Moles are lesions that occur naturally on the skin. They may be present since birth or develop with time and sun exposure. Moles may be associated with skin cancer, therefore any moles on the body should be regularly examined for changes in size, color, and other warning signs. Most moles, however, are harmless. Given their nature, moles may be removed for medical or cosmetic reasons.
Dr. Surowitz and Dr. Garcia practice strictly surgical removal. In some cases, a mole may be shaved and contoured flush with the surrounding skin. In other cases, it will be completely excised with an incision, followed by plastic surgery performed with the highest regard for a cosmetic closure.
Scar Revision in Charlotte
Scars are permanent reminders of past trauma or surgery, but some are more noticeable than others due to their texture, color, width, position, and other factors. Particularly visible scars can be camouflaged with scar revision surgery so as to be much less noticeable.
Certain scars can be handled with a simple scar revision surgery that includes excising the scar and carefully closing the incision so the healing process leaves a much less noticeable mark.
In some cases, the scar is highly visible due to tension in the skin or due to the location of the scar. Surgical scar revision techniques involve your facial plastic surgeon easing the tension and in some cases reorienting the line of the scar itself to fall within the natural lines and contours of the face. Intentional irregularities in incisions and closures are quite effective at camouflaging the scar itself by tricking the eye.
