Mole removal is a fast and easy surgical procedure for the removal of a mole, whether it be raised or flat. The purpose of mole removal surgery ranges from cosmetic purposes to prevention of the development of malignant melanoma. Others have moles removed because they are in a location that causes irritation when rubbed by jewelry or clothing. This too can lead to precancerous changes in the mole.
Small moles are removed in the office with a quick and simple excision. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area around the mole. Any scar due to the excision is usually very thin and barely visible. Check out the real NY Face Place patient images below to see the results of mole removal.
