Dr. Steven Holzman has extensive training and experience providing high-quality treatments for a variety of skin irregularities, including scars, moles, cysts, lipomas, tattoos, dog bites, skin cancers, and more. All of us here at Become are committed to providing superior patient care, and Dr. Holzman personally oversees all corrective skin treatments. Our office also offers a line of medical-grade skincare products that can help both female and male patients improve the health and aesthetics of their skin.
Using advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Holzman can help improve the appearance of aesthetically disruptive scars. Prior to the procedure, he will take into account factors such as your skin type as well as the size, shape, depth, and color of your scar(s) in order to determine the optimal treatment method. Depending on your unique needs and aesthetic goals, these methods may include non-surgical techniques—such as injections—or surgical options—such as skin grafting and Z-plasty. Dr. Holzman believes that taking a personalized approach to each case is vital to achieving optimal results, and he will work with you to find the treatment option(s) that can best address your scar(s)
Moles are a common form of skin irregularity that can appear nearly anywhere on the body in a range of shapes, sizes, and colors. Some patients may find moles to be aesthetically disruptive, and wish to have them removed. Dr. Holzman is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who can help minimize or eliminate moles using advanced surgical techniques. It is also important to keep in mind that, while many moles are benign, some can be indicative of skin cancers. Dr. Holzman will carefully assess your moles prior to treatment and select the removal option that is best suited to your health needs and aesthetic goals.
Cysts are sac-like growths filled with fluid, gas, and/or dead skin cells that can appear anywhere on the body. They are commonly seen beneath the skin of the groin, neck, scalp, back, and underarms, or growing around the sites of injuries or piercings. They can occur for a variety of reasons, including congested hair follicles, clogged oil glands, acne, genetics, and injuries. While typically benign, cysts can enlarge overtime, and they can be both aesthetically displeasing and physically uncomfortable, depending on their location. In some cases, they can even become infected, which can lead to pain and swelling. Dr. Holzman will carefully evaluate the depth, size, and overall nature of your cyst(s) and develop a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to you.
A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin, fibrous capsule usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are not a cancer and do not become a cancer. They are found most often on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and armpits, but they can occur almost anywhere on the body. One or more lipomas may be present at the same time. Some lipomas can be removed with in-office surgery, while others may require out-patient surgery. Depending on the number, size, and location of your lipoma, Dr. Holzman will choose a treatment method that will work best for you.
Tattoo Removal by Surgical Excision
Tattoo removal by surgical excision – also called surgical removal – is a more invasive option for tattoo removal, but it allows for greater precision with a one-time procedure. Surgical excision is also useful for tattoos that do not respond well to laser treatments. Some small tattoos might be good candidates, while others may be too large to remove with a scalpel. Dr. Holzman removes the tattoo using a scalpel and closes the wound with advanced suturing techniques that minimize scarring. Tattoo removal is a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance.
Dog Bite Repair
Dog bites frequently occur on the face and hands and can leave scars that are cosmetically unacceptable. Dr. Holzman is skilled at repairing complex bite injuries both at the time of injury and with delayed scar revisions, as needed.
Skin Cancer Removal
Skin cancer is very common in sunny Texas. Dr Holzman has years of experience in treating skin cancer here in Texas, and he has even more experience from his plastic surgery training in Florida. Dr. Holzman will remove suspicious moles with expert excision and closure techniques that leave minimal scarring. In addition, Dr. Holzman frequently performs reconstruction for patients who have undergone MOHS surgery with their dermatologist.
