Benign Growth Removal
Growths such as hemangiomas (red bumps on the skin consisting of blood vessels), seborrheic keratoses (warty-like skin growths), skin tags, and milia (small whitish bumps often on the face) are benign (no malignant potential) and in most cases, their removal is not covered by insurance. Patients may elect to pay themselves for removal of these growths. All of these growths are removed at the discretion of the dermatologist and removal is performed through different techniques depending on the type of skin growth and location. The specific method of removal is chosen by the dermatologist to achieve the highest level of aesthetic outcome.
