Overview Moles are small, pigmented spots on the skin that are typically brown in color. Although they are usually harmless, many patients choose to have them removed in order to achieve clearer skin.
A small or contained lesion may be removed with excision – a simple surgical process to remove the lesion from the skin. Closure is most often performed in conjunction with excision. Healthy, adjacent tissue is repositioned over the wound. The scar is positioned within the natural crease of the skin.
Down time is minimal but no strenuous activity for a week.
