He is a board certified plastic surgeon who recognizes the importance of providing superior results and minimal scarring after mole removal or any other type of body surgery. You can trust that Dr. Moyer will use the latest, most progressive methods to ensure your skin areas on the face or body are restored to a natural, healthy and attractive appearance.
Moles are characterized by dark spots on the skin created by overproduction of melanin. They can be raised or smooth, forming in all shapes and sizes anywhere on the body or face. Many patients elect to remove moles for cosmetic concerns, but some may need removal before they become cancerous. Mole removal is generally performed as a minor surgery so the specimen can be sent to the lab for analysis.
A dermatologist may recommend that you have a mole removed if it displays the following characteristics:
• Asymmetry: One half of the mole does not match the other half
• Border: The border or edges of the mole are ragged, blurred, or irregular
• Color: The mole has different colors or it has shades of tan, brown, black, blue, white, or red
• Diameter: The diameter of the mole is larger than the eraser of a pencil
• Evolving: The mole appears different from others and/or changing in size, color, shape
Regardless of the reason for your mole excision procedure, you can rest assured that Dr. Moyer will deliver the utmost precision and care. Mole removal is a simple procedure that requires skilled closure techniques from a plastic surgeon for optimal results.
