Mole Removal Services by Dr. Foiz Ahmed

Introduction

Mole removal is a common procedure sought by individuals looking to remove unwanted moles for either cosmetic reasons or because the mole presents a health risk. At Dr. Foiz Ahmed’s clinic, we offer expert mole removal services, combining advanced techniques with personalized care to achieve optimal results. Our commitment to your health and beauty is our top priority.

Why Mole Removal?

Moles are typically harmless skin growths, but sometimes they can change in appearance or become bothersome. Reasons for removal include:

  • Cosmetic Concerns: Moles in highly visible areas or large in size can be aesthetically displeasing.
  • Discomfort: Moles that rub against clothing or get caught on jewelry can cause irritation.
  • Health Precautions: Moles that change in color, size, or shape can be indicative of skin cancer and should be evaluated and possibly removed.

The Mole Removal Process

Consultation

Your journey begins with a detailed consultation with Dr. Foiz Ahmed, who will examine the mole in question, discuss your medical history, and determine the best course of action based on the mole’s characteristics and your personal goals.

Techniques for Mole Removal

Dr. Ahmed utilizes various techniques for mole removal, chosen based on the mole’s size, location, and type. Options include:

  • Surgical Excision: The mole is cut out along with a small area of the surrounding skin. This method is often used for larger moles or those that need to be examined for cancer.
  • Shave Excision: The mole is carefully shaved off flush with the skin surface. This method is typically used for smaller, less problematic moles.
  • Laser Removal: Ideal for small, non-cancerous moles, laser treatment uses light energy to break down the mole tissue.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery time varies depending on the removal method, but Dr. Ahmed and his team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and quick healing process. Most patients can return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure, with any discomfort being manageable with over-the-counter pain medication.
