Removal of a mole Contact us
We each have more or less moles. Most moles do not interfere with normal life in any way, and their existence will not even be thought of. Sometimes, however, the moles may start to bother or undergo changes. In this case, it is advisable to consider removing the moles with an expert’s treatment. Removal of moles is one of the easiest and safest procedures, so there is no need to fear it.
When should you consider removing a mole?
If the moles starts to grow, becomes irregular at its edges, or changes color, it is advisable to consult a doctor about possible mole removal. Itching, bleeding, or pain are also clear warning signs.
Sometimes the mole may also be in such a position that it repeatedly rubs against the shoulder of a bra, for example. In this case, it is easiest to get rid of the nuisance. This is because constant irritation of the mole can break the surface of the mole.
Moles can also be removed for aesthetic reasons. When removing moles from visible places, it is highly recommended to let the plastic surgeon perform the procedure to ensure the most discreet outcome possible.
What happens when you remove a mole?
No prior preparation is required to remove a mole, and multiple moles can be removed at the same time. Moles can be removed in several different ways, such as by cutting or laser. A professional will consider what is the most appropriate treatment for you based on the location and shape of your moles.
Moles removal is usually performed under local anesthesia and is a very painless process. During the healing of the mole removal before the stitches are removed, exercise, swimming and sauna should be avoided. The less it is strained and stretched, the better the skin heals, so it is worthwhile to follow the care instructions exactly.
If necessary, a test piece of the mole can be examined, in which case it is possible to determine whether the mole is benign or malignant.
Can there be any disadvantages to remove a mole?
Removing a mole is by no means dangerous. However, scar tissue may grow in the place of the removed mole, which may look aesthetically unpleasant. Therefore, the removal of harmless moles in visible places should be carefully considered, because if scar tissue is created, the end result may be more disturbing than the mole itself. If you are unsure, you should seek the opinion of your doctor.
