Our patients usually ask us what they should expect to happen after their mole(s) have been removed.
There are two main ways of removing a mole. The first is called a shave excision and the other is called a full excision.
The shave excision works best for a mole that is slightly raised. In this procedure, we go under the mole and the removal leaves a flat white mark and a slight dent in the skin. The size of the mark is roughly the same size as the base of the mole, but generally it leaves a much smaller scar compared to the option below.
A full excision removal is carried out on flat moles and guarantees full removal of a flat mole. We go right round the mole on either side and this leaves a scar line. The length of the line is generally almost three times longer than the length of the mole, although we always aim to minimise the size of the scar left behind.
Thank you to the wonderful three ladies who carried out the mole removal it was a pleasure to be your patient. The moles are healing really well 2 weeks on.
I was told I needed an operation in July and being on a waiting list with no dates I contacted Diamond Skin Care, Had appointment within 2 weeks and operation within another 2 weeks, Great service I knew someone was there if I had any concerns, Everyone was friendly and approachable, On the day of operation the room was very calm and relaxed, The doctor and Nurse were great chatting away to me and listening telling me what was happening at each step which was very reassuring, The scar has healed well and you can’t see it, Thank you Diamond team.
I had 2 facial moles removed at Diamond Skin Care Clinic, Norwich. This was back in July, and there are virtually no scars now. I also wanted a third one removed but couldn’t due to the close proximity of my lip.
