When a patient is looking to remove a mole located on their face, it’s preferred that they seek a plastic surgeon for the job rather than a dermatologist. Plastic surgeon Dr. Lee Ann Klausner has the skills necessary to produce the best-looking results. What does the surgical mole removal procedure entail?

Surgical mole removal is usually a quick and straightforward process that is almost always performed as an outpatient procedure with no need for an overnight stay. The mole itself and the surrounding area must first be cleaned and disinfected. A local anesthetic will be applied to numb the skin.

Surgical mole removal techniques will depend on the size and condition of the mole. When appropriate, Dr. Klausner will use a scalpel to shave the mole for removal.
