What happens during mole removal surgery?
If the mole is flat, Dr. Tutino might choose to do a punch excision. He will place a sharp cylindrical device on top of the mole. The device will remove a round plug of tissue, including the mole. If the mole is less than 1mm, Dr. Tutino might allow it to heal independently. If the mole is more prominent, he might use sutures to close it.
If you have a raised, light-coloured mole, Dr. Tutino might choose to do a shave excision. It is also called shave removal. He will use a sharp scalpel to shave the outermost layers of the mole. It could go deeper, but that will depend on the purpose of the removal and the mole’s location. Usually, there is a fifty-fifty chance that the mole might grow back in several years. There will be slight bleeding, but nothing that requires stitches. Dr. Tutino will place a small bandage over the area to help it heal quickly.
Suppose the mole is potentially cancerous, bumpy, or dark; he will use a scalpel to cut the mole and some surrounding area in an elliptical shape. Dr. Tutino will make sure to remove the mole with minimal scarring. Once done, he will sew the skin back together. According to studies, this is the most cost-effective solution to mole removal. It also has the least amount of post-operative hypopigmentation.
