Mole Removal

Unfortunately, over the last decade, more and more clinical conditions have been removed from the NHS funding list, leaving patients without a cost-effective option for surgical management.

Our doctors have over 20 years of combined surgical experience, having performed over 2000 procedures to date, both in the NHS, military and private setting. Our primary principle is to do the least possible (ie least invasive) to get the job done, thereby ensuring the best possible cosmetic outcome. Our doctors employ a variety of specialized skin surgical techniques to achieve this aim. Check our FAQs to learn more about this. Drs Patel and Shrivastva carries out all surgical procedures between them, in our purpose-built surgical suites. We are also registered with the CQC to carry out such procedures.

Aftercare


  • This is dependent on the site of surgery, type of lesion removed and technique used.
  • You will usually be advised to apply petroleum jelly (Vaseline) from a new pot, to the wound, to aid healing.
  • It is best to avoid getting the wound site wet for 24-48 hours but specific advice will be given to you at the time of the procedure.
  • Sun protection with a Zinc Oxide based formula is also advised to reduce the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Please note, the above aftercare is just a guide. Full aftercare advice will be given to you when you attend your appointment with us.

FAQ

  • Avoid ALCOHOL for 2-3 days prior to treatment and strenuous EXERCISE on the day of procedure.
  • Some supplements and medicines can increase bleeding and bruising risk which include. Some of these are listed below and if you can stop these for 1 week prior to surgery, please do. NOTE, IF YOU ARE BEING PRESCRIBED ANY MEDICATION, YOU MUST DISCUSS THIS WITH OUR DOCTOR IN ADVANCE, WHO MAY ADVISE YOU TO STAY ON THE MEDICINE OR PERHAPS DISCUSS TEMPORARILY STOPPING IT WITH YOUR PRESCRIBING DOCTOR.
    • Aspirin
    • Ibuprofen
    • Aleve
    • Motrin
    • St. John’s Wort
    • Vitamin E
    • Multivitamins
    • Krill Oil, Fish Oils,
    • Flaxseed Oils
    • Omega-3
    • Gingko
    • Ginseng
    • Garlic
    • Glucosamine
  • There are certain prescribed drugs that may make you more susceptible to bruising as they are known to thin the blood. Some of the following medications are examples of “blood thinners”:
    • Rivaroxaban
    • Heparin
    • Warfarin
  • DO NOT STOP ANY PRESCRIBED MEDICATION WITHOUT FIRST DISCUSSING THIS WITH BOTH OUR DOCTOR AND YOUR OWN PRESCRIBING DOCTOR.
  • If you would like to reduce the risk of bruising further, eat fresh pineapple, as it contains Bromelain that has been known to decrease bruising. You can also take Bromelain supplements 2 weeks prior to injections. Some of our patients find it helpful to start taking Arnica tablets 5 days prior to their treatment date.
  • We recommend that you are well rested and hydrated before your treatment. Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes prior (unless stated otherwise) so you are in a relaxed state before your injectable treatment.

Tags, moles – these are usually removed either with a surgical shave or by curettage (same principle as a shave but a curette is used to remove the surface lesion). This is then followed with cautery which is essentially a superficial burn of the wound site to stop bleeding and seal the wound with a carbon crust. This crust falls off – a little like a scab – around 5-14 days later.

Flat moles – if you cannot feel the mole ie it is flush with the surrounding skin, there is nothing to shave off. The main options we would use are PLEXR PLUS or a full excision (which requires stitches).

Cysts – these have to be fully excised out and you will have temporary stitches in place. We will book you an appointment to have these remove.
Please note: We are unable to give you an idea of likely diagnosis or technique we would use, without a consultation. If you have a video consultation, final decision to treat and how can only be made when you are seen in person.

In theory yes you can. However, Dr Patel will need full details of all your medication and medical history at the consultation, to allow him to best advise you on how things can proceed. If you are on warfarin, please bring your warfarin card with you, which gives information such as your recent and target INR values.
