There are many reasons why a mole can be removed from the face or body. These unsightly growths can be psychologically burdensome and lower self-confidence. Moles may also change their appearance, altering size, shape or color. In some rare cases, moles may sometimes develop into cancerous growths.
Mole removal is a delicate operation because it requires the elimination of a skin feature. Our technique of removal of moles and the aftercare we recommend virtually eliminates the risk of unattractive scar or discoloration. In most cases the excision defect is repaired with a special suturing technique that makes the defect heal like a small dot that eventually disappears.
The mole removal procedure can be performed under local anesthesia in the office. In most cases, the sutures will be removed within 7 days.
Although many moles are completely benign and have very little impact on your day-to-day life or health, there are still several reasons why you may want to have a mole removed. Here at Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Mardirossian and his team are highly experienced in mole removal.
Reasons to Consider Mole Removal
In some cases, it may be in your best interest to have a mole removed from your face or your body. Here are some situations in which our patients come to us for their mole removal needs:
- They lower self-confidence. Moles can have a psychological impact on your wellbeing, especially if they’re large or if they are on your face. Some of our clients come to us for mole removal to improve their self-confidence.
- They can become cancerous. Although most moles are benign, there is a rare chance that they can become cancerous growths later in life. Removing moles before they become cancerous can benefit your health.
- They get in the way. Men and women alike might find that they bump into their moles when applying makeup, shaving, or getting dressed. This can result in painful injury and annoyance. In this case, mole removal can improve our patients’ quality of life.
