Mole Removal with Dr. Kahng

Many individuals dislike the appearance of a mole on their skin, or perhaps multiple moles. Dr. Kahng is a premier Los Angeles plastic surgeon who performs the quick, convenient procedure of mole removal with little or no downtime.

What Exactly are Moles?

Moles are skin lesions that are made up of cells that produce pigment. This makes them darker than their surrounding skin, and they can present as brown, black, or flesh-colored. They may also be raised from the skin. Moles are usually benign, but it’s very important to have them checked yearly. They may develop anywhere on the body, and may appear as an individual lesion or a cluster.

How is Mole Removal Done?

Mole removal is considered a minor surgery that can be done under local anesthetic. There are a few options for the procedure, including: 

  • Surgical Excision: A scalpel or circular blade is used to cut out the mole, as well as some of the healthy tissue surrounding it.  
  • Surgical Shave: A small blade is used to shave the mole off, as well as a little of the tissue under it. This is a frequent choice for smaller moles.
  • Laser Surgery: The mole’s cells absorb the laser’s light, removing the mole from the skin surface while keeping the surrounding skin safe.
