Although some see them as beauty marks, moles in visible places on the body can be frustrating. It is estimated that every adult has between 10-40 moles on their skin. Most will go unnoticed, but some moles are harder to ignore and there are many reasons people choose to have their moles examined or removed.
Mole removal is regarded as cosmetic surgery and is viewed as a “procedure of Limited Clinical Value” by the NHS. This makes it unlikely that you can get a mole removed through the NHS. Choosing to have private mole removal allows you to skip the stress of waiting for an appointment and get immediate answers.
You might be struggling with a loss of confidence due to the appearance of a mole, or you might be seeking peace of mind for an abnormal growth. Concerns around abnormal appearances on the skin are common and we take every concern seriously. We can easily and quickly assess your moles and other skin conditions and arrange mole removal if necessary.
If you would like your mole removed and would like to be seen quickly, enquire with us today and we can provide you with a cost of removal.
A mole is a discoloured spot or growth that develops when the pigment cells in your skin all develop in one small cluster. Most moles are a darker shade than the rest of your skin, usually black or brown, but they can also be red, pink, or even blue. Some moles are flat while others are raised. They are usually round, but some can take different shapes as well. Not all moles change, but the ones that do change slowly over the years may get bigger, darker, raised, or hairier as time passes.
Our private mole removal clinic has state of the art equipment and comfortable and modern amenities. Our staff are professional and friendly and are there to assist you in any way they can.
We offer two types of mole removal: excision and shave.
Excision mole removal is done under local anaesthetic and the clinician uses a scalpel to cut away the mole along with a small border of skin. If necessary, the hole will be closed with stitches and then dressed. Moles may be sent to our laboratory for histology if necessary and your clinician will discuss all of this with you during your initial consultation.
Shave mole removal is performed by shaving the mole from the surface of the skin. The wound is then cauterised to seal it and stop any bleeding. This procedure removes raised moles but it can also leave a few cells behind. It is relatively straightforward and painless and doesn’t require stitches.
Your clinician will advise you which removal method is best for your mole during your consultation.
Our clinicians can remove multiple moles in your appointment. If you need longer than the booked appointment time we will assist you in booking a further appointment at a time convenient to you.
The cost of multiple removals will be confirmed to you before the procedure so you can decide if you wish to proceed. There are no hidden fees for multiple mole removals.
Summerfield Healthcare’s medical reception team are specially trained to deal with all enquiries in a professional, prompt and private manner.
An initial triage based on the photos you send us. This will determine the most suitable clinician and provide a guide price for removal.
A consultation is required prior to removal, to ensure the lesion(s) is as described during the triage process and is suitable for removal on the day. Consultation and removal can take place on the same day if both clinician and patient are happy to proceed.
We will always try for a shave excision wherever possible. The removal price is based on the presentation of the lesion, and the location on the body. Please note there is an additional cost for moles located on the neck or higher, this will be discussed with you prior to booking.
If a shave excision is not possible, the lesion may require a full excision in order to be removed. The removal price is based on the presentation of the lesion, and the location on the body. Please note there is an additional cost for moles located on the neck or higher, this will be discussed with you prior to booking.
