Dealing with Lumps & Bumps

Have a few skin growths that aren’t serious but affect the way you see yourself int eh mirror each day? At Dr. Aoife Turner Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of techniques to help you remove those lumps and bumps that drive you crazy when you look in the mirror each day.

What Causes Lumps and Bumps?

As you age, you may notice lots of spots that appear on your skin. While they’re typically not serious, they can be frustrating. Some of them may have appeared when you were a teenager. Others may have come with the natural aging process thanks to sun damage, blocked glands, or weight gain. No matter what the cause of your concerning spot, though, we offer lumps and bumps removal services that help you reach your aesthetic goals.

The Process

Lumps and bumps removal techniques depend a bit on the type of spot with which you’re concerned. Lumps under the skin can sometimes be fatty deposits – typically called lipomas – or cysts. Using a local anaesthetic, we’ll remove them with laser technology that will help completely eliminate the source of your frustration. If the lump or bump is of a concerning nature, we will have it tested in a lab setting after removal so you can get the peace of mind you deserve. Often you can go home just hours after your procedure, and recovery time is incredibly short. Things will be back to normal for you in a matter of days.

Candidates for Lumps and Bumps Removal

Wondering if you qualify for a procedure like this one? Good candidates for these procedures are those who are at or near their target weight, are in good overall health, and non-smokers. Smoking can increase the time it takes for your body to heal. We’ll discuss a bit about your health history at your consultation session so we can ensure you’re healthy enough to move forward.

After Care With Lumps and Bumps Removal

If you have a lumps and bumps removal procedure with us, we’ll review aftercare instructions with you on the day of your procedure. Typically, you’ll need to rest comfortably at home during the 24 hours after your procedure, then you’ll need to apply healing ointment a few times a day until the spot is healed. You’ll also need to keep it out of the sun for a few weeks after the procedure.
