Mole Removal in Chichester

Moles may develop when skin cells cluster instead of being evenly distributed, triggered by factors like genetics, pregnancy, sun exposure, and hormonal changes. While the majority of moles are benign, they can rarely develop into melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer.

If your mole has recently changed, the NHS offers a fast-track diagnostic service to assess the risk of skin cancer and determine whether the mole requires removal. If you are concerned about changes in your mole, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your GP for an urgent appointment.

What does the treatment for Mole Removal involve?

To begin the mole removal procedure, I numb the area surrounding the mole with a local anaesthetic. I then precisely remove the mole under the same local anaesthetic, leaving a small wound.

To close the wound, I use fine, absorbable stitches placed under magnification. There is no need for a follow-up appointment as the stitches dissolve independently.

Recovery from Mole Removal

On average, mole removals take about two weeks to heal, but facial mole removals can heal much quicker, usually in around one week. The absorbable stitches used in the procedure take about 2-3 weeks to dissolve fully.

What you can expect from Mole Removal

Usually, a mole removal procedure takes around 30 minutes. To make things more convenient for you, I offer a combined consultation and treatment appointment that typically lasts about 45 minutes, allowing you to have the procedure done in one visit.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mole Removal Chichester

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, so you should only feel a slight pinch when administering the injection. After that, the area around the mole should be numb so that you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure itself. You may experience mild discomfort and tenderness for a few days afterwards, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

There will be a small wound left behind after the mole is removed, and you may have a scar as a result. However, the scar will be quite small and fade over time. I take great care to place the incision in a way that minimises scarring as much as possible.

The area where the mole was removed usually takes about two weeks to heal. The stitches used to close the wound are absorbable, so there’s no need for them to be removed later. You should avoid strenuous exercise and activities that may irritate the area for a few days after the procedure. I will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help the area heal as quickly and smoothly as possible.
