The technique used by the dermatologist and the time taken for the Preauricular Tag Removal in Abu Dhabi depends on what skin tag is made up of, the number of tags, and their complexity of them. The doctor first takes a thorough examination of the ear tag and then accordingly plans the treatment. The method used can be either surgical or non-surgical
In the surgical procedure, the doctor first cleans the area of treatment and then uses a local anesthetic to numb the area of treatment. General anesthesia may also be used depending on the doctor’s preference and the type of tags to be treated.
Once numbed, a small cut is made on the base of the tag and it is removed from the skin some millimeters below the surface. In this way, the bump is avoided. The cut is then closed with removable or dissolvable sutures. It is then bandaged to avoid any risk of infection.
A scar is left behind on the treated region that will slowly fade and becomes light with time.
The non-surgical procedure is not instant and takes several days or a month depending on the tags to be removed. The doctor may put a string around the tag(s) or staple it from the base. This is to stop the supply of blood to the tag. With time, the tag dies away and falls off. It may however result in a little bump on the site.
