At Elanic we have a one-stop-shop for moles where you will be seen and the options for removal discussed with you. If you are happy to go ahead most treatments can be booked in straight away in most cases. Suspicious moles can only be removed surgically as a specimen must be sent to pathology for analysis. Before you seek treatment for any mole it must be seen by one of our Consultant Plastic Surgeons to determine that it is benign and treatment can be carried out.
There are different ways to remove a benign mole but we only suggest the following because the results are clinically more effective.
C02 Laser Ablation
This technique effectively vapourises the mole and tends to leave the best possible scar. In fact, in many cases, the scar is almost indiscernible after treatment. This treatment is highly specialised and you should always make sure you have been examined by a Consultant Plastic Surgeon before going ahead as a melanoma should never be treated this way.
In some cases, the size or the location of the mole means that it is better removed surgically. Ideally, a Consultant Plastic Surgeon is the best qualified and more experienced practitioner to make this decision. At your appointment with Elanic, your surgeon will discuss the options with you and surgery can be carried out as a day case basis at our state of the art on-site theatre.
