Scarless Mole Removal Surgery Beverly Hills

Scarless Mole Removal in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

Often moles on the face are in cosmetically sensitive areas, and traditional removal techniques and incisions can be as noticeable as the mole itself. Therefore, the “scarless” mole removal is a popular option for removal. Dr Anita Patel offers this facial surgery entails using special fine instruments and excision using radiosurgery, which decreases both blood loss and chances of scarring. The limitation of the procedure is that it removes only the protruding part of a lesion, not the elements deep to the surface of the skin, so there may be a chance of recurrence in the future. If any specimen is found to have a malignant or premalignant lesion, full excision would be required.

Treatment Overview

Following marking of the site, local anesthetic is injected, the top portion of the specimen is removed and sent for pathology, and the remainder of the skin lesion (limited to flush with the skin) is removed via radiosurgery.

  • Length of Surgery: 20 minutes
  • Anesthesia: Local
  • Post-Op Activity: As tolerated
  • Return to Work: Same day
