What is a Skin Tag?

 A skin tag is a small, noncancerous growth that forms when the skin rubs against itself. While some skin tags may not require treatment, they can be removed if they are bothersome. Skin tags are the same color as your skin and often appear as a small cluster of skin tissue extending from a tiny stem. They are common, as about half of all adults will have at least one skin tag in their lifetime.

Skin tags most often appear in areas where the skin rubs against itself, such as the eyelids, armpits, groin or thighs, neck, under the breasts, and genitals.

Please note that a skin tag may also appear very similar to a different type of skin growth. If you notice any type of fleshy growth that varies in color, size, or shape, seek guidance from a board-certified provider.

Skin Tag Removal Candidates

Healthy individuals who have skin tags that are bothersome or become irritated or bleed easily can often benefit from skin tag removal. This procedure can also be performed for those who simply do not like the way a skin tag looks. The best way to determine if a skin tag can be safely removed is through a consultation with Dr. Rod, who has the skills and training to treat delicate issues, such as skin tags, for minimal scarring.

Had a few procedures here and am coming back for another. I trust these guys because they earned it. Highly recommended.

Dr Rod is a very skilled surgeon. After losing more than half my body weight, I had several different procedures done. A lot of extra skin removal and reconstruction. My results were fantastic! His staff is so friendly and pleasant to work with. His nurse Julie is incredibly kind and helpful. I highly recommend this place.
