Surgical Correction of Mole or Nevi
Moles or Nevi are the local raised or flat collection of skin pigment (melanin) under the skin. It may be hairy or non-hairy. Some people are born with moles, other moles appear over time. Many families have a type of mole known as dysplastic (atypical) moles, which can be associated with a higher frequency of melanoma or skin cancer. These are due to familial tendency to forming moles and may keep on coming in crops or increasing in size due to excessive exposure to sun rays. Sun exposure seems to play a role in the development of moles and may even play a role in the development of atypical or dysplastic moles. Many people refer to a mole as any dark spot or irregularity in the skin, like any birthmark, abnormal collection of blood vessels (hemangiomas) or keratosis (benign or precancerous spots, which appear after about age 30 years).
Moles or Nevi are frequently removed for a variety of reasons, like their odd-looking appearance or risk of developing skin cancer, which can be very dangerous. But only the very large nevi (giant nevi has a tendency to develop skin cancer).
They can be removed by three surgical methods
- Excision (cutting) in natural skin crease line followed by very fine stitches, so that after few weeks of surgery they are almost invisible. Even the bigger moles can be treated by this method may provide excellent result & almost invisible scar lines.
- Round Excision with a punch or blade. This method is useful for very tiny moles that are less that 1-mm in size
- The lump is much bigger than the original scar — it may began as an insect bite or scratch
- Larger nevi (giant nevi) may need tissue expansion for its complete removal
- Although laser removal has been tried for the moles, it is not usually the method of choice for most deep moles because the laser light doesn’t penetrate deeply enough to be effective.
Scarring Left After Application Of Chuna over the Moles are very difficult to remove.
PLEASE PLEASE DON’T APPLY ANY KIND OF CHEMICAL or CHUNA OVER THE MOLES. THEY ALWAYS LEAD TO SUCH A BAD & DIFFICULT SCARRING THAT CAN NOT BE POSSIBLE TO REMOVE IN FUTURE EVEN BY AN EXPERIENCED PLASTIC SURGEON.
Common warts are local dome shaped irregular ferny type of growths in the skin that are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. Although they are considered to be contagious, it is very common for just one family member to have them. In addition, they often affect just one part of the body (such as the hands or the feet, finger and nails, face and neck) without spreading over time to other areas. It is more common in those people who are going to barber’s shop for shaving due to cross infection of HPV Virus from other people.
Treatment for Common Warts
Keloid scars having familial tendency and are more common is dark skinned people. Keloid scars are very difficult to treat, if not impossible.
Hypertrophic Raised Scars
Common warts can be annoying to anyone. The best, easiest & most effective treatment of wart is fine-feathered low voltage electro-fulguration using low voltage high frequency diathermy. The fine controlled local heat prevents recurrence of warts in future. The use of electro fulguration in an experienced hand is the best treatment available for the warts and may lead to almost none or negligible scarring, with no chance of recurrence.
Application of Salicylic-acid preparations (available as drops, gels, pads, and plasters) to warts may also lead to dissolution of protein keratin (which makes up most of both the wart and the thick layer of dead skin that often tops it) and cure from the warts.
