Surgical removal of neoplasms is a common method of destroying benign neoplasms (atheroma, fibroids, wen). This is a reliable and radical method, which is indispensable if you need to get rid of a large or deep formation.
Using modern methods of surgery, you can fully remove a benign neoplasm in any part of the face and body. There will be only a small trace – a subtle neat scar.
Features of surgical removal of tumors
The surgical method makes it possible after the procedure for removing the tumor to send him for histological examination. This is very true in cases where there is a suspicion of a malignant formation.
Surgical removal of neoplasms is performed under local anesthesia. First, a small incision is created through which the tumor tissue is removed. Next, a neat cosmetic seam is applied. It is removed after surgery for 4-6 days. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. This means that after the procedure, you can immediately return home.
Indications for surgery
Indications for surgical intervention may be the presence of formation, as well as:
increase in size;
Only a qualified doctor can determine the volume and type of surgery. It all depends on the quality and size of the neoplasm, as well as on medical history. Viral papillomas are most often removed by laser coagulation, electrocoagulation, cryodestruction, but there are cases when excision is necessary.
The remaining neoplasms are often excised in healthy tissues. If the size of the neoplasm is large, you need skin plastics to close the skin defect. Anesthesia may be general or local.
Frequently, the removal of benign skin tumors carries a significant oncological and prophylactic effect. In this vein, the psychological readiness of the patient, his understanding of the essence of the disease, and trust in the doctor and institution are of great importance. It is also necessary to consider a number of contraindications to the procedure:
severe somatic diseases;
critical days for women;
damage to the skin at the site of the proposed operation (eczema, dermatitis, etc.);
exacerbation of chronic disease;
acute infectious disease.
