Nevi, or moles, occur on almost everyone. These skin growths come in many varieties, from flat, brown spots that look like larger freckles to raised, larger moles. Nevi can appear almost anywhere on the body, but many are visible on the face, neck, chest and arms. While the majority of moles are harmless, removal may be requested for cosmetic or medical concerns. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer cosmetic mole removal at our facility in Toledo, OH.
While some moles may be removed if they are believed to be pre-cancerous or show signs of melanoma, often they are just an aesthetic or comfort nuisance. The moles that grow on the neck can be irritated by necklaces or clothing, causing discomfort. Facial moles may be distracting or unattractive. Cosmetic nevi removal can remove unwanted moles for an improved facial appearance. The procedure can be performed with excision or laser treatments, depending on the size, type and location of the mole.
