Experts in Minor Surgery

Minor surgery is any minor operation that can be performed under local anaesthesia, with short turnaround times and on an outpatient basis. This type of surgery covers the removal of small warts, skin appendages or moles that are visually bothersome and the patient wishes to have them removed.

It also includes small touch-ups on ears, such as correction of holes normally caused by the passage of time and reduction of nipples or areola in men who wear tight clothing and do not want it to show through.

Resection of small skin appendages

The resection of small skin appendages refers to the removal of warts, raised moles or other appendages that are both visually and tactilely uncomfortable. The removal of these appendages is performed under local anaesthesia, they are simple, short and low-risk procedures. The suture is aesthetic, so there is no scar and the stitches are removed 5 to 10 days after the operation. If there is any doubt about the origin of the excised tissue, we will send it to the pathological anatomy service for analysis.

Enlarged holes

In some people, due to the passage of time or the use of very heavy earrings, tears can occur in the earlobe. In these cases we carry out a small operation, closing the current hole with sutures to make a new hole in another location so that the person can wear their earrings normally. The procedure usually takes about an hour and is performed on an outpatient basis.

Correction of nipple projection and areola diameter

Some thin men may have an exaggerated projection of the nipples or an excessive diameter of the areola. If the person likes to wear tight-fitting clothes, this is visualised as a relief and can produce an unsightly and uncomfortable image for the sufferer. Both anomalies can be solved by means of a small, simple operation under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis.

The nipple is reduced by means of an incision in the crown and the four remaining flaps are sutured. The diameter of the areola is reduced by resection of part of the surrounding pigment and a circumferential suture. Both procedures are uncomplicated, painless and very low risk.

The risks are minimal, no greater than that of having a filling done at the dentist. Some complications may be associated with the administration of local anaesthetics or allergy to some type of material or medication.

We always make aesthetic sutures so the scar is practically imperceptible. After the healing period we must remove the stitches made with inert material that leaves almost no long-term scarring.

Yes, it is more frequent than we think because for men who suffer from an exaggerated projection of their nipples and like to wear tight-fitting clothes, it is very annoying both because of the rubbing and the unsightly appearance that it causes. It is one of the most frequent interventions.

Yes, because the person who has a torn hole in the earlobe cannot wear earrings or they fall too low. For this reason, people of a certain age often come to our surgery with this problem. It is a simple, low-cost and aesthetically very pleasing procedure.
