Best Candidates for Mole Removal Plastic Surgery NYC New York NY

Mole removal encompasses the removal of skin tags, raised moles and flat moles. The best candidates for this procedure are patients who are either dissatisfied by how a mole looks cosmetically or are concerned by the appearance of an irregularly shaped, colored, or sized mole. These growths appear as flat or raised clusters of heavily pigmented skin cells on or above the skin's surface. 

While most pose no danger, some moles may develop into malignant melanoma. Particularly worrisome moles are those that have mottled colors or irregular edges. If you are concerned or dissatisfied by the appearance of your mole, or if your mole is constantly irritated from rubbing against clothing and jewelry (which can sometimes cause pre-cancerous changes), you may want to consider mole removal surgery.
