Moles, or nevi, are removed for a variety of reasons (cosmetic, cancer potential etc.). They are typically removed surgically by excision with closure or cauterization or by shave method. Rarely they maybe treated by laser.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in their cosmetic national data bank statistic reports of 2010, tumor removal (including skin cancer)procedures were performed in 4,042,955 patients that year. That is a 2% increase from 2009.
Dr. Roudner’s surgical goal is to remove the nevi completely if possible in the safest and most aesthetically pleasing manor, as well as obtaining a tissue diagnosis to ensure complete removal and benign nature of the mole while minimizing visible scars.
Dr. Roudner may perform a shave biopsy for minor nevi or when in an aesthetically difficult area to excises or he may perform complete excision when aesthetically pleasing or in need for definite tissue diagnosis.
