Removal of warts, moles, skin tags is a common request by patients for cosmetic reasons. Other times a patient may want a tag, warts and mole removed because it is irritating their skin. There are different techniques or ways to remove these depending on the type of wart and mole and where it is located.
Healing time for most of these is typically quick and the removal is done in a simple outpatient office visit. The removal area needs to be properly cared for and cleaned to avoid infection. Instructions for proper care will be given to you at your appointment. Moles may be shaved, cut or lasered. Local anesthetic may be applied so there is little to no discomfort. Other lesions or growths may be removed with: electocautery, excision, laser or cryosurgery.
