What About scarring?
When a plastic surgeon removes your mole, not only do you get rid of your mole, your plastic surgeon will understand the best course of action to limit the amount of scarring from the excision. With more than 40 years of combined plastic surgery experience, either Dr. Elliott Black or Dr. Summer Black will provide you with natural, attractive results. If scarring does happen (as it does with the removal of large moles), your plastic surgeon can make recommendations for other treatments to minimize the visibility (such as laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and more).
"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017
"Dr. Summer Black has provided me the highest level of care during any and all procedures. Summer is honest and candid giving her patients knowledge and guidance. She is there for you whenever you may a question or concern. She is an excellent surgeon and cosmetic doctor. I have recommended Dr. Summer Black to my family and friends, and they absolutely love her. The staff is friendly and provides the privacy you may be looking for. I have even had appointments with Dr. Elliot Black and he is equally excellent, of course he is !"- C.S. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2019
"I was very pleased with the reconstructive breast implant surgery performed by Dr. Elliott Black over 25 years ago. Now at 51 years of age, 26 years later, I returned to him for an upper /lower eyelid surgery and C-scar revision. I could not be more satisfied and happy with the results! Drs. Summer Black and Elliott Black were no less than awesome in making me feel I was in the best of hands. They both have amazing bedside manners at each and every visit, as well as their staff at the office and the surgical center. I would highly recommend them both to my closest of friends, and I have!"- L.A. / Google / Feb 02, 2019
"I am so very pleased with Dr. Summer Black. She is very professional, office & hospital staff were great. Overnight stay at the surgical center was comfortable & just what I needed before traveling back home after surgery. She is precise with her work, I have very little scarring. She is also down to earth, companionate & understanding of my specific needs. Have already recommended her to others, love her! #explant#totalcapsulectomy"- T.B. / Google / Jan 30, 2019
"Explant. En bloc. Outstanding surgeon! - I researched doctors prior to having my explant as I had been having some issues that were possibly related to my implants not working well with my body and overall health and genetics (namely, several homozygous MTHFR genes). I had a face-to-face consultation with Dr. Black in Metairie on January 7th, and by the end of that meeting I had made up my mind that Dr. Black was the surgeon for me...."- B. / RealSelf / Jan 22, 2019
What To Expect
Depending on the size, depth, and location of your mole, there are many different ways to approach its removal. Our plastic surgeon will make sure the area is numb before starting the procedure.
- Shaving: A blade will be used to quickly shave the mole off the skin.
- Laser treatments: Lasers can effectively remove a small benign pigmented lesion from the skin without sutures.
- Surgical excision: The plastic surgeon will make an incision in the skin to cut away deep seated moles, and then suture the incision.
Typically, our patients spend less than an hour in our office having a mole removed. Once the patient is at home recovering, there may be some discomfort in the treatment area, but that should only last for a few days. We will discuss how you should implement proper skin care to limit scarring.
