Removal of Moles, Cysts, Skin Cancers and other Skin Concerns

It’s not uncommon to be diagnosed with skin cancer in your 40s, 50s or beyond. A Plastic Surgeon can help biopsy the cancer with a clear margin so you can assess the stage.

But also, some people want to remove certain types of moles, cysts or other skin concerns they are unhappy about, aesthetically (appearance-wise).

In terms of moles, who has the most famous mole on the planet? It has to be supermodel Cindy Crawford, surely?

Cindy Crawford is known for her mole, and she doesn’t want rid of it either.

In an interview with a fashion magazine Cindy recalls one of the worst cover campaigns in her past. “The one that makes me cringe the most is British Vogue. The first time they put me on the cover, they airbrushed off my mole,” says the supermodel. “Whenever they mess with the mole, I cringe!”

Somehow, Cindy’s mole is sexy – but she’s lucky – not everyone is happy with their moles. They can be devastating to self confidence and often the idea of wearing a bikini or making a public appearance can be off-putting.


But not everyone loves moles on their faces – nor skin tags, cysts, skin cancers or lipomas.

Moles are extremely common small bumps or areas of skin where the colour has changed. They can occur on any part of the skin and although most moles are brownish they can also be flesh coloured, blue, or black. They shouldn’t worry you, they are almost always benign and everyone has them.

So what’s the problem? Well, when they are in a high profile area like your face, or a potentially embarrassing one, such as your breast they can eat away at your self-assurance. They can cause you to feel uptight in public, shy and self-conscious.

Are there any solutions for removing a mole that eats at your body image and confidence? Scar removal is a fairly straightforward procedure which can easily removal the problem mole and bring back your confidence.
