Moles are common skin growths and can occur anywhere on the body. They can be small and flat, or small and slightly raised, looking more like a dark freckle. Other moles can grow quite large, and depending on their location, can be aesthetically bothersome or prone to catching or rubbing on clothing or jewelry. While there is much talk about cancerous moles, most moles are benign, meaning they are not harmful to your health. Moles can be easily removed by Dr. Azouz of Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.

What Causes Moles?

It is known that moles are formed by the collection of cells called melanocytes in one area. However, it is not completely understood why this happens more often in some people than others. Genetics play a large part, as does sun exposure. This means some patients may have a single mole of concern, while others may have multiple moles requiring removal at one time.

It is important to select a highly qualified plastic surgeon to perform mole removal. Regardless of the size of the mole, there is potential for scarring, and as the mole increases in size, so does the risk of developing a scar. Dr. Azouz’s skill and technique can minimize scarring while ensuring complete removal of the mole or moles in question.

Mole Removal in Dallas

When a mole is small or located in a desirable area, it is often considered a mark of beauty. However, this is not the case for the majority of visible moles. As such, it is not uncommon for patients to request moles be removed from their face and neck. Moles can interfere with makeup application or draw unwanted attention. Wearing jewelry can draw the eye to the location of a mole, and you may avoid wearing your favorite necklaces or chains. Very dark or large moles can be a source of self-image anxiety and impact self-esteem.
