Removal of benign skin lesions (birthmarks) and subcutaneous tumors (lipomas, fibromas, neurinomas, etc.). Benign tumors occur slightly more often in males than in females – in the ratio 1.4: 1. After the operation a preparation can be sent for tissue examination, which determines the nature of the tumor. As a rule, such operations can be performed under local anesthesia. General anesthesia can be done, if necessary. The wound may be washed with soap and water from the second day after the operation. Sutures are removed at a surgeon’s outpatient appointment in 7 – 10 days.
