What's involved in removing a skin tag from your eyelid?
I have a skin tag on one of my eyelids that I realize is hardly noticeable to most people but is anything but to me. In fact, it's always the first thing I notice when I look at myself in the mirror, and it doesn’t make me happy, that's for sure. I'm not joking when I say I sometimes just feel like getting out some sharp scissors and cutting it off myself, but realize that would be kind of dumb, not to mention probably hurt a lot as well. Surely, removing something as minor as a skin tag can't be much of an ordeal for a cosmetic surgeon, right? Or am I way off the mark by suggesting that?
Very simple procedure. I would recommend a board certified plastic surgeon. No downtime. No pain. You will love your results. You are always welcome at our clinic In Laval - Montreal. Regards,
Eyelid skin tags are easily removed by numbing the area with local anesthetic and carefully snipping them off with a fine, sharp pair of scissors and magnification. The area then heals rapidly with an undetectable scar. Keeping the area (like all healing wounds) well-moisturized will speed the healing process.
Thank you for sharing your question. Skin Tag removal is a very simple procedure, and is done usually by A Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist. The area is anesthetized and the skin tag is excised. Sometimes a suture is required, but usually not necessary. I hope this was helpful to you.
Best Wishes, Dr. B.
Typically we numb the area with some local anestic, then we simply hold the tag with a tweezer and cut it off, sometimes we use a machine and burn it but you are numb either way. Its fast and simple.
