Dr Rippon will use surgical excision to guarantee permanent mole removal. This procedure can leave a small scar which will improve over time. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort. Dr Rippon will use a scalpel to excise the mole, leaving a small linear scar roughly the size of the mole removed which will improve over time. (PRP can be used to improve and shorten the time of improvement - please see the use of platelet rich plasma on our website). The wound will then be stitched and a dressing applied. Benefits of removing moles by surgery is that moles can be sent off for histology to test for malignancy. Prior to treatment, Dr Rippon will go through a medical aesthetic consultation with you. He will assess your mole and decide whether it is suitable for treatment. If treatment is decided you will be able to book an appointment for the procedure to be carried out by Dr Rippon at his clinic, Rippon Medical Services, 2 Spinners Yard, Fisher Street, Carlisle, CA3 8RE. You will be given after care instructions and will be reviewed at 7 days by Dr Rippon for removal of any sutures and have your wound checked. You will be covered by our aftercare procedure promise and be given access to advice post procedure at any time.
