Syringoma, had biopsy,taken bit skin, located under eyes.Treatment?

My question is about syringoma. My dermatologist did a biopsy, cutting a small piece of my skin out. His recommendation was to continue to cut small pieces out and let the skin heal. The part he cut out healed fine. Mine are located under my eyes. Do you recommend this. Would it be wise to have a plastic surgeon do this? Thank you

The main reason for treatment is cosmetic; in particular, patients commonly seek treatment for syringomas of the eyelids and cheeks, which may be conspicuous. The goal of therapy for syringomas should be the destruction of the tumor with minimal scarring and no recurrence. However, because syringomas are embedded within the dermis, complete removal is often unsuccessful and recurrence is common.No comparative studies and no long-term follow-up studies are available on which to base definitive recommendations for syringoma treatment. Possible treatments include the following: surgical excision with suturing, scissor excision with intentional healing (in your case) ,cryotherapy or electrocautery.
