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

"My incisions look beautiful as do my new natural breasts! - Dr. Black performed my breast ex-plant surgery. I cannot say enough good things about her & her staff & the surgery center where she performs her surgeries. ALL TOP NOTCH! I went in because my implants were hard & encapsulated. I was having some breast pain & had rashes that would come & go in my breast & abdomen area. I had a few other symptoms but really wasn't sure if they were related to my implants. My main issue was the extreme hardness & pain. She thoroughly examined me & decided I needed both capsules removed & sent to pathology for review after removal. I was on board with this decision & was more than confident she would do the best job out of any other surgeons I had looked into. After ex-plant & full capsulectomy my pathology came back with a rare cancer found in the capsule that surrounded one of my implants. Before my follow up appt. Dr. Black had contacted a physician at MD Anderson who is an expert in the type of cancer I was diagnosed with. She put me in touch with him & I went to see him 2 weeks later. I am happy to report I am cancer free but if it were not for Dr. Black removing the entire capsule I don't know what my outcome would have been. She did such an amazing job meticulously ensuring everything was removed. I am forever grateful for her skills & I highly recommend her as a surgeon. My incisions look beautiful as do my new natural breasts! Thank you so much for taking such good care of me!!!"- V. / RealSelf / Feb 04, 2023

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.
