Do you have moles that you dislike?
Many moles (medical term = ‘naevus’ or ‘naevi’ ) are not only cosmetically unacceptable, but they may also be a nuisance. They may get cut during shaving, bleed, or get caught on clothing, necklaces or combs. Some moles are “beauty spots”, but others may look unattractive and be a source of concern. The same may apply to small birth marks, skin tags, warts, cysts, papillomas and other lumps and bumps on the skin which need removing.
Mole Shave Excision
Doctors know that most moles can be removed simply and quickly without the need to cut the skin or have stitches (otherwise known as shave excision) although sometimes stitches may be required. The expert skin specialist, Mr Paul Banwell, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Skin Expert, uses both these methods to remove moles, skin tags and birthmarks. These small procedures are carried out under a local aneasthetic (with you awake) but sometimes sedation or a general anaesthetic might be preferable.
Moles on the face and neck respond best to removal techniques. Other body areas are more likely to leave a small patch of pale skin when the mole has been removed. Of course, all moles are examined by Mr Banwell who will identify and diagnose it before removal and if there is any concern that the moles are not completely benign (harmless growths) then sampling of tissue may be recommended with the pathologist. In these cases we like to be sure the mole is not possibly cancerous.
Mole Excision Biopsy
Alternatively Mr Banwell may decide to remove the whole mole (this is termed an excision biopsy). In most cases the moles will be sent away to the laboratory for analysis unless the surgical removal is purely for cosmetic reasons. You are in good hands as Mr Banwell performs hundreds of these procedures every year and was also the Founder and Head of the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Unit (MASCU) in East Grinstead. Mr Banwell has clinics for mole removal, surgical mole excision and skin tag removal in East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Tunbridge Wells, Worthing, Brighton and London. So if you would like mole removal or surgical mole removal in Sussex, Kent or Surrey please phone the office on 01342 330302.
