Mole Removal in Boca Raton at Farber Plastic Surgery
“Mole” – a word that evokes thoughts of fairy tale witches. Your mole isn’t nearly as pronounced or horrid, but you feel self-conscious about it nonetheless.
What Is Mole Removal?
Moles are not just a cosmetic concern; if your mole is in an area that is covered by clothing or constantly bumped, it can be quite painful. Dr. Farber understands how moles affect your self-image, and he also is aware that mole removal should not result in a significant scar. That would just replace one skin blemish with another.
Is Mole Removal Right for Me?
Most moles can be safely removed by Dr. Farber, and in some cases, the moles should be removed for medical reasons. General practitioners are trained to remove moles, but these clinicians do not always consider the resulting scar during the procedure.
Meet Dr. Farber
Dr. Scott Farber is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 10 years of experience who is dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality, personalized care. A Southern Florida native, Dr. Farber is well-versed in the latest surgical and non-surgical procedures and techniques.
What Happens During the Mole Removal Procedure?
Moles are removed by one of two methods, and Dr. Farber determines which method is best during your consultation appointment. For the first method, Dr. Farber numbs the treatment area and uses a scalpel to cut away the mole. He then sutures the incision using a technique that will minimize the scar. The second method used by Dr. Farber is removing the mole through cauterization to burn and destroy the mole.
On the Road to Recovery
Healing from a mole removal procedure is the same as healing from a wound. You can return to your normal activities, but you should protect the area from any additional injury.
