Benign Skin Lesions / Moles

Moles, or naevi, are very common and are sometimes unsightly, or irritating, particularly on the face.

They may have features that are suspicious for malignancy. They may be multiple or interfere with shaving. Naevi can be removed in a relatively straight forward manner under local anaesthetic (injection into the surrounding skin) in our office procedure room.

In place of the naevus, or mole, there will be a scar, which can vary depending upon skin type, location and an individual’s susceptibility to scarring. Your scar will be made as good as it possibly can be given these factors.

A number of other skin lesions can be removed in a similar fashion including, cysts and small benign tumours.

Birth marks and vascular lesions in children are often better removed under general anaesthesia in the hospital or Day Surgery setting.

View before and after photos to get a general idea of what other patient’s outcomes were after surgery. This is no guarantee you will have similar results, even if you have a similar body. Results will vary by individual patient and many factors impact your results. Remember that every patient is unique and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore, no two surgical procedures, or rejuvenation treatments, will get the exact same results. Images of actual patients are shown for information purposes only and are provided with patient consent for use by A/Prof Gianoutsos only.

Our philosophy is to treat all patients as we would be expected to be treated ourselves.
