Surgery for mole removal
A young girl came to us seeking removal of a large mole on her left cheek.Having moles on the face and the body is a very common occurrence, however it becomes a concern for the patient if it becomes too large or is located in a very prominent location.
Mole-removal surgery performed at Richardson dental and craniofacial hospital Nagercoil Tamilnadu India
Even though she had been living with the mole on her cheek for years,she wanted it to be removed finally. Her routine blood investigations were done. The case was planned to be done under local anaesthesia with an estimated time of 45 minutes. The mole measured 1.7*2cm and hence could not have been closed primarily. A local flap,called a rhomboid flap which basically borrows tissue(skin) from adjacent normal skin to cover the defect created by the excision. Very fine sutures were used to effect the closure such that no scar would be formed.
The surgery was succesfully done with an esthetic result. The patient is very happy and would come on the 6th post-operative day for suture removal.
