Do mole removals leave scars?
I've had a mole on my face for over 30 years. Is it easy to get this removed? Will there be a scar on my face?
Scars are almost a medical inevitability, however; if the size of the mole is small at its base, then simple electrocautery with topical lidocaine paste will leave little to no evidence of the procedure used to remove it. Protection post-procedurally with diligent SPF use is imperative to the appearance long-term of the area addressed. Scars heal over an 18 month period, so protecting the area is the sole responsibility of the patient. Best of luck to you!
