What are The Advantages of The Mole Removal Intervention?

Moles are colored spots or unaesthetic growths that are present in different areas of the skin. Each person has fewer or more moles. While some of them considered a mark of beauty and personal charm, others are rather unsightly and may represent a source of discomfort.

Reconstructive Surgery

Normally, a mole does not require removal if it does not cause aesthetic problems for the body of the patient. However, some of them are potentially carcinogenic and should be treated immediately.

 

Moles can be regarded as cancerous when they:

  • Change color over time or have multiple colors on the surface;
  • Are asymmetric and part of the moles are larger;
  • Change dimensions – moles generally exceeding 6 mm in diameter are suspected of being dangerous;
  • Suddenly evolve;
  • Show intense pigmentation spots on the inside;
  • Become symptomatic;

 

There are many methods for removing moles. Some of the most common cosmetic surgery interventions performed in such situations include excision, electrocautery and even laser therapy. The first type of surgery is chosen especially for flat moles. If the mole is suspected of being cancerous, this is the most recommended solution. An incision is made at approximately 1 cm in the area surrounding it, ensuring all cancerous cells are removed. A local anesthetic is used for this mole removal intervention, causing fewer risks for the patient.

 

Electrocautery excision is generally chosen in the case of very prominent moles, disturbing for the physical aspect. This procedure involves electricity used for burning the dangerous cells of the area, without even requiring suture. In addition to this, the wound will not even bleed, while the scars left will be very small and almost invisible, depending on the size of the mole. There is no possibility of electric shock and all the energy produced is safe and is not associated with any potential complication.

 

As for the laser excision method, it is the most modern method used for removing moles and is only recommended for smaller ones. However, an important fact to consider is that the laser beam cannot penetrate very deeply, so moles treated should be small and superficial. The scar left is star-shaped (edge teeth).

 

The risks of mole removal surgery are small and range from infections and allergies to the mild anesthetic to nerve damage (depending on the location). Most often, the only consequence of removing a mole is a scar left in the area, which can also be removed at a later time.

All about Cosmetic Mole Removal by Dr. Brian Evans

Laser surgery is the best way to go about cosmetic mole removal. This method is done when a mole interferes with a person’s life. If you have a mole on your face or other prominent area that is troubling you, you can have it surgically removed with laser surgery. Consult Dr. Brian Evans a Board Certified plastic surgeon for the best guidance. It is usually painless and the mole will be gone.

 

If you have a flat mole that is troubling you and you want to try to fade it, you can try to use a bleaching cream to lighten it up. This may work to not remove the mole, as the mole is imbedded in the skin, but it will at least fade the mole so that it is not as noticeable. For the most part, to completely get rid of the mole you are better off to see a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist.

 

The younger you are when you get the mole removed; the less of a scar there will be when you get older. At first, there may be a slight lightening of the skin during cosmetic mole removal, but it will fade over time. Many people feel that it is better to cover up a small white discoloration than the mole, especially if the mole is very large.

 

Most cosmetic mole surgery is performed on children who have rather disfiguring moles that are on their face. As you can imagine, this can hamper their self esteem and make them feel as though they do not want to go out of the house. Parents may feel that their children will be teased by other kids if they have a disfiguring mole on the face. For this reason, cosmetic mole removal is often performed. The as the child gets older, the area where the mole was once located will gradually fade so that the area is hardly noticeable. As he child grows into an adult, it may not be noticeable at all. This depends on the size of the mole, how deep it was imbedded into the skin and how it was removed. In order to minimize any scarring at all, laser surgery is usually performed to for cosmetic mole removal.

 

Cosmetic mole removal is done purely for cosmetic purposes. In most cases, people are born with these moles that end up hampering their appearance. Moles on other parts of the body, unless they are very noticeable, are often left alone.

 

A suspicious looking mole may be examined by a dermatologist and removed with punch biopsy to check for cancer cells, although this is extremely rare, if not non-existent in children. Some doctors will recommend cosmetic mole removal for moles that are atypical just as a precaution so that the mole does not turn into a problem later in life.
