Skin & Body
Benign and malignant skin lesions
Benign skin lesions like moles, cysts, lipoma (fat lump) can be removed under local anaesthesia, eventually accompanied by medical hypnosis.
Scars, wounds and burns
Wound healing is a complex process, which goes through different stages before fading in colour and firmness. Some scarring develops abnormally, resulting in thick or palpable scars, accompanied by itching and pain.
Regarding each treatment
After consultation and clinical examination, Dr Schaepkens van Riempst will discuss with you the possible treatment(s), each with its advantages, disadvantages and eventual complications. If appropriate, she will give you more information using sketches or pictures.
The final result of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery can often only be observed at one year after the procedure; during this time, the scars fade, the swelling decreases, the treated area becomes more harmonious and natural.
In the early postopertive period, Dre Schaepkens will see you regularly until healing is complete, followed by three monthly consultations during one year.
