Removal of Lesions and Growths (Lumps and Bumps/Haemangioma)
Unusual growths, bumps or marks on the skin can sometimes be a source of worry for one’s health. While they some may be malignant, but mostly benign.
To put our minds to rest, removing such lumps and blemishes is usually the optimal first step. This way, the growth will be further investigated in the laboratory under a microscope, and you will also be freed from worrying about symptoms and what-ifs.
There are several methods to removing these lumps, bumps and lesions, both cancerous and non-cancerous, and each case is determined by the surgeon, depending on the size and position of these lesions.
Scars can occur due to various reasons, such as injuries, previous surgery, or poor healing from earlier wounds. With scar revision surgery, these scars can be improved or reduced in appearance, and restored to its function.
There are different methods of surgery, depending on the location of the scar, as well as the type of scar that is left. It is recommended that patients undergo a detailed consultation with our plastic surgeon to make the best choice regarding treatment. If these scars have been caused due to previous trauma, burns or medical surgery, the scar revisions are accordingly categorised as medical procedures.
1. Skin peeling treatment
Skin peeling treatment is commonly used on relatively thin scars, spread over a wide area and confined to the upper layers of the skin. As the name indicates, this technique peels away scar tissue and texture on the top layers of the dermis, leaving it to regenerate into a healthy and smoother new skin. While laser treatment is the usual option, acne scars require other machines. We recommend consulting our specialist to determine if skin peeling treatment is the best solution to treat your scar condition.
2. Tissue expansion
Skin damaged can be caused by servere trauma. It could affect and restrict joint movement due to skin pulling across the scar site. This can be treated by tissue expansion to promote the growth of healthy supplementary skin used for the replacement of damaged skin. An expander is inserted under skin around the scar area. Overtime, the expander is filled with saline solution every 1 to 2 weeks causing the skin around it to stretch and grow. The tissue expander will be removed once the new skin has reached to its ideal size.
3. Skin graft
Skin grafting is often perform for burn patients whereby skin is removed from one area of the body and transplanted to another to treat the affected area.
