Dr. DuPéré’s Mole, Cyst & Lipoma Excision Techniques
Dr. DuPéré removes moles, cysts, and lipomas under local anesthesia in our office.
Mole removal can occur surgically or via electrodessication. No downtime is required, and patients can resume most normal daily activities immediately. Surgical mole excision requires suture removal after 7 days for the face and 12 to 14 days for the body. Electrodessication results in a scab that will heal within 1 to 2 weeks.
In cyst excision, the entire shell of a cyst must be removed so the cyst does not recur.
When removing these masses, Dr. DuPéré practices special suturing techniques and places scars carefully, normally resulting in a faint and barely visible line. Whenever possible, he will place facial incisions within a natural line for better camouflage.
