Cosmetic surgery


Do you have a benign lesion such as a cyst or lipoma that is causing aesthetic or physical discomfort? Would you like to enhance the appearance of your skin and regain your self-confidence?

Attain a higher level of comfort and satisfaction


An excision is a minor surgery that can be performed on patients with various benign skin lesions such as cysts, lipomas, moles, warts, or non-cancerous skin tumors. This surgical procedure is suitable for both patients looking to remove aesthetically displeasing or bothersome lesions and those who need to eliminate lesions that pose a risk or potential danger to their health.

Objectives of Excision
An excision is a common surgical procedure that effectively removes benign skin lesions. The primary goal of this surgery is to completely remove the lesion while minimizing the size of the scar. Indeed, an excision surgery aims to achieve a satisfactory aesthetic result while preserving the functionality of the treated area. Thus, the scar left after an excision should be discreet and well-healed to provide an optimal outcome. Finally, an excision can be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to quickly resume their daily activities.


Cosmetic surgery under local anesthesia

During a cosmetic surgery under local anesthesia, such as an excision, the patient is awake and conscious throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Guberman locates the area to be treated and applies local anesthesia to numb the area. The patient may feel slight pressure or a pulling sensation but does not experience pain. Dr. Guberman then proceeds with the incision and excision of the benign lesion. The duration of the surgery may vary depending on the size and complexity of the lesion.


After the surgery, the patient is allowed to return home on the same day. Dr. Guberman provides instructions on how to care for the wound and may prescribe medication to manage pain or discomfort. Post-operative care typically involves regular dressing changes and monitoring the wound for any signs of infection or complications. The recovery time varies depending on the size and depth of the excised lesion, but most patients can resume their usual activities within a few days.
