding in the accurate diagnosis and identification of any underlying conditions.
After the procedure, the wound will need proper care to promote healing and minimize scarring. Our dermatology providers will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and follow-up care to ensure optimal healing and cosmetic outcomes.
At the California Dermatology Institute, our skilled dermatology providers have extensive experience in performing standard excisions. We understand the importance of thorough evaluation, precise excision, and meticulous wound closure to achieve the best possible results. Our commitment is to provide personalized care and support throughout the entire process.
