Surgical Excision

Are you dealing with an unwanted lump, bump or skin tag?

Don’t be embarrassed, these things happen to everyone and there is help.

Baker Rejuvenation Centre offers a range of surgical excisions (minor surgical removal procedure) to help you feel confident and ready to take on the world. Dr. Stephen Baker is an Oculoplastic Surgeon, so if you have a lesion around the eye area that you would like removed he is highly trained in this type of removal.

There are many different kinds of skin lesions that involve excision, two examples are moles and skin tags.

How will the procedure work?

  1. Dr. Baker will meet with you to decide what is the best form of treatment for your skin impurity.
  2. If he believes removing the lesion is the best option, he will inject the area with a local anesthetic.
  3. Removing the mark is usually a simple procedure that takes less than five minutes.
  4. Once completed, the area is covered with a bandage to ensure it is protected from any bacteria.

Is there downtime?

Not really! If you are having an impurity removed around your eye, Dr. Baker may have you wear an eyepatch until the following morning and apply an antibiotic ointment for a few days after to prevent infection, but most patients are able to return to normal activities right after surgery.
