Excisional Biopsy

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

In case have a mole, lesion, tumor, or other skin growth, chances are the you need a shave excision to remove it. Surgical excision uses multiple horizontal cuts with a sharp razor to excise the growth. Dr. Dima at WellMedica is board certified cosmetic laser surgeon who will analyze your skin and perform excisional biopsy but if she suspects the growth is cancerous, she may send it to a laboratory for testing.

Our excisional biopsy is a simple procedure that involves the removal of growths, such as moles, lesions, and tumors, from your skin. The primary tool which Dr. Dima uses in this procedure is a sharp razor. After analyzing your skin she may decide to use an electrode to feather the edges of the excision site to make the scar less noticeable.

When is excisional biopsy recommend?

Depending on the unwanted skin growth you have, Dr. Dima Ali decides whether you require a excisional biopsy or any other treatment we provide at WellMedica. The excisional biopsy procedure is simple, less invasive and expensive to perform than a full-thickness skin excision. A full-thickness skin excision requires sutures, or stitches, while a shave excision doesn’t. As a result, a shave excision typically produces a less noticeable scar.

What to expect from excisional biopsy?

Once the treatment is over Dr. Dima is likely to ask you to keep the excision site dry for 24 hours, and provide you with instructions about when to remove or change the bandage. While it’s healing, you should keep the site covered when you’re in bright sunlight, as a sunburn can permanently darken the wound, making the scar more noticeable.

As it is a shave excision procedure, the excision site may be red for a few weeks, but it will gradually get lighter. Try to be patient; the healing process can be slow. If you notice excessive scarring or signs of infection developing, call us or visit Dr. Dima and she will help you with it. Schedule An Appointment

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *
