Mole removal is available in the Wirral through Anca Breahna, an experienced plastic surgeon with a specialism in skin surgery.
Your mole removal is likely to be a relatively simple process, but that is not to say all surgeons are equal.
In this page, we will outline details relating to Anca Breahna’s expertise in a range of skin conditions, including the removal of moles and also talk about the process itself.
Mole Removal Benefits
Anca Breahna sees patients at her Wirral Clinic who are keen to see moles removed for a variety of reasons.
It can be purely aesthetic, the person not liking the look of the mole (or naevi) and so seeking a simple process that will see it removed, this done in a way to minimise any scarring.
The mole can also be a cause of irritation, often they will catch on clothing or jewellery, or it may be that they are caught when you brush your hair.
Depending on the location of the mole, shaving can also be a problem, the need to take care to avoid snicking the mole.
Some may also be concerned that the mole is an indicator of a form of skin cancer, especially if the mole has changed in size or appearance.
Whatever your motivation for seeking the removal of the mole, Ms Breahna has a number of techniques she can use to remove it in the most efficient way.
She will always check the mole and surrounding skin for any causes for concern, and any moles that may be a cause for concern would be sent off for analysis.
Mole Removal Process
In many instances, the mole can be removed without the need to cut the skin, or for there to be stitches. This process is a shave excision, it is a delicate process whereby a feathering approach is used to blend the edges of where the mole was into the skin.
Post procedure, there will be no visible sign of where the mole previously existed. A thin, razor-like tool is used for this shave excision.
In some instances, a surgical excision may be required, this where the whole mole is cut out in a process more akin to traditional surgery.
A cut is made beneath the mole, into the subcutaneous fat layer, the mole then removed and the wound stitched.
This form of removal of the mole is an excision biopsy.
Ms Breahna’s experience is such that she can always recommend the best method for removal of a mole – she has performed many hundreds of similar procedures both in her NHS practice and also for private patients.
Checking of Mole
Without exception, Ms Breahna will check every mole, this to determine the best method for removal and also if it requires further examination.
Moles removed via excision biopsy would usually be sent away for further analysis in a laboratory for tissue sampling.
Ms Breahna is a member of local skin MDTs and so please rest assured that you are in the safest of hands. Any mole that requires checking will be checked.
