A 30-year-old female asked:
By which method is a fibrous papule on the nose usually removed? how long until the spot heals and how noticeable is the scar or mark left behind?

Plastic surgeon: In my opinion facial lesions are best removed by a plastic surgeon if you want to minimize postremoval scarring, deformity and discoloration.
