Throughout our lives, we may experience some changes in our skin. Sometimes we experience unwanted skin growths such as moles, cysts, or lipomas that can be uncomfortable or cause irritation. Other times, we may wish to improve the look of scarring from previous surgeries or even change the appearance of the skin, like in the case of minor breast procedures. At Power Plastic Surgery, we offer a selection of minor surgical procedures to help improve the look of these skin changes, and boost your self-confidence! Our variety of minor surgical treatments include:
Because these procedures are minor surgical treatments instead of fully invasive ones, they tend to be much quicker to complete. There is also less recovery time needed, so you can get back to your daily routine sooner! Results are apparent sooner, and there are fewer side effects. Our team is highly skilled in all minor surgical procedures and will help you achieve the smooth, clear, aesthetically pleasing skin that you desire.
Moles are benign skin growths, which may be pigmented or skin-toned. If a mole is bothersome cosmetically or subject to irritation due to location (for example, when combing, shaving, or frequently irritated from overlying clothing), elective mole removal may be performed.LEARN MORE
Cysts are common benign bumps beneath the skin. They may develop from a block pore or oil gland. Skin cells and debris develop underneath the skin surface. This causes inflammation to develop and it becomes encapsulated or walled off by the body.LEARN MORE
A lipoma is a benign lump underneath the skin surface, which may have a similar appearance to a cyst. A punctum is not present overlying a lipoma and is a distinguishing feature. A lipoma consists of benign fat cells and may increase in size over time.LEARN MORE
Although it is not possible to remove a scar completely, its appearance may be improved through various techniques. Some scars may benefit from re-excision followed by meticulous wound closure.LEARN MORE
