A mole that is considered “benign” is one that may be cosmetically removed. We can remove benign (non-cancerous) moles or skin growths anywhere on the body that you don’t find aesthetically pleasing. Depending on the type of lesion, we can cauterize them or gently excise them using a surgical blade. The spot is then covered with a bandaid for 5-7 days to promote proper healing. This treatment is minor and doesn’t usually involve any ‘downtime’.

Moles are a common skin condition that can occur anywhere on the body. While some moles can be a sign of skin cancer, others are benign and may be removed for cosmetic purposes. Cosmetic mole removal is a simple procedure that can be performed by a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon.

Before performing cosmetic mole removal, your healthcare provider will examine the mole to determine if it is benign. A benign mole is non-cancerous and does not pose any health risks. If the mole is suspected to be cancerous, a biopsy may be performed to confirm the diagnosis.

Once it has been confirmed that the mole is benign, it can be removed using one of several methods. One of the most common methods is cauterization. In this procedure, a heated electric needle is used to burn the mole off the skin. The area is then covered with a bandage for a few days until it heals. Another method used for removing moles is excision. This involves using a surgical blade to cut the mole out of the skin. The area is then sutured and covered with a bandage until it heals.

Cosmetic mole removal is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it is important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions on caring for the wound to prevent infection.
