Mole Removal

mole_removal_lg_02Moles are clusters of heavily pigmented skin cells, either flat or raised above the skin surface. While most pose no danger, some-particularly large moles present at birth, or those with mottled colors and poorly defined borders-may develop into malignant melanoma. Moles are frequently removed for cosmetic reasons, or because they’re constantly irritated by clothing or jewelry (which can sometimes cause pre-cancerous changes).

Most moles are removed surgically. If the mole is small, the procedure can be done quickly and easily, in our office, using local anesthesia. The procedure may be a simple excision, which usually leaves a thin, barely visible scar.

“When I look in the mirror, all I see is this mole. I hate it!”

A common concern of our patients considering mole removal……”I know people go crazy over models with moles, but it’s different on someone aging. It just looks like one more sign that I’m not in my prime anymore. There’s even a hair growing out of it that I have to pluck at constantly. I wish I could get rid of this mole. I would feel so much more attractive with just that one simple change, but I don’t want to go through a surgery that may leave me with a scar that I hate worse than the mole.”
