Mole and Lesion Removal

Cosmetic Facial Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic Surgery: Mole Removal

Mole And Lesion RemovalWhen removing a mole, it is important that the area to be treated will be clean. Depending on the cosmetic surgeon’s preferences, this will be done either with alcohol, Betadine, or another suitable material.


After the area has been cleaned, the cosmetic surgeon will numb the area with anesthetic. The surgeon will then take a scalpel and shave the mole off flush or slightly below the level of skin.


Following this, an electrical instrument will cauterize the area, or a solution will be placed on the area to stop any bleeding. After the bleeding has been stopped, an antiseptic and bandage will be applied to ensure that infection does not occur.
