Mole / Skin Tag Removal Off The Face 

Mole / Skin Tag Removal Off The Face 

Mole Removal 

Moles are pigmented groups of cells that appear on the skin, often before the age of 20. Most moles are brown although some may appear black, blue, or skin-colored. Generally, moles are harmless and you won’t suffer any pain or discomfort unless something rubs against them. 

Skin tags are harmless flaps of soft skin that rise above the skin surface on a narrow stalk. The reason for their appearance is not known, but they commonly occur in the armpits and body folds, and also on the trunk and neck. 

Facial plastic and reconstruction surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides mole and skin tag removal to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.  

Should You Remove Moles or Skin Tags? 

If the mole or skin tag is not causing you any discomfort, you need not do anything about it. Sometimes, skin tags get enmeshed in jewelry or clothing causing pain and irritation of the skin. In such situations, or if you feel the skin tag mars your appearance, you may choose skin tag removal surgery. 

Moles that have remained unchanged do not need removal. If you find a particular mole has changed in size, shape or color compared to the others, have it examined by a doctor. If necessary, the surgeon will perform a biopsy to rule out the presence of cancer.  

How is Mole and Skin Tag Surgery Done? 

Skin tags are generally snipped off using surgical scissors or a scalpel. Moles may be shaved off the skin. Deeper moles need to be excised out of the skin to prevent their re-growth. When a cut is made, it will require to be stitched with sutures. 

Electro surgery involves the passing of an electric current through a wire which is then used to burn away the skin. For skin tags, the stem holding the tag is burnt away, detaching the tag. For moles, the upper skin layers are burned off. Multiple sessions may be necessary for complete mole removal. 

Burning may be slightly painful and therefore, the doctor numbs the area with local anesthesia before the procedure. Surgeons may choose to spray or swab the mole with liquid nitrogen in super-cold condition. A small blister forms due to the freezing and this later falls off on its own, healing the skin below.  

In case there is any bleeding, the surgeon applies some medication to stop it and bandages the area. The skin tag and mole removal procedures rarely leave any visible marks or scars. 

Don’t Remove Moles and Skin Tags at Home 

Cutting off skin tags with nail clippers or using mole removal pastes can be dangerous. It may cause bleeding and scarring and infections of the skin. It is best to have your moles examined by the surgeon who can then decide if it needs removal and carry out a safe procedure in their office.

What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

Create a Stronger Jaw Line with Injections or Implants

When you look at your face, do you notice a chin that looks like it is set way behind compared to the upper jaw? If yes, you have what is called a ‘retruded’ chin which is a medical term for a recessive or weak chin. In simple words, it means the thrust of your chin is not sufficient to make your jawline appear strong.  

This condition is easy to correct using chin implant or jawline contouring surgery. Facial plastic and reconstruction surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides chin and jawline enhancement surgery to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations. 

Plastic Surgery for Recessed Chin 

A receding chin mars the facial balance, especially in the lower portion of the face. Mouth exercises are generally not very successful in correcting a weak chin and jawline because the bones and soft tissue of the area cannot be greatly altered by exercising them. Different cosmetic surgery procedures are possible to deal effectively with this condition: 

Chin augmentation surgery or chin implant plastic surgery is the best solution. When a greater extent of augmentation is required, your surgeon may choose to perform a more elaborate procedure such as a sliding chin genioplasty. 

Chin implants are the easiest way to improve the look of your chin and lower jawline. The cosmetic surgeon makes a tiny cut through the mouth and inserts the biocompatible implant, positions it on the lower jaw, and sutures the cut.  

Double chin reduction procedure is used when there are deposits of submental fat. This may be done using Kybella injections or liposuction to create a stronger jawline. 

Sliding genioplasty is an invasive form of surgery and is reserved for extreme cases of recessed chins. The procedure is elaborate and recovery will take longer than the other methods. 

Why Undergo Chin Augmentation Surgery? 

Chin implant surgery helps to: 

  • Improve how your face looks from the front and the side 
  • Bring harmony between the upper and lower jaws 
  • Lend greater sense of vertical balance to the face 
  • Improve the look of your smile 

Customized Chin Augmentation 

When you consult a facial plastic surgeon, you should discuss the possibility of customizing the procedure to give you the exact look you desire. Good surgeons always consider the needs of patients along with the practical reality of their existing anatomical features. 

