Removal of Benign Growths, Moles and Skin Tags

As we age, moles can darken and change shape, while skin tags and other benign growths can develop. It’s important to keep a close eye on moles and to have any suspicious skin irregularities checked for the possibility of skin cancer.  Even if your mole or skin growth is found to be harmless, you might still be bothered by its appearance and want to have it removed.  Dr. Seidenberg can remove moles, skin tags and other benign growths right in his New York office.  Depending on the size and location of the growth to be removed, the procedure usually takes minutes and usually doesn’t require any stitches.  After a quick, nearly-pain free injection, the removal is painless.

What can be treated? Procedure Recovery
