Most mole removal procedures are day cases. You will be fully informed of everything that’s going to happen before you arrive at the hospital for your appointment.
A local anaesthetic will be administered in the first instance to ensure the procedure is pain free. In most cases, Demetrius will then use a scalpel to either remove the mole fully, or lower it to skin level, depending on what you’ve discussed. You will have a scar, but this will fade. There may be some discomfort immediately following the procedure, but over the counter painkillers will make you comfortable again.
As long as no complications arise there will be no overnight stay and no need to book longer than the day of the procedure off work. Many mole removal procedures are carried out successfully every day, giving this procedure an excellent safety record. There are only minimal risks involved and these will be discussed with you during your consultation.

The area that has been anaesthetised will feel numb. You will be advised not to put pressure on the area, and to take care not to accidentally bite your lip or cheek, until the numbness has worn off.
It can take up to half an hour for a local anaesthetic to be fully effective. The procedure won’t be performed until your surgeon is certain that the anaesthetic is working.
The anaesthetic will take 3-5 hours to wear off completely.
