What is Cyst Excisions?
Cyst excision is a surgical process used to remove sebaceous cysts. Sebaceous cysts are also called as Epidermal cyst, Pilar cyst and Steatocystoma multiplex.
The cyst is marked with a skin marker and local anaesthesia is given to the patient. An incision is made till the subcutaneous tissues and the plane between the cysts and the surrounding tissues is identified. Then with the help of blunt dissection, the circumference of the cyst is separated. Then the area is gently pressed with thumbs till the rest of the cyst emerges out of the area. The pole of the cyst that runs deep is separated from the underlying tissue and the area is sutured.
