Depending on the type and size of skin lesion needing to be removed, there are different methods that may be used. Whenever possible, the least invasive technique is used for biopsy purposes, but some lesions will require surgical removal. At MJR Dermatology, our experienced and board certified dermatologist, Dr. Matthew Reschly, utilizes the most effective and latest techniques for skin lesion removal. He performs skin dissection procedures, when necessary, at our medical center in Lawrenceville, GA.

Whether you want to have a keloid scar removed or you have a suspicious mole that needs to be biopsied and tested, there are situations where surgical excision is the best method for lesion removal. While punch and shave methods tend to be less invasive for biopsy purposes, there are times when it is best to remove the entire lesion, then perform testing. Cryotherapy can be used for effective skin lesion removal, but it does not allow for examination of the cells that are removed, which is when skin dissection is the best option.

Advanced Skin Excision

Dr. Reschly has over 25 years of practical experience in performing complex general dermatology procedures, including biopsies, skin lesion removal and skin dissection. There are specific techniques that are used to remove skin tissue samples for accurate diagnosis of skin conditions. Dr. Reschly will carefully examine the skin lesion that needs removal and determine the best excision method to obtain a viable sample for lab testing. This can ensure that if there are any diseased or mutated cells within the growth, they can be properly identified to determine the best treatment going forward.

Skin dissection procedures are usually performed under local anesthesia and are an outpatient surgery. Dr. Reschly strives to only remove as much skin and tissue as is necessary to reduce the size of the scar and allow for the best possible aesthetics after the wound heals.

If you need a skin lesion removed for any reason, you want the expertise of a highly experienced dermatologist. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Reschly, call us at MJR Dermatology. We can book your skin lesion removal consultation at our clinic in Lawrenceville, GA.
