What causes a soft tissue mass?

Soft tissue masses are usually caused by an uncontrolled growth of cells. Occasionally, soft tissue masses may be caused by cancer cells. More often, however, soft tissue masses are the result of a benign tumor, a pocket of fatty tissue, or a liquid-filled cyst.

So, what is a mass excision?

Simply put, mass excision is the complete removal of a soft tissue mass.

Why do you want a mass excision in Houston?

Generally, a mass excision surgery is done because the soft tissue mass has attached to a muscle or tendon beneath the skin and must be removed before it causes additional medical issues by damaging surrounding blood vessels, nerves, muscle, tendons, or bone. Masses can also cause pain by putting pressure on nerves, joints, and tendons.

Whether you want to have a mass excision for aesthetic reasons or because the mass is causing pain or other health problems, Dr. Danielle Andry and Dr. Nandi Wijay at The Oaks Plastic Surgery in Houston can help.

What can you expect for recovery after your surgery for mass excision in Houston?
