Mole or Cyst Removal and other Skin Concerns

Moles, cysts, skin tags and warts are extremely common and removed using minor surgery. Some people want to remove certain types of moles, cysts or other skin concerns they are unhappy about, aesthetically (appearance-wise).

Dr Gittos is a Specialist Plastic Surgeon in Auckland and can remove Moles, Cysts, Skin Tags or Skin Cancers

Is your Mole attractive?

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.


Not everyone loves a mole 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.

Mole and Cyst Removal Procedure

Your procedure can be carried out at the clinic and will take 20 to 60 minutes – you are effectively an outpatient. All tissue is sent off for analysis just to make sure there are no abnormal cells, and then minute, discreet stitches will be inserted.

Recovery After Mole or Cyst Removal

There will be a very small scar, but this will fade with time.
