At 111 Harley St., we advocate prevention before treatment. The first step in reducing your chances of getting to moles is always to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen and limit your sun exposure. If you proceed with skin tag or mole removal, we can assess and analyse your mole to ensure it’s not dangerous. We perform the removal in our safe, clean and sterile clinic facilities.
If your mole or skin tag is causing you irritation or concern, or you don’t like the appearance of it, then it’s possible to have a mole or skin tag removed. We’ll always send your moles for analysis, regardless of whether it appears to be dangerous or not.
The surgical approach to removing the mole will depend on their depth and size. It’s a very straightforward and efficient process.
Mole removal doesn’t require general anaesthesia, and we can operate within our safe, clean and sterile clinical facilities.
We will numb the area with a topical anaesthetic. The procedure itself shouldn’t be painful as we inject Lidocaine before the operation. After this, the surgeon will cut and remove the mole or cyst. Depending on the size of the mole or cyst, you may require a couple of stitches.
When we send the mole for examination, you should have the results within two weeks. The incision itself can take two to three weeks to heal.
There is minimal downtime after mole removal. Patients can return to their regular activities within a week and return to work within a week.
Mole removal or cyst removal usually takes around 30 minutes.
