Atheroma – a neoplasm that can appear on any part of the body. Especially this disease “likes” to occur in open areas, such as the face and neck. That is why the surgeon tries not only to get rid of the problem, but also to make its past existence as invisible as possible. Experts recommend using the radio wave method to remove atheroma. With it, you can make the scar almost invisible to others.
Removal of atheroma by radio wave method
In fact, this method is a surgical operation. Only the incision is made not with a conventional or laser scalpel, but with a radio wave one. The method has many advantages:
- Together with the opening of the cyst, there is an instant stop of bleeding from small vessels. This helps reduce the risk of bruising, which usually occurs with a metal scalpel. In addition, visualization is improved during the procedure, which reduces the time of the procedure.
- At the same time, radio waves have a bactericidal effect – this reduces the possibility of purulent complications in the future.
- The method has the lowest postoperative pain. This effect was achieved due to the coagulation of the nerves in the affected area.
- In the case of removal of small formations, there is even no need to suture.
- Minimal traumatic effect, which helps prevent the formation of rough scars. It also promotes faster healing.
Removal by the radio wave method of one atheroma on the face, neck and any other place in time does not exceed half an hour. Despite the use of a non-metal scalpel, local anesthesia is still applied.
After the incision, high-frequency radiation is directed to the affected area. As a result, the formation together with the capsule is completely removed without residue. The wound is treated with an antiseptic, and a bandage is applied on top. Just a few minutes after the procedure, the patient can already go home.
When removing a large cyst, observation in the clinic is most often prescribed.
Contraindications of the radio wave method for the treatment of atheroma
The main contraindication to this procedure is the presence of a pacemaker. The fact is that the device itself can affect it, and therefore there is a chance that the frequency will go out of rhythm – this will lead to improper functioning.
In addition, due to the use of anesthesia, it is not advisable to use the method for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
