Congenital Nevi Procedure Information

Recovery

Most congenital nevi procedures are on an outpatient basis. Patients return for a follow-up in seven to ten days for suture removal. In some cases, there are monthly follow-ups. Additional surgeries are commonly required and are scheduled during the follow-up process.

Doctor's Note

“I see a great deal of anxiety in parents who are seeking treatment of congenital nevi for their children. That’s why I take plenty of time during our initial consultation to get a thorough understanding of your family’s apprehensions about surgery on a small child. I am honored that you are placing your trust and confidence in me with such a monumental responsibility. Making your family comfortable with every aspect of your treatment is the most important part of my job.”
