Excision

WHAT IS EXCISION?

An excision is the full extraction of a superficial skin lesion. Common excisable skin lesions include nevi (moles, birthmarks and beauty marks) as well as subcutaneous lumps and bumps. Excising is often a better option than simply paring off the lesion. In the case of getting rid of a mole, excision removes the whole mole as opposed to just the head. No pigmented cells are left behind and there is a low chance of the mole growing back. If it does, it does not happen for a long time. Often, sutures are used to help the skin heal.
