Mole Removal Surgery
What is mole removal surgery?
Mole removal surgery is a relatively minor procedure but is undeniably important. Mole removal can be done for cosmetic reasons and/or medical reasons to prevent or treat cancer.
What to expect from mole removal surgery
Mole removal surgery is done within our clinic and can be performed using several techniques. These techniques include:
- Surgical shave
- Surgical excision using a scalpel
- Surgical excision using cauterizer
- Freezing using liquid nitrogen
For best results your treatment method will be individualized by your doctor; depending on the appearance and depth of the mole and cosmetic outcome desired.
How to schedule a consult
If you have a mole that appears atypical (i.e. changes in size, shape, or color or bleeds, itches, or is painful) it should be examined as soon as possible. For early diagnosis and treatment please contact us at 514-788-3200 for Dr. Carey and 514-788-3300 for Dr. Wang.
