Farber, MD, FACS, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality, personalized care.

“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.
Why Choose Dr. Farber?
Scott Farber, MD, FACS, is a fourth-generation surgeon with over ten years of medical and surgical training who has distinguished himself in the fields of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery with both his academic achievements and esteemed surgical training. Dr. Farber was trained in New York by three of the biggest names in plastic surgery – Dr. Sherrell Aston, Dr. Daniel Baker, and Dr. Alan Matarasso. As a native of southern Florida, Dr. Farber is excited to work with patients in Boca Raton and surrounding communities to help them look and feel their absolute best. Dr. Farber uses only the most advanced surgical techniques, and when combined with his unparalleled training and proven techniques, he provides his patients with the utmost excellence in care.
Dr. Farber sets himself apart from other plastic surgeons with his philosophy on cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. In addition to the advances in techniques and technologies that are used by Dr. Farber for cosmetic procedures, the field of plastic surgery is being more widely recognized as something other than a vanity-based decision for patients. As part of the newer generation of plastic surgeons, Dr. Farber not only has the skills, training, and techniques to provide excellent care to every patient, but he also has this modern perspective of cosmetic procedures – he knows that improving your appearance through plastic surgery gives you a fresh outlook on life. He understands the deeper purpose of your decision to make subtle changes to your skin, face, and body, changes that mean much more to you than simply looking better, and he is excited about being a partner in your journey toward a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
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.
