You may be wondering how much it is to remove a mole for cosmetic reasons?
With more pressures on the NHS and GPs with time and cost issues, it’s no surprise that you may not get a positive response for removal of a mole for cosmetic reasons! So how much is it to remove a mole privately?
Moles can appear anywhere on the face or body and are mostly harmless. We all have the odd mole and some of us gain more every year!
I, for one, have more moles on my abdomen than ever. During a recent mole check I was told that this is likely to continue. Fortunately, my moles are harmless although irritating as they’re raised. One had grown considerably and was snagging on my underwear so I decided to have it removed! I was given a local anaesthetic which meant I didn’t feel a thing! A scalpel was used by the doctor to remove and initially there was a tiny scar left. That was a little while ago so now the only noticeable mark is a slightly paler circle of fresh skin which will gradually tan and blend.
The majority of our patients want their moles removed because:
(A) they either irritate them by getting snagged or caught on clothes, or (b) perhaps they find their placement unattractive and hence affect their confidence.
Both reasons are deemed to be ‘cosmetic’ and are currently treated by the local GP only on rare occasions!
If you’ve noticed changes with a mole then get it checked. A darkening of the area, border changes or sudden growth can all be reasons to be suspicious. For peace of mind and advice on removal you’ll pay £50 for a consultation. Once removed, (a quote will be given at the consultation) your mole may be sent for histology with results back in days! The price is dependent on placement and time taken to remove. Prices start at £90 for a simple procedure. Facial excision will be more but will be aimed at giving you a great aesthetic outcome. A meticulous excision on the face to ensure the absolute minimum of scarring by a skilled doctor or surgeon could be up to £450.