Most surgeons take multiple scans to assess your existing features and discuss the choices you have. Once the decision is made, they either use a pre-made prosthesis that matches your preference, or order a customized chin implant to fit you.  

Chin augmentation surgery is the simplest way to give you a strong jawline. In some cases, it may be necessary to use jaw lengthening procedures, or perform a neck lift or chin liposuction or a combination of these procedures to give you the exact appearance you desire.

  • Will I receive guidance that will help me prepare appropriately for the risks and challenges associated with brow lift surgery? 
  • Are the costs of the procedure informed in a transparent way? Is the estimate all-inclusive or are there any hidden expenses?

Facial Liposuction – Chin / Neck 

Facial Liposuction 

As the most visible areas of your face, the jaw and neck influence the aesthetics of your face. Therefore, having a double chin or fatty deposits in the neck area might have an adverse impact on your appearance. It is difficult to reduce the fatty deposits in your chin and neck through a balanced diet or by following a stringent exercise regimen.  

On the other hand, cosmetic surgery procedures such as double chin liposuction can significantly improve your neck and chin contours, and hence boost your self-confidence. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides facial liposuction to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations. 

Liposuction – a Proven Solution for Double Chin  

Double chin is a term used to refer to the fat pockets in front of the neck. Weight loss exercises may have little to no effect on decreasing double chin, but liposuction is a medically proven technique to address this issue. Liposuction eliminates double chin by dislodging the fat around the area and suctioning it out. This is done with the help of a suction cannula tube. 

Your cosmetic surgeon will insert this tube into the area of fat. Once inserted, they will manipulate it in such a way that excess fat becomes loose and can be suctioned out. If your skin is adequately elastic, it will tighten itself after the surgery. Otherwise, you may need to undergo another procedure called neck lift.  

A neck lift is a reconstructive procedure to tighten neck skin. Usually, patients are only given local anesthesia for liposuction. In addition to that, their recovery will be quick, provided they take postoperative guidelines seriously.  

Facial Liposuction for Both Men and Women 

Neck and chin liposuction is intended for both men and women. As a matter of fact, over time, almost every adult would develop fat deposits in their lower facial region. These deposits may grow into a double chin, which makes the face appear older. Liposuction plastic surgery will effectively eliminate this accumulated fat creating a lifting effect. In the end, patients will have a refreshed and rejuvenated face.  

Procedure for Neck and Chin Liposuction  

Generally, the procedure begins with a surgical nurse sterilizing and draping the patient’s neck and chin. Once the targeted areas are prepared, the plastic surgeon will then demarcate the site using a pen. Before the surgeon creates an incision, the anesthesia team will provide necessary sedation or local anesthesia.  

The surgeon will wait until the patient responds positively to anesthesia. Once the anesthetic takes effect, the surgeon will start making small incisions. After the incision is accurately traced through the marked site, a narrow tube called a cannula is inserted. This tube is connected to a suction pump wherein the surgeon will vacuum the excess fat out of the neck and chin.   

Risks Associated with Neck and Chin Liposuction 

Liposuction surgery might get complicated if a larger part of the body is being treated. The risks while removing substantial amounts of fat are higher than those with a smaller area of treatment. For neck and chin liposuction, the risks are minimized as the treatment sites are relatively small.  

Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for facial liposuction.

It is also known as head and neck surgery because the specialists receive training in both surgery and medicine. An otolaryngologist is commonly known as an ear, nose, and throat doctor, or an ENT specialist. 

This area of medicine dates back to the 19th century when physicians understood that the head and neck comprise a series of related systems. 

Physicians developed the tools and techniques for evaluating and treating issues of the head and neck, eventually creating a medical specialty. The American Academy of Otolaryngology reports that it is the oldest medical specialty in the US.

Nose

The care of the sinuses and nasal cavity is one of the main skills of an otolaryngologist. These specialists diagnose, treat, and manage allergies, smell disorders, sinusitis, nasal obstruction, and polyps due to septal deviation. They can also correct the appearance of the nose through rhinoplasty surgery. 

