Mole Removal in Southampton

A mole can occur when skin cells grow in a cluster instead of evenly distributed throughout the skin tissue. New moles can be triggered by a number of factors including genetics, pregnancy, sun and hormone changes.

The vast majority of moles are completely benign. Rarely a mole can develop into melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer.

If your mole has changed recently, the NHS provides a fast-track diagnostic service. The result of these tests determines whether your mole can be removed. If your mole has recently changed and you are concerned then please contact your GP for an urgent appointment.

What does the treatment for Mole Removal involve?

The first step is to numb the area around the mole with a local anaesthetic.

I then precisely remove the mole under local anaesthetic.

The removal leaves a tiny wound which will be closed with fine, absorbable stitches that are placed under magnification. There’s no need for a follow-up appointment as the stitches will dissolve all by themselves.

Recovery from Mole Removal

Mole removals heal in an average of two weeks. Facial mole removals often heal much quicker, in around one week.

The absorbable stitches take around 2-3 weeks to break down fully.

What you can expect from Mole Removal

A mole removal usually takes around 30 minutes. I can book you into a combined consultation and treatment, which lasts around 45 minutes and contains the procedure in one visit.
