Sebaceous Cyst Removal
Cysts are small growths that can occur in most tissues or organs in the body. Sebaceous, or epidermal cysts, commonly occur in the skin, often on the face. While these small growths in the skin are usually benign and painless, they can pose a risk of infection and may cause cosmetic concerns for the patient. At LM Medical NYC, we offer treatment for skin conditions, like epidermoid cysts, from a board certified dermatologist. We also offer sebaceous cyst removal by our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, at our clinic in Manhattan.
Sebaceous cysts can form in the deep layers of the skin dermis or in the subcutaneous fat layer under the skin. In most cases, these cysts are painless and do not pose a health risk. However, they can become infected or impact the growth of bone or tissue surrounding them. Plus, the bump under the skin, especially on the face, can be an aesthetic issue for the patient. Many people prefer to have facial sebaceous cysts removed to prevent the risk of infection and to improve their facial appearance.
Facial Epidermoid Cyst Treatment
Sebaceous cysts are also known as epidermoid cysts. Removal of these small cysts can be performed by a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon. At LM Medical NYC, we have both medical professionals under one roof who can provide facial cyst treatment or removal.
