As a renowned specialist plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon who uses the latest, most advanced techniques, Dr Edinburg is highly experienced at effectively removing moles and skin tags with minimal scarring.
Moles and other skin lesions can be problematic for all sorts of reasons. The vast majority are benign (non-cancerous), but they may catch on clothes or jewellery, or you may simply feel that they are unsightly.
Because moles are often located in exposed parts of the body, it is important to get them removed professionally in order to ensure the best possible aesthetic outcome.
Moles are small spots on the skin made up of cells called melanocytes, which produce the colour in your skin. Moles are usually brown, although some may be darker and some may be skin-coloured. They can be flat or raised. Moles are usually circular or oval with a smooth edge. The majority of moles are harmless, however it is important to check your skin regularly. Any new moles or changes to existing moles should be examined by an expert.
Skin tags are small flesh-coloured or brown growths that hang off the skin. They are usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin or under the breasts. Skin tags are harmless.
Procedures vary, but many moles and skin tags can be removed within half an hour.
Dr Edinburg uses a scalpel to remove the mole/skin tag along with a tiny border of good skin. You would then have stitches placed where necessary, in a way which minimises any scarring. Dr Edinburg can also choose from a wide variety of other techniques to treat moles if appropriate. As a specialist, he has many skills and years of experience that will help him to help you.
No, you can normally have a mole/skin tag removed at the Eden Institute’s Sydney practices under local anaesthetic.
