About Mole Removal
Mole or lesion removal is the elimination of moles that are large, dark, bumpy, or located in an inconvenient area, requiring a more careful procedure to minimize scarring. At Lawrence Family Practice Center, our experienced physicians are experts in the removal of unattractive moles and lesions. During your appointment, the location, size, and depth of the mole will be discussed to determine the appropriate course of action. In addition, the mole or lesion will be observed to determine whether it is benign or noncancerous so it can be safely removed. Contact our office in Lawrence, KS to schedule a consultation for assessment of your lesion or mole and get more information about your options for removal.

What to Expect with Mole Removal
Most of the time, moles are no cause for concern, but many people choose to have them removed when they cause irritation, unnecessary concern, or reduced self-confidence. Certain factors, such as the location, size, and depth of the mole or lesion, will be considered to determine the best technique for removal. Lesions that are only skin deep or flush with the skin’s surface may be removed using a simple shaving technique. However, lesions or moles that are deep-seated may require surgical excision. During an excision, we will use local anesthesia to numb the area, and a scalpel will be used to remove the mole before the skin is carefully sewn closed. Total recovery after excision may take a couple of weeks, depending on the size of the mole and the technique used.
