Prepare for Summer with Mole Removal Surgery

Summer is here, and with it comes the desire to show off your skin. But if you have a mole that has been bothering you, it can be difficult to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. That’s where mole removal surgery comes in. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong and the team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC can remove unsightly or problematic moles to help you be ready for summertime fun.

Atlanta Mole Removal Basics

First things first, it’s important to understand what a mole is and why it might need to be removed. Moles are often harmless, but they can sometimes turn cancerous or become a source of discomfort or embarrassment. If you have a mole that is increasing in size, changing shape or color, or causing irritation, it’s a good idea to get it checked out by a dermatologist.

If Dr. Stong recommends mole removal surgery, there are a few things you should know. The procedure is typically done under local anesthesia, meaning you’ll be awake but won’t feel any pain. Depending on the size and location of the mole, Dr. Stong may use a scalpel or a laser to remove it. The procedure is usually quick and straightforward, taking anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.

After the procedure, you’ll likely experience some swelling, redness and scarring. Dr. Stong or a member of his team will provide you with aftercare instructions, including how to care for the wound and what to expect during the healing process. It’s important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure a smooth recovery.

Mole Removal for Summer

One of the biggest benefits of getting mole removal surgery before the summer fully arrives is that healing can be quick, so you can enjoy all the fun summertime activities you have planned before the colder months roll around. It’s important to avoid direct sunlight and to wear sunscreen to protect the area while it’s healing. You should also avoid swimming and other activities that could cause the wound to become infected or irritated.

Do you have a mole on your face that you want to be removed before summer? Mole removal surgery can boost your confidence and help you feel more comfortable in your skin. Dr. Stong can explain the risks and benefits involved in a confidential consultation at our Atlanta office. Contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC today to learn more.