Throat

How much does Morpheus8 anti-aging treatment cost? 

Morpheus8 anti-aging 

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary, sub-dermal, adipose remodeling, radio-frequency (RF) device. This unique system fractionally remodels and contours the face and body.  

Many patients may not have a thorough understanding of this innovative non-invasive skin tightening procedure. For this reason, it is vital for the treatment provider to explain various facets of Morpheus8 anti-aging to them at the time of the pre-treatment consultation.  

During the pre-treatment consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will inform the patient about various aspects of Morpheus8 anti-aging treatment, including the approximate costs.  

Patients should ideally compare the costs and benefits of Morpheus8 with those of other non-surgical procedures to make an enlightened choice, depending on their cosmetic goals.  

Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides Morpheus8 anti-aging treatment to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations. 

Cost Comparison with Surgery 

In comparison to skin tightening cosmetic surgery for the face and body, Morpheus8 anti-aging non-surgical treatment is much more affordable.  

In the long-run, a surgical procedure will likely be more cost-effective. However, not every patient is willing to spend a large amount of money on elective surgery and may want to avoid downtime, risks, and discomfort related to a surgical procedure.  

Morpheus8 RF treatments do not involve intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, which is usually necessary for cosmetic surgery. Unlike surgery, Morpheus8 anti-aging treatment can conveniently be performed in-office.  

Patients usually do not incur any additional costs after the treatment. A majority of patients do not need to take time off their workplace. Morpheus8 treatments have a negligible risk of complication, and the patient is unlikely to incur any unforeseen costs at a later date 

As a result, surgery may be more costly due to the surgeon’s fees, surgical venue costs, anesthesiologist’s fee, or expenses associated with an overnight hospital stay.  

In addition, a surgical procedure may involve costs such as prescription medication, medical tests, and surgical accessories. However, a majority of these costs are avoided in non-invasive procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing. 

Practice Location 

Morpheus8 anti-aging RF treatment costs may vary between two practices and even between two patients at the same practice. The living costs differ from region to region. 

This can impact the costs of most goods and services, including the Cost of cosmetic treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing. 

Nature and Extent of Treatment

Morpheus8 can be undertaken on one or more facial sites such as the brows, cheeks, neck, jaw, eyelids, or chin. Additionally, it can be delivered to other body areas. The treatment costs will vary due to multiple reasons such as the number of treatment sessions, the extent of the treatment, and the time taken to complete the procedure.  

In comparison to treating a particular area such as the eyebrows or eyelids, treatment the full face and neck may cost more. However, the costs may decrease if the treatment is a part of a combined cosmetic procedure.  

Insurance and Financing 

Morpheus8 anti-aging treatment is an elective cosmetic procedure, which means that the patient will likely not receive insurance coverage for this treatment. However, patients may consider various financing alternatives to pay for the treatments in convenient monthly installments.  

Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for Morpheus8 anti-aging procedure.

The AccuTite applicator has a unique, two-pronged tip. The “arms” of the device are parallel to each other. Following the administration of a local anesthetic, the provider will insert a very fine probe of one arm in the targeted area of the skin through a minor nick.  

The probe will go into the fatty tissue layer in the subcutaneous area. The other arm of the device will travel along the skin surface, allowing for the bi-directional delivery of RF energy. When the deeper skin tissue as well as the surface of the skin is heated, it will stimulate 3D remodeling of treated site for maximum skin tightening. 

Areas Treated with AccuTite 

AccuTite device is ideal for treating difficult to reach areas with pinpoint accuracy. Although it can treat almost any area with saggy skin or excess fat deposits, some of the common facial areas of treatment include the brows, upper and lower eyelid area (peri-orbital region), nasolabial folds, chin and lower face, and neck. Body areas of treatment usually include the axilla (bra bulge), upper arms, abdomen, thighs, and knees.  

Safety  

AccuTite is based on the RFAL technology, which has been reviewed by more than 22 clinical publications showing high degree of safety. The FDA has cleared AccuTite device, which is demonstration of the technology’s safety and efficacy. AccuTite has several safeguards built into the device to ensure gentle and controlled heating, which makes the procedure safe and comfortable.
