Cosmetic Mole Removal
For cosmetic reasons, a mole can be removed in several ways:
- Shave Excision
In this method, your provider numbs the area around a mole and then uses a small blade to cut around and beneath the mole. This technique is often used for smaller moles and doesn’t require sutures.
- Excisional Surgery
In this method, your provider cuts out the mole and a surrounding margin of healthy skin with a scalpel or a sharp punch device.
- Sutures are used to close the skin
These procedures are performed in the office and take only a short time.
