Sebaceous Cyst Removal at Ederra Bella

Ederra BellaSebaceous cysts are common and nearly anyone can develop them. These noncancerous growths can be irritating and cause pain and discomfort, depending on the area of the body they develop.

What is a Sebaceous Cyst?

A sebaceous cyst is a growth that forms from your sebaceous gland. This gland produces oil that coats your hair and skin. A cyst can develop when a gland becomes blocked, which allows the oil to accumulate. This can occur if there is trauma to the area, such as a skin condition like acne, or even a mild scratch. The damaged gland will continue to produce oil but will form a soft lump in the area. Think of a balloon filling with water, and this will give you a good idea of this process. While looks can be deceiving, do not think of a sebaceous cyst as a pimple. The temptation to remove the cyst yourself can lead to infection and increase your risk of scarring.

Are they dangerous?

Sebaceous cysts are usually benign, but it is important to have any skin abnormality examined by a doctor. Dr. Myla at Ederra Bella can provide a thorough examination to assess your problem. The location of the cyst can cause problems as well. If the cyst is present on the scalp, the act of brushing your hair can cause the cyst to become inflamed and painful. These cysts can range from mildly irritating to very painful, so proper treatment is necessary to give you back your confidence.

Sebaceous Cyst Removal-The Process

Once the cyst is evaluated, the team at Ederra Bella will advise you on the best course of action. The cyst can be drained and removed with minimal scarring. It is important to ensure the complete removal of the cyst wall, or the cyst may come back. This is another reason to visit Dr. Myla for a proper evaluation and treatment. Pay attention to the site of removal and look for any signs of infection. After proper removal, the chances of the cyst reoccurring are minimal.

We all want to look and feel our best, but sometimes we are faced with challenges that can shake our self-esteem. Dr. Myla and the team at Ederra Bella are here to help walk you through all of your treatment options concerning sebaceous cyst removal and aftercare.

Dr. Bennett is absolutely amazing! From the very beginning, I felt incredibly comfortable and at home. She is highly skilled and top notch with everything she does. The results of my liposuction were incredible and my skin has noticeably been transformed by Dr. Bennett's facials and skincare line. She is a highly skilled, extraordinarily gifted doctor with the most beautiful spirit and genuinely cares about each one of her patients. I give Dr. Bennett and her staff my highest recommendation. Her staff is always kind, courteous and professional.

Love the family like environment. My experience with the doctor and everyone in the office began with the follow up phone call from the online inquiry. Felt like I have known each of them for years. They made my experience so much easier than I thought it would have been. Just being in the office is a comforting beginning to my procedures. With the procedures that I did have I am quickly seeing some results. I would definitely recommend anyone to this establishment.

Let me first say that this place is so cute! The ambience is amazing. Amanda and her staff are extremely friendly, attentive and professional. Chanel performed a hydra facial with light therapy and I immediately saw results. I have been receiving compliments on my skin daily and I give all credit to Dr. Myla’s PrettyRX skincare line! Try Chanel and Dr. Myla out, you won’t regret it! Plus there’s plenty of free parking!

Karen A.

The Royal Treatment! From the moment you walk in the staff make you feel special. The Hydrafacial was beyond amazing and far exceeded my expectations. I'm still glowing! Chanel who did my facial was a complete joy, knowledgeable and very professional. Dr. Myla is a true Boss lady and rockstar physician. I can't wait to book my next appointment.

Caro C.

Dr. Myla Bennett is great. I found her on Instagram! After seeing many of her cases, I decided to make an appointment for a virtual consultation. I'm in NH where we don't have plastic surgeons that specialize in ethnic skin. Making that appointment was the best decision ever. She developed a regimen for me that I followed diligently. I never had horrible skin but Dr. Myla definitely put my skin on another level. I get compliments all the time...and I NEVER wear makeup. Her products are great too! Definitely give Dr. Myla a call, and don't hesitate if you are outside of GA.

Ederra Bella is the best! Dr. Myla is very knowledgeable and she goes well beyond the call of duty to make sure her patients are well-informed. The staff is very friendly and the second you walk into the office, you immediately feel like you’re part of the family. I have and will continue referring Ederra Bella for anyone seeking services related to skin care and plastic surgery. I do want to add, Dr. Myla has just launched her skin care line, PrettyRx and it is absolutely amazing. I’ve gotten so many compliments, from random people I see during the day to make-up and skin professionals, telling me about how great my skin is. The products are light, gentle and, most importantly, they work! If you want clear, pretty and youthful skin, PrettyRx is what you need.

Towanda D.

Dr. Myla, is absolutely amazing, I trust her with my life. I had surgery and it ended up being two surgeries because of a issue she identified and made sure it got taken care of. Dr. Myla goes above and beyond to make her clients feel beautiful and important. I called and text her and she always answered and assisted with any questions, no matter the time. I would recommend her for any services, because she is very professional and knows her stuff. Thank you and your team Dr. Myla, for making me preserve my pretty!.
