Mole removal procedures are commonly performed by the top rated double Ivy League educated plastic surgeon at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC (located in Manhattan, New York). Moles may emerge at any point in an individual’s life for a number of reasons and individuals may choose to remove a mole for aesthetic or functional reasons. Our board certified surgeons offer three methods of mole removal including surgical excision, laser treatment, and shave removal. Each removal method depends upon the color, position, shape, size, and texture of the mole, as these aspects may cause physical or aesthetic issues. All moles removed with the best in class Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC team are sent to a lab for further testing to determine if the mole is cancerous or not. All mole removal procedures offered by our top of the line board certified surgeons are performed under local anesthetic.
Mole removal is offered by the best in class double Ivy League trained plastic surgeon at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC (Manhattan, New York).

The ultimate treatment method depends on the size, shape, texture, color, and position of the mole, and the final surgical technique is determined upon examination of the mole.
Laser Mole Removal: Most appropriate for small, elevated moles on the face or other regions where minimizing scarring is important. The melanin pigment within the mole is broken down by light energy during laser mole removal. Laser mole removal is non-surgical and can be performed in under 45 minutes.
Shave Mole Removal: Moles that protrude from the skin may be shaved off utilizing a scalpel to carefully cut along the edges of the mole until it is removed (just below the skin’s surface). A pink indentation from the procedure may be present for some time before it fades away. The procedure is surgical and uses local anesthesia.
Surgical Mole Removal: Surgical mole removal is employed with larger moles that have potential for regrowth. The procedure consists of surgical excising the mole, along with a small amount of surrounding healthy skin. Dissolving stitches are used to close the incision and there is minimal to no scarring.
