MOLE REMOVAL

About This Treatment

 

new-mole-treatment2

Moles or melanocytic neavi are dark marks on the skin caused by melanocytes which are the cells in the skin that produce pigment (colour). Moles may vary in colour from the light ‘flesh’ coloured mole through to brown, dark brown and black. Moles can be flat or raised, smooth or rough. Some have hairs growing from them and others are usually round with a regular edge.

 

The mole removal process is done by excision (surgical removal with or without stitches) by Dr Mia. Skin tags may be easily removed by electrocautery.

 

Pre-Procedure

You will need to book a consultation with Dr Mia to assess your moles and discuss an appropriate treatment plan. All moles are carefully assessed before removal.

At the initial consultation you will be advised of any medications you may need to discontinue before the procedure. This is to minimize bleeding, bruising and swelling.

 

Post-Procedure

Follow-up consultations occur

  • For lab results: If Dr Mia or yourself suspected any irregularities with the mole, it will be sent onto the lab for testing. Should the Pathologist find anything unusual or suspicious on your specimen you will be called back to discuss this result and a treatment plan with your Doctor.
  • For stitch removal: Follow-up depends on the area that received stitches and the type of suture that was used. Facial sutures are usually removed on day 5.

 

To prevent infection during the recovery time, you need to follow Dr Mia’s advice and keep the area clean and covered with daily applications of ointment provided by Dr Mia.

 

Downtime

You will be able to carry on with your normal daily activities, taking the post-procedural instructions into consideration. Avoid direct exposure of the treated area to the sun until it is completely healed. It is advised to use a high SPF sunblock in the treated area. You will be advised to avoid any activity which may cause tension in the treated area for a period of 7-10 days.
