This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on mole removal, Dr. Lam’s philosophy, technique, and results regarding removal of facial moles, nevi, and other facial lesions. (Also see, Scar revision and keloid management forum.)
Hi, I just had a light brown, slightly raised mole on my chin removed today via shaving and cauterization. The mole was about the size of a pencil eraser. It's Friday night so I probably won't get a response back from my doctor until Monday, so hopefully you can help me out. It looks like the edges of the mole are still light brown in colour, and I'm not sure if it is because he did not completely remove it or if that is just from the cauterization. I've attached a photo as well. Thank you in advance!
