DURING THE PROCEDURE
Techniques and volume of surgical procedures highly depends on localization of derivative. If derivative is on the facial area, surgery is done with a special precision, taking into account skin lines, wrinkles, tenseness and color. It is important that this procedure would be carried out by experienced specialist, since if the surgery is performed carelessly, it can lead to scars or hyperpigmentation.
Operation is usually done under local anesthesia. The incision is made within the healthy tissue, then the derivative is removed and postoperative incision is sewn up. In some cases, when the derivative and tissue areas that need to be removed are big, a special plastic surgery technique is used when skin’s defects are covered up. Sometimes a derivative may be sent for histological examination.
