Do I need a Mole Removal Procedure?
It is very normal to develop one or several moles throughout your lifetime. Moles can occur anywhere on the surface of the skin, and can be flat or raised. It is not uncommon for skin moles to change shape, size and appearance over a lifetime. In cases where a mole is determined to be cancerous or pre-cancerous (which can be determined with a mole biopsy), mole removal surgery is almost always recommend. More often, however, moles are a cosmetic issue.
Many people with prominent moles, particularly in the facial area, feel that the growth takes away from their overall appearance. Mole removal surgery can help rejuvenate your look and eliminate an unsightly growth altogether.
The only way to determine if you are a candidate for mole removal surgery is to schedule a consultation with an experienced medical professional. Despite what you may have heard about natural mole removal or mole removal at home, these methods are unsafe and not recommended for use.
Mole Removal Surgery
Mole removal surgery is a short, efficient procedure. The amount of surgery required and the cost of mole removal are dependent on the amount of moles being removed and the individual nature of your skin. During the procedure:
- Anesthesia is administered
- A small incision is made to remove both the mole itself.
- A small pocket of skin is removed around the mole, to prevent regrowth.
- The incision is stitched up.
Mole removal is most often performed as an outpatient procedure, and features little-to-no recovery time. Because of today's advanced surgical techniques, the amount of scarring from mole removal surgery is minimal and in many cases, not noticeable at all.
