Cosmetic Mole Removal

Cosmetic Mole Removal

Moles are blemishes of the skin and are very common. They can occur anywhere on the body and are usually harmless. Sometimes if a mole is in a particularly prominent location, such as the face, it can have an effect on self-confidence and therefore removal is preferred.

Mole Removal at Spencer Hospitals

The procedure itself is relatively quick and straightforward, you will normally only require a local anaesthetic and will be able to go home the same day.  The most common procedure involves removing the mole with a scalpel and then stitching the area. Other procedures involve shaving the mole down to the same level as the surrounding skin or freezing the mole off using liquid nitrogen gas. Your consultant will advise which is most appropriate for you.

There may be a small scar left by the operation, however the procedure is very safe with thousands carried out successfully every year.
