Skin Tag Removal San Antonio

Do we remove skin tags?  It’s a question frequently asked by our patients, and the answer is “All the time!”

Overview of Skin Tags

Tiny to floppy, usually flesh-colored, and often pesky.  They are very common around the collar and neck of adults; also under the arms, in the groin, sometimes under the female breast.  The they are “squamous papillomas” or “acrochordons” – but most of us know them, simply as skin tags. And they are harmless.

Does Insurance Cover Skin Tag Removal?

Since true skin tags are harmless we don’t submit fees for their removal to insurance companies.  Even when patients are bothered by how they hang up on clothing or jewelry, or feel they are uncomfortable we still treat them as ‘elective” or “cosmetic” and don’t try to send them through your health insurance.
