Skin lesions are often tempting to get them removed. Fortunately, there are many skin treatments available that can provide you a smooth, clear, and healthy-looking skin. One such safe procedure is snip excision surgery.
What is Snip Excision?
If a patient has raised growth of skin lesions like skin tags, the doctor recommend scissor excision or snip excision. Under this procedure, a pair of forceps will be used to secure the lesion’s growth firmly, and then the doctor gently pulls it out of your skin. A small set of curved scissors will slightly lift the growth from under and around the skin. The entire procedure is carried out under anaesthesia for the patient’s comfort and smooth experience. Also, the process doesn’t need any sutures, so the chances of scar formation get minimized.
