What Goes Into the Cost of My Mole Removal?
The first thing to consider is the procedure itself– what is the most effective way to remove it? During your full-body skin check or cosmetic consultation, your provider will suggest which procedure is best for you. At Levy Dermatology, we use the following techniques:
Shave or Punch Biopsy
Depending on the size of the lesion, type of mole, and the patient, a simple shave or punch biopsy is the quickest and simplest solution to remove a non-malignant mole.
Used for a variety of skin lesions, excisions can be used for mole removal as well. During this procedure, your provider will not only remove the mole itself but a margin of normal-looking skin around it to ensure complete removal and to prevent further damage to the skin. The wound is then closed with deep, long sutures, and the healing process can begin.
