Mole removal

In this page, we will outline key details about mole removal in Chester – who it is suitable for, the procedure and also the process for checking moles.

Why Opt For Mole Removal?

There are a number of reasons patients seek the removal of moles.

One is simply for the aesthetic, concern over the appearance of the mole (or naevi), this can apply to moles anywhere on the body.

The moles may also be an inconvenience, they can get caught on clothing or jewellery such as necklaces, or get caught when hair is brushed.

Shaving can also be problematic if there is a mole or moles to navigate.

The moles may also be a cause for concern for the person seeking treatment, a worry that they could be an indicator for skin cancer.

Regardless of the motivation for the removal of the mole, Ms Breahna has a number of techniques for the procedure and will always check the mole and surrounding skin for any causes of medical concern.

The Process for Mole Removal

Moles can often be removed without the need to cut the skin or have stitches, this is called a shave excision.

This technique, when carried out by a skilled and experienced surgeon will minimise scarring – the neck and face typically responding best in terms of leaving no visible scar.

The process of shaving a mole is far more delicate than the name might have you imagine, it utilises a thin, razor-like tool to carefully remove the mole via a series of slices.

A feathering approach is used, this essentially blends the edges of where the mole was into the skin, ensuring there is no visible sign of where the blemish formerly was.

In some instances, a surgical excision will be required, this is a procedure whereby the whole mole is cut out via a procedure more akin to traditional surgery.

The whole mole will be cut out during this procedure, with the cut going below the mole into the subcutaneous fat layer.

The wound would then be closed and stitches applied.

Removing the whole mole is called an excision biopsy.

Checking the Mole

For every mole, Ms Breahna will perform an examination, this is performed before removal to ascertain the suitable form of procedure and whether it should be sent for further analysis.

When moles are removed via excision biopsy, in most cases they would be sent away for further analysis in a laboratory for tissue sampling.

It is worth noting that Ms Breahna has performed many hundreds of these procedures in both her NHS and private practices and she is a member of the local skin cancer MDT to Chester.

About Chester

Chester is a beautiful walled city located within the county of Cheshire and on the River Dee.

The city was founded as Castrum, the Roman fort located there called Deva Vitrix – this was one of the main army camps in the UK. Deva then became a major settlement in its own right.

Chester has a long and rich history, it was given city status as far back as 1541 and its importance is shown by the castle and walls, these remaining among the most complete city walls in the UK. The castle received numerous extra fortifications through the centuries, the initial castle built under the instructions of William the Conqueror.

Chester remained important through later centuries, for instance the nearby Newtown, with the Shropshire Union Canal were key to distribution.

The city is now a popular one for tourists, this a key industry, so too are public administration and retail.

A large number of well-known celebrities and famous people were born in Chester, or lived in the city, these include Russ Abbot, Beth Tweddle, Ben Foden and many people’s favourite James Bond – Daniel Craig.
