Cysts are common and associated with many factors, including infectious diseases and genetics. These closed sacs or capsule-like structures can be filled with liquids, semisolids, or other organic materials. Although many cysts are asymptomatic, some can be quite painful or unsightly. Removing them is usually an uncomplicated procedure and can leave your skin looking smooth, clear, and healthy again. Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles cyst removal doctor, offers treatments for cysts.
If you suspect that you have a cyst, Dr. Kerendian, expert in cyst removal in Los Angeles, will perform a complete physical exam. Some types of cysts can be diagnosed by visual exam or palpation, but diagnostic tests such as CT scans or needle biopsies can be appropriate for others. In most cases, cysts are benign and have a good prognosis. Once removed, they do not typically return.

Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles cyst removal doctor, will explain your treatment options. Not all cysts are treated similarly. Your treatment will vary based on the location of the cyst, the size of the cyst, and the cause of the cyst. Some cysts can be drained with sterile syringes during in-office procedures, while larger cysts can necessitate triggering symptoms in other parts of the body, and may require surgery. If surgery is indicated for a larger cyst, it can be performed laparoscopically in many cases, simplifying recovery. We will work with you to determine the best way to proceed.
Cysts do not necessarily reoccur after treatment unless you have a specific disease associated with their development. Your risk of developing a cyst is higher if you have a chronic inflammatory condition, infections, or certain inherited diseases. Dr. Kerendian, expert in cyst removal in Los Angeles, will explain our aftercare instructions to reduce the risk of complications and promote healing after your procedure.
A cyst can make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed, but removing it can be a simple procedure with lasting benefits. Call us today to learn more or to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kerendian, cosmetic surgeon.
