Mole Removal

Some moles might be a cause of concern, whether they are just cosmetically unattractive, causing a nuisance or are of medical concern and need to be removed.

Treatment details

This applies to small birth marks, skin tags, warts, cysts, papillomas and various other exotically named things that you might find on your skin.

Our technique

Most moles can be removed simply and quickly, either by excision and closure, shaving or freezing. I examine the mole and define it before removal, and if there is any concern that the moles are not completely benign (harmless growths) then I will ask for it to be sent away for analysis.

Fulvio's advice

For most types of mole removal, we will apply a light dressing. Stitches are generally removed after 3 to 4 days for the facial area, and after 5 to 7 days for incisions in other areas. If possible, I will bury dissolving stitches that require no removal at all.

Returning to work and normal activities will depend on the type of surgery. Most people can resume normal activities soon after surgery. I will advise the use of sunscreen to keep sunlight from permanently tanning the healing scar.

Aftercare
  • Analgesia (pain relief) – Ibuprofen and paracetamol can be taken
    ​Surgical skin tapes should be left in place for one week and replaced as directed
  • Be careful to avoid or protect the scar from sun exposure until it is completely mature
