Moles are skin growths composed of pigment cells. While certain moles may be considered pre-cancerous, others are benign. Depending on their size or location, moles can be beauty marks or distractingly lumpy lesions. If located in areas of rubbing or shaving, moles may become infected or irritated. Our doctors’ training and years of experience insure effective mole removal with a focus on minimizing scarring and maximizing the aesthetic result.
Depending on the lesion or location, stitches may or may not be necessary. Following standard of care protocols, all removed moles are submitted for analysis to rule out the possibility of skin cancer. Dr. Reese and Dr. Hall personally contact patients with their biopsy results. The doctors provide a thorough examination of moles, comprehensive discussion and efficient treatment. Depending on the size and location of a mole, it may be possible to remove the lesion on the same visit as the initial consultation.
